I’m 22 and so my cousins who are older than me are getting married off and having kids.
I’m particularly close to one aunt of mine, and when my cousin announced that his wife will have a daughter in May. I made a blanket, scarf and hat for the baby.
I called my aunt I before made them, seeing if that would be good. She said that would be great b/c no one else was doing that.
Then, after not hearing from her for several weeks she sent me a semi-personal note with a couple sentences tacked on the end thaking me for the sweater.
I didn’t make a sweater!
I know its a small thing but I worked really hard on the blanket and hat and scarf. I was actually hoping to hear from my cousin, whom I haven’t heard from in quite a while (understandably).
Next time my aunt calls, I’m sure she’ll bring up the “sweater” I never made becuase she wants to know how I made it…she is normally not like this(she’s very together and professional)…do I just fib so I don’t hurt her feelings or do I tell her that I made a blanket not a sweater (though I know she’ll probably feel hurt and stupid)?
