I am another new member to the group. I haven't started on the GAAA yet because I am busy finishing my second afghan now. It is also a sampler afghan whose pattern was from Family Circle Easy Afghan. However, I have already decided to use Lion Brand Wool-Ease for GAAA because of its price and easy care ... and also I don't have to keep the stash at home. I can just go to Jo-Ann or Michael's when I run out of yarns! :)
You can have a look at the afghan I am working on now here. Once I start on the GAAA I'll post again. Thanks.
