I wonder why I plan to accomplish certain things each week, then when that time is past, I look back on the different things that I got done instead. Must be the result of that old saying: Life happens while you’re making other plans.

I did complete one thing that was on my agenda: I crocheted a cap in a cable pattern, a brand new stitch for my repertoire. Decades ago, I knit several cable sweaters, but doing cables with a crochet hook is a different matter altogether. It requires a bit more patience than making cables with an extra knitting needle. But I do believe this crocheted cable stitch looks great:

I followed the pattern for this cap from the wonderful
website for crocheted items at

Next I’m going to knit a couple of caps in different cable patterns, so March is pretty well set for me, as far as my work on Caps for Cancer Patients is concerned. This cap makes a total of seven for 2014. But since four that I’ve made are in the colors of the Gay Pride flag, I’ll also offer them to members of the LGBT community, whether they have cancer or not. That means three are definitely for the Caps for Cancer Patients program, and four others could go for either cause, or both.

At least I’m accomplishing something useful, but not all I’d like to get done. Ah well, there’s always next week. Come back then.

As always, I invite everyone to join me in a vow to use our blessings, skills, and talents to build a society without poverty or war in which everyone is able to enjoy at least the basic benefits of prosperity and peace.

Meanwhile, send out your positive thoughts and, for those who are believers, prayers for all the suffering souls all around the world!

The World I Imagine: A creative manual for ending poverty and building peace and my historical mystery novel, Lion’s Pride, are available through your local bookstore. They are featured at, Barnes & Noble, and most online bookstores around the world. Both are available for Kindle readers.

COMMENTS: The purpose of this blog is to share positive ideas for making changes that will help everyone, not just a narrow group of people. I’d love to hear more ideas for imprinting positive effects over a wide range of areas in our society.
