How to Make a Crocheter Smile in 1.7 Seconds

I've been told I'm one of those serious types who doesn't smile often enough. I like to disagree with anyone who calls me overly serious and point out the deepening laugh lines that tease me every time I look in the mirror.

But, even on my most serious of days one thing that will make me smile faster than a speeding bullet is for someone to say, "I love that! Will you make one for me?" Then the coy, demure expression takes over and you may hear me say, "Really, you like it? Of course I'll make one for you! What color?"

Last week I had two friends reach out to me within a three day period asking about Infinity Scarves I had made. Maybe it's the change from summer into fall that's rousing my dear friends from their yarn-less slumber. Or maybe I should give myself a little more credit that I can crochet a great scarf! Either way, I've been smiling ever since the first message asking for one of my handmade creations.
