Striped blankets

Over on Bella Dia's blog she has been talking about striped blankets and the like; she also has a flickr group. So here are the three in my house. Two are from my husband's grandmothers. They where both wedding gifts.

The top multi-colored wool one actually won 1st price at his grandmother's county fair in Lincoln County, Nevada; pretty cool. update free pattern for this .I have the ribbon on the wall in my bedroom, his grandfather gave it to us two years ago so it could stay with the afghan. That one was from his maternal grandmother, very prized possession as she is in heaven and was a lovely lady.

From his fraternal grandmother we received the blue on blue one; it is acrylic. She loved crocheting and belonged to a needle arts group. Also a very nice lady, now in her mid 90's.

The last one I started about three years ago as a gift for my husband, multi-color on bottom acrylic. At the moment it works great as a sofa blanket; it's long enough not to have a war. In time I want it to fit our king size bed; it has a ways to go on that.


  1. Those are beautiful, and such nice pieces to have. We don't have any with stripes! Perhaps I need to make one.

  2. The bottom one reminds me of ones my grandma used to make..they are sure heavy and warm. I still have one...it has a different stitch but just as heavy.

  3. I LOVE that prize-winning afghan! I am going to try and make one like that, I love multicolored yarns and never have enough ideas on what to do with them... Okay, so if I saw the pic right, I could do 3 rows of solid, 3 multi, 3 solid, 1 black, 1 white, 1 black, then repeat, right? It has a Mexican serape(?) look to it... could vary stitch pattern for fun. Thanks, and the pics are gorgeous!!
