Not Perfect but Done!


It's a cold and rainy, sleety sort of day, 
just perfect to sit in front on the fire 
while everyone else is out of the house,
catch up on a Netflix series I love, and 
finish my crochet afghan.

It's not perfect but head and shoulders better
than the last one I did.  I seem to have a 
problem making sure I have the right number of stitches
because one side is typically longer than the other,
or the ends are somewhat scalloped
and not intentionally  LOL!
Regardless, it's big and it's warm
plus it's done!

Now I can move on to something else.

I try to leave perfection for the perfect people, it just isn't worth my time to get to that point.

I have the same problem every time I try to knit or crochet something. It NEVER turns out! I always have a long or short side too :) So... I totally understand this post.

Looking good. That should keep you all warm when the cold winds blow!

It was 66 degrees above here today, I drove the car with the windows down for the first time in ages.

I know just what you mean about 'scalloped' edges. :)
I had the weirdest thing ever when I first tried a ripple stitch...it looked like it was 'LEANING'...
anyway, I like this with the color and I bet it was warm to sit under while you crocheted.

It was warm while I was working on it! Now my granddaughter is cuddling up under it while they watch an old Beach Party movie!

Wow- 66 degrees- break out the tank tops and flip flops! I am so tired of single digit temperatures with negative wind chills. It got into the 30s today and we thought we were having a heat wave.

That's just got to be the long lost flag of Freedonia!

Yahoo What a coincidence, We just turned on Duck Soup last night and of course heard the Freedonia national anthem.

I knew it! Your subconscious saw Duck Soup on your TV in the future while you were just beginning your project and told you how to make the flag of Freedonia. It wasn't shown in the movie. You're the only person to have ever seen it. You're a Precog!
