Stashbuster sampler afghan...
Thanks to those who gave feedback in the Crochet Forum.

Wanted to divest myself of various accumulated acrylics in my stash so grabbed my stitch dictionaries and my fave sz 7 10" sticks. Adjusted gauge for stitch pattern and yarn weight. I am pleased with the uniformity of the sqs as I've mentioned to some I did a baby blanket early last year and, not thinking, did alphabet sqs in diff colors of same brand of yarn only to realize...after the fact...that the gauge varied widely. :(

Tobinknit, it made for easy work seeing as I'm usually doing sweaters. Doing a stitch pattern over such a small area was quick and fun.

Slim, I've recently started recycling thrift store sweaters, all cotton (no more acrylic!), and was needing to find a way to make room for the new stuff. Fig'd an afghan would help in that regard. :)
