A while back I found a beginner knitting project which seemed right up my alley. You knit sample patches, 5″x5″, and you knit a whole bunch of them. You use these little ‘blocks’ to practice your knitting technique on these blocks, just doing the same stitch over and over again.
Then when I laid out my project, and I decided to make it a queen sized afghan. Perhaps that may have been a bit of a mistake. I was hoping this would be a project that would show me results fast. I figured that the little 5″x5″ blocks would be satisfying enough for me to keep going.
Yesterday I laid out my pattern, and I realized just what I’m in store for.
I have to knit 63 blocks of each of the colors below.
