He built this box, which serves as the base of the chess board and covered each section with felt so that the ceramic pieces would be absolutely protected within. I think he did a fabulous job! He has already started another board today. I think he's as obsessed with this as I was about my ripple afghans. Oh, speaking of afghans, he has now completed 3 crocheted afghans himself! He had to halt progress on the one for our son, Anthony, because I couldn't find more yarn in the color he needed. I finally ordered it from Joann.com and we're anxiously awaiting it. It has been so nice to sit side by side in the evening and crochet together. Isn't that every girl's dream? Get your man involved in your craft and then he can't complain about your yarn purchases because he is dying to raid your stash!
