As a freelance copy editor and transcriptionist (and a student again as well!), I happily work for myself from home, which generally allows me to knit and craft and create when the mood strikes.
For me, knitting and crocheting has evolved from a hobby to an all-consuming passion (some would say obsession). Inspiration for my designs is drawn from all over the place, including past travels -- from Turkey to Kyrgyzstan and many places in between.

If you're looking to make a large, thick blanket, this is the pattern for you. The rays work up quickly, and the circular sun in the centre of the piece uses a broomstick stitch to add detail to catch the eye. This is also a great project for using up mismatched worsted-weight yarn.
You will need 14-15 skeins of 100g/180m worsted weight yarn and a 6mm needle to complete this large afghan. The pattern uses sc, hdc, dc, broomstick, and puff/pineapple stitch (US crochet terms). I would say this is a beginner to advanced-beginner pattern.
