Well I had a lot of fun learning from Nicky Epstien @ The Point, NYC this evening. She showed us several ways to make knitted flowers from her current book. Yeah, I was the only guy there! Hey ho I'm used to that. She inspired me to use some of her techniques in my knitting.
Here is the picture of the afghan I've started for my sister. It is from the Holiday 2003 issue of Family Circle Easy Knitting.
