Magic Scrap Ball Ripple Lap Blanket - Scraps

| 1 Comment

Size: 36 inches x 48 inches
Colors: Magic Scrap Ball
Pattern: At least 3 ripple styles
Hook: I
Date: start Dec. 28, 2005; put aside after a while; continued Nov. 8, 2006; finish Nov. 12)

I started this lap blanket in December last year and when the Magic Scrap Ball* ran out, I put it aside until more scraps had accumulated. I continued working on it last month and finished it a few days later. I didn't realize that I had started the blanket using one ripple pattern, did some rows in the middle using a different ripple pattern, and than continued at the end using yet a third pattern. The pattern changes are not obvious, and even if they were, they make the blanket more unique!

* A Magic Scrap Ball is a ball of yarn created by joining together (with knots or not depending on your philosophy of using knotted yarn) a variety of lengths of yarn scraps. For best results (depending on the project), the yarn scraps should be similar in thickness and use the same material (such as all acrylic or all wool) or the material should all be washable (or be sure to only hand wash the completed project). At each join, leave a 4- to 6-inch length of yarn tail to be weaved in.

I have about three large storage totes of leftover yarn and have already made one huge afghan fron Bev's Old Blanket pattern (dc throughout), totally pretty! Then I came across yours! Thank you for another inspiration! Whatever pattern you used looks so huggable! Sometimes the simplest ideas elude me, so I appreciate inspiration from others! Knots are not a problem for me, but keeping my afghans for me is. oh well, everyone loves a cozy blanket!
