About Me

My photo
I am 45. I am married to the love of my life. Together we have two beautiful young adults who bring me joy everyday. In 2015 we added another beautiful young adult to our house, our niece, and she has been a great joy! Secretly, I'm counting the years till grandbabies start coming; they just need to find their forever loves first.

Current WIP

Working on a football afghan as a gift for my kids' algebra tutor. This good man has met with my kids every week for more than 6 months without ever asking for a thing from us. Just want to bless him back. His favorite team is Alabama Crimson Tide, hence the color choice.

This is a cool project. And very thoughtful of you!
I am working on a baby afghan for a new little guy in my daughter's workplace. Keeping it simple because she wanted it to give "yesterday." LOL!
Hope all is going well for you there in the Sunshine state. Still cool here in the Midwest and rainy. Still lovin' your blog!

Love this! Anyway you'd be willing to sell the pattern to me? I cant seem to find anywhere online that still has the pattern! Thanks!

Where can I find this pattern?? I have been looking for it and I can't find it. I would love to have this while sitting the sidelines watching my oldest son play football.

I have desperately searched the internet for this football afghan pattern with no success. I also looked for the original publication willing to buy it with again no success. Any suggestions where I can find this pattern to purchase? Any help is greatly appreciate :)

Hi all. I will address all of the pattern questions in this post. My advice is to look on Amazon.com and type in the name of the book in the search box. I have looked it up several times for different people and it's always there. Good luck!

ParisMcSweets said...

Thank you so much. I found it and will be ordering it soon. :)

Lindsey said...

I assume the book is the one in the last picture?? If so it is on the way to my house, too!

Do you know the finished size of the blanket?

Thanks for posting this pic- I was sent here (by a customer) from Pinterest! Congrats!

Hi Lindsey,
Yes the last picture is the book. I have never looked at what the final measurement says in the book and I've never measured mine. Sorry i can't help you there.

is there a pattern for the football blanket???

Keli Jo said...

Looked this book up on Amazon and its $114.37 as of the day of this post. I don't think I will be getting it. Maybe Ill try it by attempting to mimic it.

This pattern is available in Annie's Quick and Easy Crochet to Go," Aug/Sept 1998, Number 112 or Annie's Favorite Special Occasions Crochet Projects. The cheapest I've been able to find it is $40. I'm holding out for something a little more reasonable. Good luck! I'm hoping I get luck :)

I thought I had found the perfect Christmas gift for my grandson who plays center on his team but with the cheapest price $40 plus the cost of the yarn, he won't be getting this. Being retired and on a fixed income makes it impossible, especially with regular living expenses going up daily.

check out http://www.bonanza.com and search for Football Afghan Crochet Pattern Blanket there is one listed but it is over 25.00 dollars.

Vickie Bevens said...

I would like to make the football throw but where do I find the pattern? Thank you:)

Tonya Coleman said...

Book is a bit costly!

CJO'B said...

I looked up the book on Amazon.com, but I can't afford the price of the book. I saw a link on that same page (still on Amazon) to the Author's website and found this pattern on her Archived Patterns
