Project Little Lambs

3 Kittens Needle Arts has sponsored Project Little Lambs, which is sponsored by Cornerstone, whose mission is to prevent domestic abuse by providing services to adults and children that help build sustainable self-reliance and revive the human spirit in the face of domestic violence.

3 Kittens set a goal of 50 baby blankets by Aug. 1st.
Below is my first contribution.

It took me awhile to get this going, I reviewed my stash, I collect yarn that met the washable criteria, after looking at what I selected I was sure that these colors would not go together. But after starting a very simple repeating ripple, changing colors every 2 rows, I was pleasantly surprised. I love how this turned out. There is some pink Ella Rae Amity, orange Bernat Satin, a little bit of teal and lime green Caron’s Simply Soft, peach Reynolds’s Utopia and other yarn that I have no idea where its from or what it is. (I'm lucky to have inherited some yarn recently.) Then after I was done, I found a lonesome tiny ball of fluffy white yarn which added the perfect boarder (with only an inch to spare!)

My little 'ripple rainbow', hopefully it will provide a little comfort to someone in need.
