The results of the Crochet Corner raffle were incredible. Although she had 3 chances out of 4 of winning a ripple, B, who wanted one more than any of the other ladies, instead won the shawl! We all groaned on her behalf, but no one holding a ripple volunteered a trade.
A bit of a sore loser, B immediately handed the shawl back to me! I asked if she wanted to give it to one of that day’s drop-in visitors and she pulled the name of the shawl’s happy new winner.
A little later, while she was out of the room getting coffee, I suggested to the other ladies that I make B a ripple of her own. Everyone agreed, so I quickly pulled all the pink and purple yarns, – her favorite colors – plus some black and white, from the Crochet Corner stash bin and concealed them in the bag that had held the raffle prizes.
Once home, I added purple scraps, which include a very dark purple chenille, plus two partial skeins of bright rose: natura Deluxe Acrylic ‘Azalea’ from Karen of VA and an unlabeled one from Sandi of MD.
My striping sequence is – 2 rows pink, 1 darker purple, 1 lighter purple, 1 white – then – 2 rows pink, 1 darker purple, 1 lighter purple, 1 black – except where I did otherwise. lol
I think B will like it.
Notice that the two ends match. . . sortof.
