Memories Ripple

After seeing all the lovely ripples on here (especially the big ones!), I have decided I would like to make a ripple large enough to cover my bed. But not just any ripple. I want a lacy one, made with yarn left over from projects I made for friends and family. A "memory" ripple, if you will.

So I went to Michaels and bought some acrylic in white, black, and lavendar to get started (I figure it's for me, so I can cheap out on yarn if I want). I am going to do stripes in scrap yarn, but a ripple large enough to cover my bed is likely going to use several colors of scrap before I'm done with it. The new colors are so I can work stripes between the scrap colors that will hopefully bring the whole ripple together, as well as tie it in with the color scheme of my bedroom.

I began the ripple with the new colors last night:

Memories Ripple 1

The next stripe will be one of my scrap colors, just as soon as I figure out which one I want to use first!

Selena, that is going to be a wonderful addition to your bedroom! Especially fun b/c you will add in scraps with memories! I used that same technique to tie my scrappy ripple together, too! good luck and keep us up to date :)

Oooo, love your main colours! What a great idea. Pretty pattern, too. Can't wait to see it with some of the scrappy colours.
