Fall Blanket Knit-Along (KAL)

Some of you have already heard of the Bernat Mystery Afghan Crochet-Along (CAL) going on on the Bernat Blog.

Well, I'm participating in the CAL, making a smaller baby blanket, so that I can learn how to crochet better. I've been reading posts in Ravelry discussions, where some people have said that they would like a Knit-Along (KAL) as well, because they don't know how to crochet.

So, I've started an "unofficial" Bernat KAL, so the knitters will have something to do until Bernat makes a "real" Bernat KAL next year. (tee-hee)

I've chosen a beautiful afghan for us to make: The Bernat Super Value Harvest Blanket.
Bernat's Harvest Blanket

The KAL has just started, so it's not too late to join us! The main location for our KAL is in our Ravelry group:

If you are not a member of Ravelry, just post your comments and photos here. The blanket is designated as an "Easy" pattern, and will make a beautiful addition to your home decor. It uses 7 skeins of Bernat Super Value yarn in the following colors: Taupe Heather, Rustic Heather, Steel Blue Heather, Moss Heather, Plum Heather, Teal Heather, and Redwood Heather.

Of course, you can use any worsted weight you want, in whatever color combination you prefer. I've chosen Bernat Super Value for mine. Using 40% Off coupons at AC Moore, I bought one skein a day last week. :) I just got started knitting Panel 1 this week!
Finally Cast On
