Quilt for a friend.......

I hate to reward bad behavior but the only way I can stop hearing "where's my quilt?" is if I make her a quilt :) Soon J.R. you pain in my rump :) 
<------------  this will be your quilt and you will love it :)

Don't Waste Time :) Progress on the Fisherman Knit Afghan

I'm still making progress on the Fisherman Knit Afghan. Making some changes to the original pattern. I'm making it 72 inches long instead of 60 inches. Due to the added length, I'm going to make it wider too so it stays proportionate looking. The faux cable panels are working up quick. There are only four rows to memorize.  Brainless.  I have two of them done so far. The seed stitch panels will be a total snore to do......ugh...boring!! Thankfully, there are only two strips of seed stitch.  I'm adding a horseshoe cable strip done over forty stitches and not ruling out adding some other more interesting/non-seed stitch panels.

I just hate wasting time :)  Two of the nurses asked for scarves :) I hope I didn't promise them any when I was a little loopy :)  Just in case you wondered....IVs do not slow down the knitting process :)
Such a boring stitch pattern!
