New knitter attempting to complete the afghan before Christmas 2007....

Hi All,

I am relatively new to knitting, and I am teaching myself as I go along. I find that the videos on www.knittinghelp.com to be invaluable. I just finished my fourth square today - The Carol Adam's square. I had great difficulty making the gauge on this one and had to add an additional diamond pattern. Actually ripped it out more times than I care to mention. Has anyone else had trouble with the gauges on the squares? I am going to attempt to do one of the squares that require a circular needle. I've never worked with circular needles before, so wish me luck. My goal is to complete the afghan for a Christmas present (yes, this year!) Is it doable? I'll post photos after I block them.

Best,

Bonnie
