Christmas ripple-first repeat


Yes I did start a Christmas ripple. I plan on making a few for gifts so thought I might need to start now. I scoured the stores for holiday yarn and well....there is none. The lady in the yarn department at Walmart said the holiday yarns come in around September. So I got the multicolor red-white-green on Ebay and bought solid red and green Caron Perfect Match locally.

The red stripe in the photo looks a little orange, but it is not. Will post the finished product.

(Megan: thanks for your encouragement-I mastered the granny ripple pattern!)

Pattern: Granny chevrons #190 (200 Ripple Stitches)

Cool! I was thinking about adapting a round ripple pattern to make a tree skirt -

My four year old daughter has just said "I think that blanket is very pretty, I would like to make it when I am older"! She speaks for both of us (although I am probably old enough!)

Nice! I just love christmas colors. In the future you may want to check out knitting-warehouse.com great prices and the shipping is reasonable. I bought 3 afghans-worth for my christmas gifts.
