The Great American Aran Afghan
Do you get yourself a birthday gift? YOU SHOULD! This year, I went for The Great American Aran Afghan book and yarn. I'm knitting it out of a sport weight yarn instead of worsted, so I might want to scream before it is all over, but I couldn't resist the Madelinetosh yarn deal I found.
This will be a multi-year project as I plan to do a block a month for 20 blocks. I started with a middle of the road level block. It isn't particularly difficult, but you do have to pay attention and be migraine free! The lovely silk/merino/cashmere blend is like working with heaven.
