drop everything!

A very dear friend of mine is turning 40 in a few weeks. I absolutely have to make her an afghan. It will be the perfect gift for her. Every time she visits my home, she compliments me on the afghans I have on my couches. They are very plain and simple but she adores them.

So I know she would LOVE one. Of course I know her favourite colours, and what will compliment her home beautifully. And I am more than happy to put the time and effort into making her something extra special.

Problem is... I have only just realised her fortieth is coming up. I actually thought she still had a few more years to go yet! So I am under some time pressure here...

I've started... working with two strands of yarn, and a large hook. It's going to be a large afghan... suitable to drape across a queen size bed and keep both occupants warm.

So I'm going to need some encouragement. I need to get this done. Started on it last night. Now I just need to build up momentum and go for it!
