Introducing myself :)

Hello :)
My name is Gabi, and I'm living in Australia with my husband, 2 daughters and couple of critters. Recently I picked up my knitting needles again after long long years of not knitting to start this afghan. Fell totally in love with this Aran afghan when seeing some fellow stitchers starting it.
And I deeply enjoy knitting these squares. My plan is to knit all 24 squares of the book.
The wool I chose is called Luxury from the Bendigo Woollen Mills - a soft pure wool.

3 squares are already done: Ginette Belanger, Barbara Selesnick and Hanna Burns.

Great American Aran Afghan

I have been dying to knit this afghan for a long time and am so happy to have finally started it. Here are the first two squares. Vicky Sever and Suzanne Atkinson and I'm planning to knit it twice. Once as a surprise for DD and once for me. Might as well knit two squares as I go along (you know... before I forget everything). ;) Needless to say, I'll be hanging around in here a lot.
