Several months–and many books later–I’m steadily knitting and purling my way towards the end of my afghan. It’s been a new challenge for me, because it’s been years since I tried following a pattern. The projects I normally did in the past were scarves, where I would knit a row, and then purl a row. At the very least, this made very good at purling and knitting. I was more than happy to take on this project, because it alternates between knitting and purling.
My current knitting project that I’ve taken up is knitting an Afghan. I’m using the moss stitch, which is where you knit one, then purl one for two rows before switching to purl one, knit one for the next two rows.
It’s been a long time since I’ve tried following an actual pattern, but so far, I’m loving it! I enjoy reading/listening to music or my audiobook while working on my Afghan.
I have almost finished the first of four skeins of yarn. I love watching my Afghan take shape. I’m very proud of myself!
