- The seventies
- I had most of the colors. But I had to buy one more color (dark purple, on its way) and more of the light blue and green. The original idea was to save money since I had the dark blue already. I ended up spending a fortune.
- I love projects that are in squares or other units, because you can get a sense of completion over and over again.
- The biggest factor: I saw two real life examples of this afghan made by Diane and they were beautiful, much more so than the picture on the cover. There are some extreme beauties on the Ravelry page as well. As usual, I like the ones made of many uncoordinated colors less and the coordinated ones more. Props to the Scarlet Knitter for her beautiful coordinated version which is used to illustrate the project.
So there you have it. I figure this can be a long term project with a square made every now and then. Of course I have been neglecting everything else the last day or two to knit squares. The one below is already finished and another one started. I've always been a fool for basketweave.
