I had a lot of fun making the hat and scarf I am giving my wife for Christmas. I used #13 needles and a nice wool/acrylic blend...washable! I am now looking for an afghan to make. Does anyone know of a relatively easy one to make? I have found a few online, but find that they are either painfully boring, or very difficult. I'm still just a beginner, but willing to work at learning some new skills without frying my brain! Any suggestions?
