Just finished an afghan the other day. I used the Granny Goes Ripple pattern. The yarn I used was Caron Cake and Caron One Pound. I didn't realized that the Caron Cake was a wool and acrylic blend and was recommended to be hand washed. Another thing about Caron Cake yarn is that it is very light weight when compared to other medium weight worsted yarns. The afghan was going to be a gift but I decided to keep it for myself and make another one for a gift. Here's the pic:
Take care and hope all is well with you.
