I finished my afghan today. I had three very large balls of wool that needed to be used. They were 16 oz. each. I decided on the ripple pattern so that it would be more interesting than just straight knitting. The finished measurements are 60 x 50. I hate joining sections together so it is knit in one piece with no seams. I used a circular needle with over 300 stitches per row. It kept me warm while I knitted.
