A Blanket Knit to keep me Cozy

January is the perfect month to finish a cozy blanket to cover me while I read.  This one has been on my knitting needles since last Fall and I finished it yesterday.

Once again I turned to my favorite knitting patterns in the Plymouth Yarn #638 Done by Monday Afghans book.  These blankets are a breeze to knit.  I used my Size 13 Addi Turbo 32 inch circular needles and 10 balls of Encore Worsted Yarn.  For this afghan, I used one strand of Plymouth Encore Colorspun No. 7402, a white yarn with specks of blue and yellow and one strand of solid white held together.

The  pattern is Boxes Afghan #4.  Here's a close up of the stitch pattern and I think you can see the slight specks of color.

This yarn was in my stash and so I've again changed my stash yarn into a wonderful and useful project.  I purchased this yarn several years ago on a day trip to visit a yarn store that was close to the Beach.  It was a beautiful day for a ride and I always enjoy exploring different yarn stores.


 




And just to share a beautiful flower.  Here's my Amaryllis in Bloom.  This plant has 4 blossoms growing from one stem.




I didn't know that it was possible for more than one blossom to grow on a single stem.  Maybe it's a Special Sign of something wonderful on the horizon.
