New to the KAL

I've only just discovered the GAAA book but I'm already hooked. These are my first two squares, knit in Cascade 220 (Oatmeal) with 5mm KnitPicks Options needles. I'm halfway through an afghan for my aunty for Christmas, so I'm going to add these two squares (and a few more) to it.

Now to decide which one to knit next. ;0)

For those of you on, are you listing GAAA as one project or each square as a separate project?

I'm already on my third square! I'm in no rush because there's no deadline (I'm making this to keep). I'll probably get mine done around 2010 if I keep up at this rate :)

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 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.
