My First Afghan in Progress....

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.
