You're right, you're right! I know you're right!
(That's a line spoken by Carrie Fisher in the movie When Harry Met Sally that the Captain and I always say to each other.)
Yellow Sweetheart Blanket
Why do you all have to be so reasonable?
I meant to tell all of you thank you for your comments on the Sweetheart Blanket screw-up. Although I know what the right thing to do is, it really helps to hear you say it. The idea of making every other panel matching was a good one – I think a couple of you mentioned that – but in this particular case, I want all the hearts lined up. So thanks to all of you for your responses.
I still haven’t touched it since discovering the error. I think I’ll have the Captain pull it out for me tonight when he gets home from work. I won’t have to see it and maybe that’ll be less painful.
I just love that afghan, and I hope to make more than one. It does take a lot of time, though, but that’s okay. The results will be worth it, and I’m going to ALWAYS be crocheting something anyway. It's a dead issue and I'm moving on! Yay, me!
How's about some more pretty crochet? Okay...

Love these colors together!
Remember this cotton Oveja shawl I made a while back? I wore it to the doctor's office a couple of days ago and the lady that did my MRI had a fit over it. She went on and on and asked to try it on and admired herself in the mirror. As I was leaving, I put it around her shoulders and told her it was hers. After a bit of back and forth because she didn't want me to just give it to her, she finally accepted it and I left. She said it made her day, but it made mine more. She was so happy and taken aback. She said she was going to wear it to church this Sunday and everyone was going to be so jealous. :)
There's nothing like a random act of kindness! Try it. It'll lift your spirits and fill your heart with joy every time!
I'm going to make myself another one using that same yarn, Bernat Cotton Tots. It was the only shawl I've ever actually worn, and I had worn that one three times recently and gotten comments from strangers on it every time. It's the perfect shawl...not to heavy, not too big, and it matches everything. Maybe I'd better make several if I'm going to be giving them away all over town. Hahaha. It would be gorgeous in black, but the dog hair would show like crazy so I can't do that for myself. The Cotton Tots doesn't come in black either. It does come in a chocolate brown though. Hmm...
