Raspberry Ripple

Firstly I would just like to say THANK YOU all so much for your lovely comments about my Flowery Circle ~ I was overwhelmed by all the Flowery Circle love that you sent my way :O) xxx

Yippee!! I can't quite believe it ~ I have at long last finished my little girl's Raspberry Ripple Scarf. It was supposed to have been finished in time for Christmas! But it didn't quite make it as a Christmas pressie!! However......... Here it is now in all it's beautiful pink berrylicious glory.


My little girl loved my Watery Ripple Scarf so much that she asked if I could possibly make her a pink girly one. I have to admit that when she picked out the colours that she wanted I wasn't that sure that they actually blended that well together. However ~ now that it is finally finished ~ I am pleased with the way the colours look and she is absolutely delighted with her very warm and very cozy Raspberry Ripple Scarf.


Once again, I used the very lovely Attic 24 Neat Ripple Pattern and Rowan Pure Wool DK in the following pinky berrylicious colours::

Tea Rose 025

Hyacinth 026

Raspberry 028

There are 59 lovely pink ripply rows which were an absolute pleasure to crochet ~ I LOVE rippling away! Unfortunately to go along with those pretty little ripply rows there were 118 horrible little ripply ends that needed to be sewed in. WHY did I do my usual and leave them all to do at the end?


Still......... there is something strangely satisfying about seeing a growing pile of little ends that have been sewn in and snipped off and I just love seeing all the little end bits sitting in a colourful little pile too :O)x

I've had people ask me to knit things with certain colours and I've thought UGH, but on seeing the finished item have been very pleasantly surprised . Looks like your daughter has an eye for colour as it is very pretty :-)

So pretty! I love the look of Lucy's ripple pattern but haven't been brave enough to start a blanket in it (WAAAAY too many unfinished projects already!) Now I've seen your ripple scarf I have GOT TO make one!

I think the colours go very nicely together. I too like to see the little pile of snipped off ends and, haha, I actually save them just in case they come in useful one day! How sad is that?
