I finished knitting my first afghan in November. I gave it to my mom. She is very forgiving of all my mistakes. I definately got better as I went.

I'll try to post this pic again. I got the pattern from the Leisure Arts (little book) called "Beginner's Guide KNIT STITCHES & Easy Projects.

That's beautiful! It sure does not look like your first! My first did not even have straight edges on the sides... yours is really wonderful! Congratulations!
Your afghan is beautiful. You did a great job.
