~Day 2 of my 30 days of blogging~Lacy V-Stitch Ripple Afghan, pattern by Mama’s Stitchery Projects
A friend is expecting her first baby, so I made her this lovely afghan based on her nursery colors. (Can you tell it’s a girl?) A. is a college friend’s little sister, so I have known her since she was about 10yo. She’s the closest thing to a little sister I’ve had. I got stuck with a little brother. 😛
Normally I go with a large granny-square for baby afghans, but decided to break out & try a ripple. I had this pinned, so it serves to both make a lovely gift & prove that people actually do something with the things they pin!
The yarns I used are all Red Heart Super Saver: perfect pink, soft white, & spring green. I found it odd that each color had a different level of softness, even though they are the same yarn. The green was the softest & the white was the stiffest. That leaves pink floating somewhere in the middle, closer to green than white. All in all, I was very pleased with my yarn choices. I’m going to wash it before shipping it off, so it should be even softer.
I like a lot of pics when I’m looking at a pattern, so I have included a few more of mine behind the cut.
