This is what hubby thinks...

Of my yarn piles. He makes one pile while he's cleaning :) I won't complain, because my hubby cleans, like, the whole house while I'm working. How could I complain? How many wives are lucky enough for that???

Anyways, we all got the stomach yuckies. I think it was from Taco Smell because hubby, me and my bro all ate the same thing and we all got sick. I'm finally feeling better today. I've been working on this recently.

You can ravel the pattern here, or get the pdf here. It's called the quilt inspired throw and reminds me of a log cabin quilt square. It's very simple and quick going. I did all of this in one sitting. When it's done, I'll give you guys all the details (yarn, hook, etc.). The hardest part was deciding where to put which colors because the original called for 8 different colors and I only wanted to use 4. The finished throw will be a wedding present to a friend of my brothers that I was pretty close to growing up. He and his fiance registered for just about everything (sheets, towels, etc.) in brown and yellow, so that's how I chose the colors. Now I have to get this and the little little bro's scarf done by the weekend of the 21st. Oui!

Very nice blanket so far!

LOL about Taco Bell! I've never gotten sick from it, but my husband and sister swear they can't eat it without getting the "runs" - I guess they were telling the truth, ha, ha!

The Log Cabin Afghan looks great! The colors are perfect. What a lucky couple!

Very nice - both the husband that cleans (sweet!) and the start on the blanket.
