"JAZZ"

Are you a fan of the Utah Jazz, My brother in law is and so for his Christmas present I made him a "Jazz" Blanket. It took some time designing the pattern and then it took around three months to make it. After loads of frustration and undoing it millions of times, I finally got it finished. On Christmas morning when he opened his present he was really happy and surprised. It made my heart sing knowing that I was able to make him something that he is going to love.

Very nice blanket! For some reason I can't see any of the words in this post... as if the writing is black on black. Could it be? Anyway, lovely stitching!

Hi - My mom used to make beautiful blankets like the one you made. I never did pick up that talent. I also get all choked up when I watch the Macy's T-Day parade. I used to work there when I was in college and even was in it in 1979. It was fun - and so is SITs.

I love knitting gifts! My two littlest guys LOVE the blankets I knit them. And scarves - why they're knitted hugs. What an amazing blanket! Knitting or crochetting is definitely a heart activity!
