Donna's Afghans

My favorite knitting project was the anniversary afghan I knitted for my husband.  I had the project hidden at work and used my lunch hours to complete it.  This took me months but he was soo excited.  He used it and still does while watching football.  Every stitch was a thought of him!

This afghan was knitted using two held strands of Plymouth encore.  Heavy project once it gets going!  Funny too that the pattern was called "anniversary afghan."





This beautiful layette wasn't made for a princess, but one lucky baby will look like royalty in this gorgeous layette made with Deborah Norville Sport Weight (#2) yarn.

I gasped when I opened the attached photo in the email I received from Kathy S.   What a spectacular baby layette! 

This work of art was handmade by Kathy in Deborah Norville Sport Weight (#2) yarn in pearly white.  Incredibly, Kathy gave this to her friend who presented it to her new granddaughter!  What a family heirloom this is destined to become! 

Kudos to Kathy -- both for her needlework prowess and her generosity.  AND -- I want to thank her for her persistence in locating Deborah Norville yarn for her project.  She wrote and said she'd heard about it but had a hard time locating it.  Eventually she told me she found it at Annie's Attic.    Here's what she said, "I must say your yarn was really nice to work with-- originally I had tried Patons yarn and it was like working with mill end yarn.  Please try and have more stores carry your yarn.  Thanks again for your help." 

Thank YOU Kathy for your kind words!  You can also find DN Yarn at other stores as well as online from the manufacturer, Premier Yarns.  In exchange, I am sending you an autographed copy of my book of knitting patterns, "Knit with Deborah Norville."  Happy stitching!


Shanda Hester is a high school French teacher, who despite juggling a job, long commute, two girls with one on the way, STILL manages to find time to knit for others. She's made these two bears in DN Serenity Chunky to give to her local hospital. (Funny but she made bears in the same shades I made some afghans!) Shanda, you rock! Click HERE for the bear pattern.

Funny coincidence, but I have used the exact same shades of yarn to make afghans for my two sons!  Great minds think alike!  :)
