Just wanted to introduce myself and say hello! I'm Sarah and my blog is called Knitting Addiction.
I just got my copy of the book in the mail yesterday and I'm eager to start! I'm going to be using Knitpick's Merino Style in vanilla. Yeah, I know, it's a dk weight yarn BUT I really want something softer without spending an arm and a leg. I've had a great experience with their yarns. Course, if this doesn't work out, I can try the Encore. It's just not quite as soft as I'd like for an afghan. :)
Anyway, that'll be my great experiment. The various aran squares in there look amazing and the finished afghan is just awe inspiring. I look forward to sharing my knitting with you all!
(It may well take me a while--I'm an ADD sort of knitter....always another project.)
