I am ready to start my next BIG project... the Great American ARAN Afghan! I selected this yarn because I wanted something that reminded me of OATMEAL. The off white colored "oatmeal" yarn will the background for each block I plan to complete. I selected some sagey green, a heathery blue, and a medium brown for just a little contrast. Before I start... I must finish the Kitchener stitch to close the toes on Mimi's Bed Socks... but after that, I am ready to dig into this project.
