Q&A with conjohndan

1JiJi asked:
I'd love to try this afghan! What size needles and what yarn did you use?
conjohndan answered:
worsted weight (wool) - whatever needle size makes sense. I can't remember. sorry!
Ruby2sday asked:
I can't wait to try this - it is delicate looking but I think it must be sturdy as well...it has that feeling about it. I'm thinking of baby blankets for twins - in a light weight cotton/DK to keep the pattern crisp and the babies cool/comfy and itch-free. Do you think it would/could work out as well?
conjohndan answered:
sure. seems pretty adaptable. you might want to do some type of edge/binding to firm it up, like an i-cord or something.
