Cheerful, Creative, Crocheter and Collector of all things Colorful describes me to a C--er, I mean a T. My sweet, left-handed granny taught me (a righty) to crochet when I was but a youngster. My first project was a hideously long scarf for my dad. It seems I just didn't know when to stop--something my teachers told me in school, too! Although crochet and other craftiness have always been part of my life, I channeled my energy and creativity into teaching Jr. High and High School sciences for many years.
When I am not "yarning" (as described by my youngest), I treasure time with my family, friends, running, thrift store shopping, and learning new creative skills.

Inspired by the ombre cakes, hair and tights seen everywhere these days, I made this flowy, feminine and fun blanket. The Ombre Ruffle will keep you or your little one warm and cozy! Its dip-dyed color effect can be worked up in any colors of your choice--I envision it in shades of white to aqua, or whites to creams to yellows. Each tier could even be colored like a rainbow!
This 4 page pattern contains simple and clear instructions with several pictures to help you easily join your ruffle to the blanket. A simple project for even a beginner.
It specifies the 6 yarns I used, but you can work it up in any colors you choose to match your home or nursery decor.
