I knit (not crocheted) an afghan for myself when I was in my 20's, and my mother really liked it, so I offered to make a pair of afghans for my parents for their 30th anniversary. My mother and I picked out the yarn together, and when I asked about patterns, she said I had such good taste, she knew they would love whatever I chose.
Fast forward a few months, and I've put in several hours of work on the first afghan. My mother sees it for the first time and announces that she doesn't like the pattern and I shouldn't waste my time...
Ooh, that's painful
! If anyone pulled that on me they'd be pulling knitting needles from random body parts.
It was tempting! Instead I just handed her the bag of yarn, and she eventually made the afghans herself.
BTW, I love the baby blanket.
