Anyone reading this still?
I'm new to the GAAA blog--just planning to start this project, as a potential wedding gift for a daughter not even engaged yet. I'm glad to have resources online written by those of you who have gone before me, as I'm sure I will wonder what I was thinking even starting this at times--your experience has already helped in my planning. I really appreciate the tips and trouble-shooting pointers so far. I am planning to use Jo Sharp's Classic Wool DK yarn in color Porcelain, and buying it from an Australian source, which turns out to be much less cost--believe it or not, some places our dollar trades advantageously! I am just finishing another sampler afghan (24 squares) using this yarn in a beautiful red shade, and I've loved the yarn. The "hand wash" part will be the kicker--any tips? The afghan is beautiful, I'm looking forward to starting. I noticed the last post was September '08, and I'm just wondering if you all still follow this, if you're all all done with the project, or what--would love to see more current info. but will spend some time catching up on all the old posts.
