It's not Friday but...I feel like posting pictures

I've been working on a project since January.  It's an afghan, knit a block at a time.  I'm almost done.  I have 16 blocks done, but I think I want 20 to make it a little bigger.  I've laid out all the completed ones below.  And featured a couple of them.  The last 4 will be relatively simple so that I can finish them fast and get them all sewn together with a border before Christmas.  Some of the blocks are very intricate with cables.  Some are relatively easy.  There is at least one with lace too.  I picked colors that reminded me of the ocean.  Tow of the blocks have ocean themes - a sailboat and a lighthouse.  This will be a gift for my sister, for her beach house.

I watched ONE knitting show on PBS and was so intimidated by the steps. These are beautiful and I appreciate how much work went into them.
