Hello everyone. Another hot, humid day here in the Chicago area. It's 92F (33C) and very humid, a perfect time to think of knitting something warm and cozy for winter!
The afghan is starting to take shape now that it is 40% finished. I have included some photos so you could have a size comparison. Enjoy.
I have finished 11,900 stitches and it measures about a foot. It should grow to between 5 and 6 feet when it is finished, depending on when I run out of yarn.
Since I am in the middle of a couple big projects, I decided that I would leave the knitting paraphernalia at home this time. It'll give my fingers a good rest.
I know it's only been 10 rows ago that I posted, but I'm proud of this afghan. It has been a real learning experience. It's starting to take shape nicely and only 16 rows until I am 20% done. Enjoy.
I found this site today and it is full of good videos. Enjoy.
It's been a struggle to trust the pattern on this one, but true to the advice I have gotten from so many, the pattern is proving to be perfect.
