My enormous afghan

I just thought I would post something about my favorite afghan.  This is probably one of the most convincing reasons people should check gauge before knitting, however despite my grievous error, I love the results.  This blanket suits our family perfectly in spite of its crazy dimensions.  This afghan measures approximately 4 ft by 6 ft, the longer being the width.  This is a favorite for the kids because no one gets left out on the couch, no need to worry it covers everyone’s laps.  My husband, who is over 6 ft tall, likes to lay under because it actually covers his tall frame.  My least favorite part, has nothing to do with the blanket itself, as much as how difficult the last foot was to knit due to the weight of this wool blanket.  I think I like it all the more, because of the perseverance it required to finish.

Baby Blanket Bliss

I couldn’t resist.  I started yet another project.  I had to….it was calling me.  It has been too long since I have knitted a baby blanket and this yarn and this lace pattern are working out beautifully.  Please bear with me, as the photo does not do justice to what I am sure the finished product will look like.  Maybe I am just a little over confident, probably from the knitting-high of starting a new project, not just any project, but a lace one.   I am sure once it is blocked it will be gorgeous, of course, I will probably have no time to post a picture of the perfect masterpiece.  (convenient, don’t you think?)  I will give a taste of my new lace baby blanket.  I am sure I will finish this one soon, unlike the 1/3 done baby blanket it my knitting basket.  Well, now that I’ve given my fingers a stretch typing, it’s time to get back to my knitting.
