Hi folks. I was looking for help when I discovered this blog, thanks to Google!
I'm knitting the GAAA in Red Heart denim tweed. I had mixed feeling about using such an inexpensive yarn, but the price tag for better yarn straightened me out. The afghan is a gift for my granddaughter. She adores denim, which is why I chose that yarn.
There are a few squares that I didn't do. I didn't like the square with the little sweater, I thought it was gimmicky. I have about 16 squares completed, saved the hardest for last.
I'm now stymied in Kathleen Carty. I've finished the mitered border and am trying to get up the nerve to—for the 4th time—try the graft. Maybe it's too small for my middle-aged eyes. The diagram in the book looks harmless, but I completely get lost soon after I begin and end up tearing it out again. I also thought about starting with the all-knit cable section in the middle, then working out from the center. Does anyone have a tip for doing this?
