Happy Valentine's Day

Yesterday I put the final touches on my 2010 Block A Month Afghan. It's a bit, ok a lot more than a bit, bigger than your normal afghan. I went a bit overboard on the borders. Once I added borders to each of the blocks and seamed them together, I should have called it a day, but I had just received Nicky Epstein's book crochet border book and I couldn't leave well enough alone. I do like the additional border I added.

And now it fits quite comfortably on a king sized bed without looking too small.

I finished Paul' gloves last Wednesday and am just now getting around to posting a photo. These were so much more fun to work on than the brown and red ones.

Now, I'm working on a hat for Paul. This is the watchcap from the book "Knits Men Want". There are quite a few patterns in that book I intend to make. Just about everything with the exception of the fingerless mitts. Paul wouldn't be caught dead in those.
