i don't know i think i would check patterns first and see what patterns you like and what they call for. i typically use a 29 or 36 inch circ and anywhere from 13-17 in size. now that being said, i have abandoned every afghan i have started because they reeeeeeeally bore me! I know a lot of people make them and love them but i feel like poking my eyes out with the sticks wouldn't be so bad. mostly cuz i am an instant gratification kinda girl too....i need to be able to see progress very quickly to be happy! :rollseyes:
ummm....and yeah i started knitting to make afghans and socks. i haven't finished an afghan nor knitted a single sock (unless booties count! ) but i have had lotsa fun with the stuff i have made!
