I am in the home stretch of finishing this afghan for my step-mom, Rachael.  She asked me to make her an afghan and I agreed because it would make her happy and because I love her. It is the Cromwell Court afghan from the Lion Brand web site. I made changes to the colors that I used. I wasn’t a fan of a solid colored afghan. I have 4 colors in this afghan, which are charcoal grey heather, heather forest green, burgundy wine, and snowy white as the background color. I have 12 more 4-row repeats until I am done with this afghan. I will breathe a sigh of relief when I am done cause I want to be knitting socks but I am sticking to finishing this afghan before I reward myself with a new project that I am dying to sink my teeth into. Another pair of toe up socks that fit as nicely as my Azurea socks do. I can’t wait to cast on!! Socks excite me, can you tell? LOL! So do shawls if the pattern is challenging but not overly so. I love this one from Dee on Ravelry:

Elizabeth shawl

This is one beautiful shawl, but then all of Dee’s patterns are beautiful!! Go check her out! On that note, I am signing off for the night!! Good night everyone! Have a great weekend!

Dear Person With Mental Illness,

You are not a monster. You are a valuable, unique, wonderful human being who deserves everything grand that this life has to offer. Come out from the shadows and stand proudly in who you are.

You are not damaged. You are WHOLE, regardless of having a mental illness. I like you the way you are. I wouldn’t change you. I see you differently than you see yourself. I am not afraid of you or your illness… I am amazed by you. I am amazed by your courage, willpower, gifts and talents. I accept you and your worlds of light and darkness.

Some people just have a “neighborhood” in their mind and they never get lost. You have endless terrain to explore and sometimes you take a wrong turn and can’t find your way home. I love your vast landscape and remember… we can make you…
