look what I found

I was working on the charger for the battery to my camera, again, and found these in the memory of the camera.

Pictures of the afghan I made for my brother! 

My brother was watching me knit one evening at my sister's while we were settling her estate.  He said he liked how the afghan was turning out and who was I making it for.  I said nobody, in particular, would he like it.  He kind of thought I was joking.  So we discussed how long to make it.  He wanted it long enough to go over his head and tuck under his heels.

So it ended up the usual 48 inches wide but is 96 inches long.  I used Frankie Brown's Ten Stitch Blanket pattern on Ravelry, instead of 10 stitches, I used 20 stitches.  Knitted it on US#6 needles.  I then added the mitered corner blocks at each end to get the additional length I need before adding the 2 borders I had planned on.

I have other projects finished so maybe I will have something positive to upload.

Y'all have a good day!

How neat that he was interested and liked it! How neat that you found the photos!

Cool afghan!! I wish I knew how to knit, but I never learned and do not have the time or patience to teach myself.

Have a great day!

My sister and I went to the local yarn shop and took a beginning knitting class. Some of the best money spent! Once the process was demonstrated and explained I was off and running. You-tube filled in all the blanks when I was curious to learn a new technique.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment!

He was surprised I didn't have someone in mind, that I was just stash busting and trying something new. I didn't remember taking the photos. I finally got enough patience to pull the camera and charger out to deal with the charger problems.

Good to see you posting again. I like the afghan, and I need to do some stash busting myself. I am again on my computer so I can comment. I can't comment from my phone for some reason, and that is how I usually read the blogs. I'm working on another sweater, and learning new techniques as I go.

It was nice to post and it be positive. Looking forward to the new sweater.
