Ripple me this…

A very good friend of mine was married a couple of weeks ago. I offered to make them a ripple blanket as their gift, since I knew she’d liked the others I’ve made and I’d just been waiting until I could see all of the Cascade 220 colors in person before I got started. I went to Webs this past week while Rob and I were gallivanting around New England and came up with a combination of three neutrals and nine colors that I like together.

I’m two stripes in and like it so far, so we’ll see…

In other project news, I’m a few inches short of the armhole on a Folded out of Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn that used to be a bright bubblegum pink, but I overdyed with a little bit of black. And I started a Milkweed Shawl with a random ball of tweedy Shetland that may or may not be enough to finish it. If not, I have enough black yarn of a similar gauge that will work. It’s a very easy project, but still requires enough attention to keep from getting too bored; I’m enjoying it.

Season two of Sherlock is on PBS tonight, which is pretty exciting news in this household, I have a big pot of green chili with pork and hominy ready to go–I should take a picture of it later and write up the recipe; it’s quick and delicious–and still have to knock out a freelance piece, run a couple of errands, and figure out what I’m wearing to my first day at the new job tomorrow(!) before I can relax for the night. On to it…

    Love the colors for the ripple blanket! Man, is that an act of love and awesome gift. Also, I’ve got a big can of hominy and want that recipe, and to hear about the new job. Hope you’re well, seems like it! xo H
