Silvery Slate Gray Afghan

Another yarn project is underway.  This one is an afghan for an adult.  I’ve selected Bernat Blanket yarn for this project.  This yarn is an ultra-cozy, super bulky chenille-style yarn.  I Love the fact that it comes in a wide range of stylish colors.  The variegated style adds so much character to a project and in the process is complimentary to any home decor.

So as not to detract from the texture of this yarn, I opted to use a garter stitch.  My foundation knit row consists of 130 stitches using 10.5 circular knitting needles.  I purchased five skeins of this yarn.  Each skein is 10.5 ounces.  I want this afghan to be quite large so anyone can wrap themselves up in it, sit on a sofa, and watch a movie or ball game.  Take a glance at the way the colors blend in this view
