I love this Understated Cable afghan for it color first of all. I like the diamond design further enhanced by the cables crossing the diamonds. This is cute.

Oh my! I'm going to have to pick up my pace on crocheting. I'm finding myself liking more and more of the intermediate patterns. This could be dangerous in a fun sort of way! This pattern looks very sophisticated and I notice there is a few new vocabulary words (i.e. new stitches) to learn also. Well, it never hurts to have something to reach for does it?
