I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!

It might be worth pointing out in your critique that it would be a little more substantial if the object of your critique had any substance!

I remember feeling that way in a college literature class when we were assigned to write 10 to 12 pages on the meaning of a play (each student was assigned to read a different play). Mine was "Rhinoceros" by Ionesco---an Absurdist play that, by definition, has no meaning! I got around it by reiterating that Absurdists insist that their work has no meaning---but if we were determined to impose meaning on it anyway, here's what it might mean. I got a good grade for it!

I was just a hooking along last night when I spilled ice water all over my Afghan all over my legs, my foot & all over the recliner! So I soaked that up & moved to the couch - then the Afghan was so wet it was making the couch all wet (soft leather)– so I gave up & hung the afghan over a chair to dry! I got maybe a row done, if that! I guess it wasn't meant to be… LOL
I hope I can finish it in time, too, but I'm not going to sweat it. I like the look of it and I'm tempted to keep it!

I'm glad your spill was only ice water (although that was bad enough!). I have an old popcorn tin (one of the big ones that had three flavors in it) that I cleaned out to keep odds and ends of yarn in. One day I knocked a glass of soda off the lamp table and into the tin full of yarn. Bad language ensued! I think I also knocked over my pencil-cup full of hooks trying to clean up the mess. The whole stash of leftover yarn had to go. Ugh. Hope your afghan is dry now so you can stitch on it again! Don't forget to post a picture.

The World Series has been a good excuse to sit down and put a few rows on the afghan while we cheer on the Sox!

I agree - I'm ready for some Chrismtas lights to light up the night! The sun was starting to go down at 5:45 last night, which means by Sunday it will start going down at 4:45 already! UGH!
