Afghans, Blankets & Throws

Snuggling Up and Turning Pages

Now that it’s like this outside… I’m getting a lot of use out of my Page Turner Throw!   The throw, made Quince & Co.’s gorgeous Lark, is holding up really well. I love snuggling up in this as a plan my next few projects. One that I can tell you about involves kitties….lots and lots of kitties at the local shelter. They …

Two New Patterns for Fall

My newest patterns explore texture. ——————————————— Featuring twisted stitches and winding cables, Emmalina provides plenty of variety to keep the knitting interesting. The pattern uses sport weight yarn, shown here in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Baby.   Knitters will appreciate little details like cables that grow out of the ribbing, and the flower design formed by the crown’s clever decreases.     Emmalina …

Girasole

Girasole. One of my favorite patterns to make – ever. It’s really quite easy to knit – it only looks complicated.  Mine is the blanket size, about 67″ across. I used Cascade Pastazafor this project. It’s pretty hefty stuff, with 50% llama and 50% wool, but that’s just right for a large lacey blanket. If you’re considering using Pastaza, be forewarned …

Girasole’s Seventh Inning Stretch

Last time you saw Girasole, it had just been started.   My, how it has grown! If I had to write another one of those “What Does Summer Mean To You” essays for grade school, I’d now say baseball and knitting blankets. Blankets? I know, the last thing on most knitters’ list of summer projects is a big heavy blanket. …

Brooklyn Tweed Projects

Toward the end of November I found myself  home in California (finally!) long enough to take two classes from Jared Flood, also known in the knitting community as Brooklyn Tweed. Besides Thanksgiving, Jared was one of the reasons I came back from Ohio at all. (Don’t tell him that – he’ll think I’m stalking him or something.) Jared was hosted by …

196, But Who’s Counting?

196 mitered squares and 26 balls of Boku later, and the Make It Mitered Afghan is finally done! All I can say is, I’m really glad I wove in all those ends as I went along. Let’s see, 196 squares times 2 ends each, plus 2 ends each ball of yarn, plus a couple for the crochet edge and we’re talking …

Major League Afghan

I’m on the home stretch of my Make It Mitered Afghan (from Creative Knitting, November 2007). This is the project I like to work on while keeping my husband company during baseball season. I serenely knit while he yells at the television.  If this picture makes the project look interminable, that’s because it is. I started it in December 2007. …
