Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! That is such an amazing afghan and you're off to a great start. Whenever I get intimidated by something I try to remind myself a) it's all just knits and purls and I got that down pat and b) I can always cast something else on ;)

I am so sorry for your losses! With the history of breast cancer in your famly, it might be worthwhile to have a genetic test done for your daughter to see if she is going to be at risk. My grandmother died from breast cancer, and my aunt is in remission for it - since she has a daughter and me she decided to get to genetic test done to see if my cousin and I were at risk. Thankfully it is not genetic in my family.

The recipe looks very tasty! I love orange paired with dark chocolate and will definitely bake these up.

I've been itching to do this shawl in this yarn since I first saw it at my local yarn store. Love the drape of it once it's all knitted up...here's hoping mine comes out just as nicely

Looking forward to going home this weekend (wish Nate could come :( ) for Tori's graduation pool party. Also will be teaching my Aunt's friend how to knit - poor woman was just diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer and wants something to do with her hands while undergoing chemo. So, picked her up some beautiful Mirasol yarn and size 7 needles to practice with.

I am very confused by all of this...does it come with one of those Ikea Instruction manuals?
