From one Angelia (ignore the spelling) to another:
The brain blips are just the result of pressure; you're having to rush to finish. But it's okay--it happens to us all. (Even when some of us aren't in a hurry!!)
finish this afghan--you're almost there!! And it will be loverly--those colors sound just beautimous!!
And how sweet of you to give them something they can snuggle under together! It's not a stupid idea at all, and your brother will so appreciate this because he knows what every stitch means.
You can do it, you can do it!!
