Please contact me as to the following: Size of width and length of afghan CORRECT NUMBER of skeins for project-one reviewer said 4 skeins(10.5 oz) was insufficient. PLEASE email correct no. so I can purchase correct amount BEFORE beginning this project. Thank you. Shirley Krause cmu67@cs.com

I have started on this afghan and I love it - it's beautiful! I measured for gauge after I worked about 8" because size wasn't important as it isn't a garment. Well, let me tell you that 4 skeins of this year will not get you far. I originally ordered 5, and I am going to order about 10 more skeins. Two skeins barely got me to 8 inches. I'm on the third skein of yarn and have maybe 8 1/2" and am going to order 10 more skeins. The person who said this afghan can be made with 4 skeins must have been making a scarf! Has anyone else found this to be true?

I have been looking for something like this pattern. I will strat it as soon as I get the yarn. I have made jackets, shaws, and other things. I really like knitting it relaxes me. I use to quilt and still love to, but can't cause of my back. However, I want to strat doing one that I can do a block at a time. If I can find a pattern for one to do I will. I keep these emails so I can go back to them. Thank you so very much for having this crafts for people like me. I am a shutin handicaped person in a wheelchair and I enjoy doing crafts. God Bless you.
