This afghan was made to give to a friend as a birthday gift. One of my favorite afghans I have made.

I made probably the worst mistake you could make when making something like this... I did not make a swatch. I paid for it! Next time. It still came out fine. Lesson learned.
I can only shudder to think what will happen when a man decides to make a similar statement. ;)
Hi folks. Thought this might interest you:
Morning All, I've put down my son's herringbone scarf till he returns from university this week. He asked me not to get to far along with it until he can see it just in case he'd prefer a different stitch. So now it is sitting in the basket waiting for his OK. So what to do in the mean time. I love knitting lace. At first I was really intimidated by it.
Afternoon All, Well I spent the morning hard at work baking the first batches of Christmas Cookies while my lovely wife went to the salon, a local craft fair and mailed packages to family in Texas & New Jersey. Then I then took her out to lunch to one of our favorite spots and as we were close to one of my favorite knit shops she suggested we stop in.
Morning All, If you are looking for ideas for next year's Christmas gifts here is a great idea form the Dec/Jan 2014 issue of "Country Living" from their section idea notebook pg 41-44. Have a good weekend all, JRob

Not sure I'd have the patience... Is this anything you would actually attempt, maybe for your upcoming holiday celebrations?
