This colourful afghan lives on my chair from November through to Spring, whenever that is. I crocheted it a couple of years ago. That was the last time I fell off the knitting wagon. It is a pattern that I made many years ago (probably 25 - 30 years ago) I cannot even remember just how many I made, but, plenty as everyone at work wanted one and so did my dad. He liked his so much that he cajoled me into making one for his neighbour as well, as a thank you for their kindness.
This green one is the one that I made for him many years ago, he kept it on his couch until he moved on to a retirement home and then it lived on his bed until he passed away ten years ago, I welcomed it back into my arms and still display it on Jerry's chair each winter. The pattern is somewhere in my stash of books and old patterns but I just play it by ear, it is real easy to play around with different colour widths and plaid layout, I think it would also be nice in one colour, kind of like a woven blanket. Maybe I will try that some day. Also along with the green (he was Irish) I also gave a loving home to Vanilla, his polar teddy bear. Vanilla now resides as one of my baby bears in a basket in full view when I am on the computer. Vanilla, Butterscotch and Chocolate enjoy wearing some of my creative knitting.
Now for my work in progress. I am a denim freak, I would live in my Jeans and Denim shirt if I was allowed. Thank goodness we do have a jean friday policy at work. That helps. So, I decided to use a big bag of Bernat Denimstyle yarn and make a plaid afghan, why not? I am still working on my baby sweaters, baby blanket and for the moment have abandoned my size 2 mm dbl points and my super fine sock yarn.
