I would choose heart for sure. You can do anything if you follow your heart, including becoming more courageous or learning more, so heart it is.

Oh and I say heart. "What the world needs now is love sweet love/ It's the only thing that there's just too little of". I sang that in my head as a typed.

i also love and follow your blog i hope i win this would be the perfect winter blanket

Itsy Bitsy Spider said...

Heart is always the most important. If you have love, you don't need brains (think Forest Gump) and the idea of courage is really an illusion when you have love. I may not be a brave person, but I would do ANYTHING for my daughter because I love her.

Ashley Ann said...

Heart, of course!

What a lovely blanket! You better get to work on lots of blankets for the holidays. I'd totally buy myself one for Christmas. :D

I would say brains is the most important, if only because they are the most delicious XD that may be a zombie joke o.O

hm. Brains are definitely good, but I think I must go with heart. I'm a sucker for love and following your hearts' desires. 0_o

Lucy said...

Heart because you might have courage and brains but without the heart, you're just an empty shell functioning with no meaning.

And I tweeted it too at:

I love this colourful blanket Becky, I think I already have plenty of heart, but I really wish I had more brains, sometimes I feel so...dense!

Sway said...

I live my life by my heart, not my head (sometimes for the worst, but mostly always it turns out the best!). So for me, it's heart for sure. And courage comes from having heart.

Also, this was always one of my most favourite scenes - I love Tin Man's answer

Wizard of Oz: As for you, my galvanized friend, you want a heart. You don't know how lucky you are not to have one. Hearts will never be practical until they can be made unbreakable.
Tin Woodsman: But I still want one.

Ps - Becky - your crocheting adventures actually got me started crocheting too - but I'm not up to blankets yet :) I adore this one!!

Sway said...

Oh - and I'm a follower!!

lindsay harmony said...

Brains are definitely most important to me! The ability to think critically is something I cherish.

Jodie said...

Heart for sure!
there is a line in an Ataris song I love, and try to live by :)
"the only thing that matters is just following your heart, and eventually you'll finally get it right".
isnt that just so true?

and holy crap, i love that blanket, i always wished i could crochet..it must of taken you ages to do!
xx

Vera said...

1. the heart...it matches the soul. Inside it the real you and i think it's one of the most important things in life to really be yourself :)

I love the blanket! I would use it for our little baby that we're expecting this january ❤

Rose said...

I deffinately think heart is most important. Courage and brains will only get you so far, without a good heart they mean nothing. Heart is what shapes relationships with friends, family and those around us, and whats life without relationships :)
Such a great giveaway, your blanket is so bright and happy!

bebe bird beck said...

This blanket is soooo beautiful! What an awesome job.

I follow. :]

Hearthandmade said...

all of them are important... but i agree with a lot of others.. Having a good heart means you have other fantastic qualities.. such as empathy... which is very important. x

bebe bird beck said...

Heart is definitely most important. If you have the smartest most couragest man or friend in the world but their heart is ugly and full of deceit, it would be no fun.

Robert Rules said...

the courage to follow your heart because you know its the right thing to do. its a universal statement that can be used in almost every aspect of our lives.

Katelyn said...

I think heart is so important...people don't have to be super brainy to be wonderful people with good hearts!! I love meeting people with loving and giving hearts.

Digital Misfit said...

All 3 are rather dependent upon each other for true fulfillment, but I believe that heart is the most important.
Without love and passion, all that remains is a know-it-all bully.

As lovely as the blanket is I don't want to enter, but I do want to comment. I think it takes courage to follow your heart, and brains to get out of the trouble that comes from doing so.

Molly Le Blanc said...

Gorgeous Beck! Heart is most important - and it helps you with your courage and your brain. Always go with your heart.

This blanket is AMAZING! Since I can't granny square myself, I want this sooooooo bad!

I think having heart is the most important. If someone doesn't have heart they don't have anything.

Cherry Red Studio said...

i think heart is most important to me :) plus i dont know if you are really that intelligent if you dont have heart anyways!

burgiggle said...

i just found your blog and the fact that you learned to crochet a year ago is really inspiring. i have been wanting to learn for years!

as far as your question- heart is definitely the more important quality. brains help but with no heart to guide you where will you end up?

erica said...

I would love to win this beautiful blanket. Your blog inspired me to crochet a giant granny square blanket for my son and I am happy to say that I am almost done. I think you are amazingly fast at making blankets and your color combos are great.

Ok, to answer the question, I think heart is what a person needs. I think courage and brains are very useful too, but a person needs heart to care for and have compassion.

erica said...

I'm a follower too!

the snoozing kitten said...

All steps followed: check! Now for the best part, and I would have to go with courage. Everyone has a heart & a brain but it takes real courage to open one's heart or use one's brain and to know which one to listen to over the other.

I think Heart is more important than courage or brains. I don't like dealing with/hearing about heartless people :( Besides, the world can always use more love, right?

Brains taste better. Although, who can resist grilled heart with fava beans and a nice Chianti.

I don't need to enter the drawing...I can just take this from your desk when you're not looking.
