James' Afgan

James' Blanket

This blanket belongs to my youngest son.  I knit it while I was pregnant with my youngest daughter, but since she was not a  boy, I stored it away in hopes that I would be pregnant with a boy again soon.  And I was! 

     At the time I belonged to a knitting group that met every Monday for 1-1/2 hours.  We would have a "class" for the younger members, then knit (or crochet) our hearts out!  It was great fun, and such a relaxing time.  I would wait for my 15-year-old to get home from school, then leave all the little kids with her.  I didn't get much time by myself, so it was very relaxing.  And I couldn't believe all the projects I got done in that time. 

     This blanket is knitted from a two-ply yarn which is very soft.  It's not very heavy, but it makes a great bunting.  The navy blue and tan are nice neutral colors that go with almost anything.  There is a garter stitch border, and cables going up each "block", although the whole blanket is knit in one piece.  I love to knit blankets in the winter because our family room is rather cool.

Fisherman's Sweater
I knitted this sweater in only a few weeks – that was before I had children. I was moving to Tacoma, Washington, so I thought I should have a fisherman’s sweater. This one was particularly complicated, which is why I liked it...
