Working with the Scale Quilting Pattern
The Scale Quilting block creates a beautifully patterned fabric. When the fabric is aligned vertically, it does in fact appear like scales. It has great potential for costuming as dragon scales, bird feathers, etc. When the fabric is turned horizontally, it reminds me a fish tessellation pattern. Have fun with this pattern!

Learn to Knit Afghan Project
This series covers several different knitting stitches using the Learn-to-Knit Afghan book by Barbara Walker. Whether you are a true beginner or an intermediate knitter, you can take your knitting to the next level working through the blocks in this book. About once a week I will be adding one new block to the blog with some of my notes. If you would like to knit along with us please feel free to leave your comments, questions, suggestions, and links to photos in the COMMENT section. You can also add a photo to our Flickr group or tag a Tweet with #WFAlearn2knit. If you are just joining us you might want to start with the introductory post.
Getting Started Knitting
If you are completely new to knitting you can learn the basics of getting starting with our Newbie Knitting series. Once you have tackled the first few lessons there, you will be ready to begin your afghan.
