I have never ever attempted to do a knitted afghan before. The pattern was from an old Leisure Art leaflet from...get this....1974!!!!!!! It's called the Classic Ripple Afghan. I have knitted Leisure Art models for the last five years (mostly small projects like socks, scarves, etc.) and was asked to crochet an afghan using Red Heart Soft yarn. Turns out the yarn colors matched exactly to a runner I have in my living room (Blanket Pic 3), so it occurred to me that I should knit an afghan for myself using those same colors. Crochet is really not my thing.
Are there ANY other male knitters besides myself in Little Rock, AR????
Here is a link to an abcnews.com story regarding knitting in this current economic situation. http://abcnews.go.com/Video/playerIndex?id=6805423
Thought I would share one of my scarf projects.
