It seems I've got myself a full-time job now. A friend of mine is getting married in August. I had too many babies to knit for up until now, so I am just getting started on an afghan (View image). I spent the entire afternoon making 2376 single crochet stitches. And this is the first thing I've made in a long time that isn't for someone who reads my site, so I can actually talk about it!

Other projects, not so much.

Um... why is this a knitting update if you're *crocheting* an afghan? :-p

Also, stupid Lion Brand won't let me see your pattern. Bah!

Ha, Loqi, I had that same thought last night after I turned off the computer. Oh well, I think all yarnwork is knitting in my head!

What a pretty afghan! That will make a gorgeous gift, Sarah. :)

I bow to your endurance! I am an avid hooker and love to whip through a rare baby blanket on occasion but sc stitch after stitch just ties me in knots! (Have I ever mentioned I have an extremely short attention span? Ooh, pretty butterfly!) I have completed ONE adult 7' x 6' afghan for my honey, after much bullying and begging. It only got finished cause he flew home from his 1st tech school post boot camp for his grannies funeral. I did it for granny.
Happy knitting!
