Once again I plopped my knitting right down on the scanner. I hope I get the new camera soon. I need it! Obviously! This is a Broadripple sock from Knitty. I'm making it for LD. She's growing so darn fast, that I can't keep up. It will be made of left over balls of different sock yarns. We'll see how that turns out, won't we. Haha.
So, I went and voted yesterday. LD got my I voted sticker, though. She asked how long until she can vote. Then, she showed off the I voted sticker all over town. It's unbelievable that in the next presidential election my oldest son will be able to vote. Holey Moley! Now I feel old.
I think we'll do the stripes on the living room walls tonight. That is if hubby isn't exhausted from work. Speaking of work, I got a couple of comments that I should be getting some kind of commission from blogger. I totally agree. Then, I can buy yarn!
I know there's more to say. Oh, yeah, the people across the street cut down an old, beautiful tree. I don't think it was sick, or dying. I just don't get it. People move here from "the city", for the nature and then cut down the trees and stuff. Honestly! The people on the corner cut down all of the lilacs in their yard. Nice, old pretty lilacs. They just moved here (only in the summers). I know it's probably not my business, but it bugs me. LD wouldn't even trick-or-treat there, cuz she's mad at them. Silent protest or something. Edit: I don't know if it's the home owner or the "city". They are cutting down another tree too. I saw it when I walked down to the school. I hope there is a reason for it. I love trees, and lilacs!
I feel like I forgot to mention something. I'm sure it'll come to me, but I have to go get ready to get the kids. We have to go to the library and pick up Mason Dixon Knitting. I requested it. Mmm-hmm. They called me to let me know it's in. I'm going to see if I want to buy it. Gotta love the library! Edit: It wasn't that book. It was Last Minute Knitted Gifts. I forgot that I had asked for that one after I saw del's sweater from October 30th. She did a super job! I also got the Anne Bartlett novel Knitting. Whoo-Hoo!
Knit on, knitters! That's what I'm going to do!
