No problem, there are things we have to take care of in our Dailey lives..what a wonderful thing you are doing, I'm sure they are appreciated, your husband is on chemo, I wish him well in his recovery..the ombré yarn I'm guessing is more expensive, if I had a special request to make one for someone I would definatley invest in getting it, I have so much left over yarn, I'm trying to use up whenever I get in the mood again, what are all the patterns you have made, the ripple was the first afghan I learned to make, I like maki g the c2c it goes pretty fast, mileaminute goes fast too.
Thank you! The Ombre is about $8 or $9 give or take around here and it is a much bigger skein, 10 oz., than the old kind. It averages out about the same price when you consider you're getting more per skein with the higher price. I have been stuck on doing the ripple and really haven't tried anything else. This one keeps me happy especially since I'm giving them to other people. Yes, they love them. I received so many hugs and the smiles on their faces made me ready to just go purchase more yarn and do it again! No, he passed away about 5 years ago. I started doing this while he was taking chemo. and it was a good pastime for me.
