Knitting or crocheting an afghan/blanket I have always avoided because of the time commitment and the amount of yarn reqired.
With that being said, now that I have started two afghans at the same time (this sounds even crazier as I'm typing it), I decided to have some fun with it and measure the race in hanks or skeins. I am going to race myself and race Katie too (she may not be game to this) but I'm going to gauge it like this to keep me going and to get these projects on my completed list.
So here are the stats to date:
Katie's Retro Crochet Blanket working on hank 7 of 19* skein project - 36% complete
My Retro Crochet Blanket working on hank 7 of 19 skein project - 36% complete
My Teal Blue Knit Blanket working on hank 2 of 11 hank project - 9% complete
*Katie wasn't sure at the time how many hanks she had but will confirm in the next update.
And they're off!
Feel free to jiin in our/my fun and we can keep track together
