My first afghan
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!
