Here is what I have been working on for my aran afghan. Thanks to a comment left by Sheepish One I checked out the DIY network web page and found this. Here is what I have knit thus far.
It is the Moss Diamond Cable Afghan Square and it takes a lot of concentration. So in addition to this little project I need something that is a little more mindless if you know what I mean.
Back when I first learned to knit and purl I thought, "hey this isn't so bad, maybe I'll just whip up a sweater." Mind you at this point I knew next to nothing about knitting, yarn, patterns, what have you. I promptly went to the store and purchased this yarn (I have more than one).Patons Classic Merino 100% Wool
I have now been holding onto this yarn for about two years and I don't know what to do with it. I still have yet to make anything for myself. I would like to make a cardigan or a simple pullover. Nothing fancy just something that will fit. The yarn is kind of stiff but I like the color so...Any suggestions?
