While it is still cold this is a great time to begin the Celtic Afghan by doing a block a month. The first few blocks are rather easy so we may do 2 of those to begin, then as the patterns get more difficult we will do 1 a month. Once all blocks are finished we will spend a couple evenings or a Sunday P.M. putting the blocks together. Call for more detail.
