To Make: Sample Afghan

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.

And all around the edge of the afghan will be 68 knit blocks of the below color.
Right now I’m able to knit 1 block a day.  In total I have to knit 320 blocks, this afghan is going to take me quite a while.
