Crochet Corner recently received some donations. . .
a lovely crocheted shawl,
and a large ripple. . .
so large I can’t lay it out flat on the driveway “photo carpet”.
Ellen, the nursing home’s Rec. Dept. director, suggested I hold an informal raffle as a way to decide which of the three Crochet Corner regulars would get the shawl and blanket. Since I couldn’t stand the thought of someone leaving without a prize, I set aside a scrap ripple, #35 – “Peaches & Raspberries” for a third raffle prize.
But before I got around to weaving in all the little popped-out yarn tips on that donated ripple, S joined us in the Crochet Corner. . .
Now I needed a fourth prize!
Easy enough to make another ripple with yarns from the Crochet Corner stash and a little 3-ounce skein of Wintuk ‘Juicy Red’ from Karen of MA,
plus – a last-minute addition – some pale pinks from my scrap box.
Boy, did I hurry to finish this, not only so B will stop asking, “What happened to that blanket you were going to raffle?”, but also so we can hold the raffle before someone else joins our group, requiring yet another raffle prize!
It’s amazing how fast you crochet! 🙂
I’ve made this ripple so many times over the years, it seems to almost crochet itself! – Oh, how I wish that were true. lol –
I timed myself a while back. They still take me at least ten hours, depends on how quickly I choose a striping pattern.
