I am actually doing this on another site, well I have not started yet, but will soon. Some of you have already done some of the patterns, but some of us have not. This is a book that in my opinion can result in a lot of discussion and participation in this group. I know that SOme of you have made some of these Squares. The Learn to KNit Afghan Book By Barbara G. Walker is a great opportunity to have New and experienced Knitters create something of use that maybe we can donate to a local charity or we can make as a gift for a loved one. Let's hear it. It is a wonderful opportunity to also learn basic crochet if you llike and you can use left over yarn.

would love to, but I've got too many project on needles and in the queue. Next time, guys!

Same here....but I'm perfectly willing to kibitz and comment and cheer, and applaud!

Andy, is it a knit AND crochet project??

Visit Crafty Andy's Blog No it is a Knit ALong that has the option of having a crochet border around the squares that you will be knitting, but there need not to be any crochet at all. It does teach the most basic crochet I guess, I am reading the book as I go. I hope I answered your question!

I started this about three years ago then put it up, unfinished...would love an excuse to haul it back out and finish it! I have all the yarn and everything. If there's a group, count me in!

Dang. I just knit this book last year. I actually still need to finish seaming it all up. I found that it really increased my skills and confidence level with many different types of knitting - lace, cables, slip-stitch, color. Hmmm maybe I should consider another one with a new color scheme.

Would one need to buy the book for this knit-along? Sounds like fun... but I haven't seen the project and I'm curious what I'd be getting into...

Here is a Ravelry Link with more info on the afghan. I would say you would have to buy the book.

Hi Andy,
CAn you give me an idea of what the afghan looks like / I need to do an afghan for my partner's son and his wife, this might work. But I would not want to commit to doing the knit along until I knew what we were doing.

Thanks for the invitation. I would love to do it but time and skill don't permit. I'll finish off my current stuff and post them... I certainly do want to do one one day. I need to make one for my dog, he needs a doggy blanket... but not just yet. I need to practise doing stuff I have already done so I feel a little more confident.

I responded "no" but might be interested if it's something really cool. I will check the Amazon link or other and see what it is. Right now I have so many projects going on it's hard to know which to work on in what few spare minutes I have, which to smuggle into work on what day...

Another mistaken send. If someone can delete these please do. I will go out for my morning run next time before I start playing with questions.

Nashrunner's picture

Another bad hit on the send button. Is there any way to completely delete? Sorry

Nashrunner's picture

Oops, I hit the send button too many times! Sorry

I came home with this book from the library early in the week because it looked interesting. I hadn't yet made a decision to start the project...but now I have.

...just chalk it up to timing...I have to complete my auction stuff.
