I’m listing each block of the Jubilee Afghan separately on Ravelry as each is enough work to call it a project.

This is the first block I’m knitting for the Jubilee Throw. Techniques include fairisle and intarsia. This block is a variation of the patterning of the Box Star Jacket from Rowan #1 (called The Rowan Knitting Book back then).

On January 18th I did a few rows as a swatch to see if I liked the fabric, then set it aside and started again on Day 2 of the Olympic games. I penalized myself one day (Day 1) to make up for the rows I did as a swatch. This is my Ravellenic Games project. I’m in the Rowan Love group.

02.18.2014 - The second picture show the block at the halfway point…pinned by unblocked. The size at this point is 21” x 6”.

02.22.2014- Finished the knitting on the second last day of the Sochi Olympics. All the ends are woven in and the it’s on the blocking board as I type this. Gold medal for Joanne!
