Barbara Walker Learn To Knit Afghan Project

Several years ago we built a wonderful addition onto our log cabin (which Dear One had built in 1972/73) so we could have all the major necessities on the main floor.  It is a beautiful and warm addition and includes a new couch in the upstairs great room.

Because all couches need afghans to place across the back for whenever someone wants to drop down and take a quick nap, I decided it was time to make a new afghan. I had been in Rutland one day on my way home from dropping off Dear One for a hiking trip and lo, and behold! there was a yarn shop, and it was OPEN!  What could I do but pull into the driveway and enter the store with an open mind!

As I was looking through the books on sale, I found Barbara Walker's Learn To Knit Afghan Book.  It cost the amount of money that I had in my pocket so it was meant to be, right?!  When I got it home I discovered that there are sixty-three different blocks which teach you many different stitches and principles of knitting. I shall have fun knitting up the squares and turning them into an afghan--though the sewing together afterwards may be somewhat of a bear...
