I've been on a real knitting, crocheting and even weaving kick lately. Usually, my favorite way to work with fiber is to dye or spin it, but lately it's been nice just sitting in the evening with a cup of tea and clicking the needles.
This project stemmed from another (which is often how things go). I was buying yarn for an arm knitted scarf with my mom, when she saw this free afghan pattern by Lion Brand displayed on an end cap. She fell in love and hinted that she would like me to make it for her.
If you're interested in making this afghan it's a very easy project.

I changed the pattern slightly by crocheting a cream border around the whole afghan.
