Finished in the nick of time. My boyfriend requested an afghan in his signature gray color and nothing lacey with holes in it. I printed the directions for the stitch pattern from a blog called Stitch In Time and made one repeat of the pattern and got his approval and then he forgot about it. I cast on 114 stitches, worked 7 rows of seed stitch, and then 7 stitches of seed stitch at the beginning of each row,worked the pattern and ended each row with 7 stitches of seed stitch for a border. I ended it with 7 rows of seed stitch. I used Lions Brand Woolspun which is a bulky yarn. He was completely surprised and thrilled today to receive it for his birthday. This link from Ravelry looks closest to what I made https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/quick-knit-basketweave-afghan Now if our temps will quit being over 95 degrees, he will get to enjoy using it!

I'm almost finished making an afghan for my boyfriend using that same stitch and color. I added a seed stitch border so the edge doesn't have the scalloped look that is caused as part of the pattern. He approved the pattern when I first started it and will unveil the finished product to him on his birthday in a couple weeks.

I just purchased The Sweater Workshop book by Jacqueline Fee because like you, I really want to make a sweater but have hesitated to get started. She starts you out by making a sampler that walks you through a multitude of techniques and stitches that you will run in to making different sweaters. It looks to be about the size of a sleeve so you learn a lot quickly. You might want to take a look at this. I found a used copy on Amazon. As soon as I finish the afghan I've been working on forever I plan to dive in!

Impressive feat! As a knitter I couldn't have pulled it off. My part time job is answering calls from people ordering from a TV shopping show. In between calls, I knit sitting at an L-shape desk set up. My right arm is usually supported on the desk and my left is supported by the arm of the chair and it is very comfortable. My issue is that I keep wearing holes in the elbow of the shirt that is on the desk all the time! I keep thinking I should take time from my other projects to make a protective sleeve but haven't made myself do it yet.

Tuesday Morning is dangerous! Always gorgeous, unusual and discounted yarns! I've also picked up odds and ends of needles and buttons. My only salvation is that my TM has quit carrying books because I never could resist discounted knitting books!

Sorry for the redundant pattern request. I didn't see the multiple pages at first!

Do you have a pattern link for this? I've been searching for one like this. I already started one with another pattern but I don't like it as well as this one!
