Get off yer duff and VOTE!

Okay, that's pretty much the political ranting for this posting, since after all this is a knitting blog and not one of those crazed extremist political blogs I occasionally come across. Only a short line at my polling place, fortunately, so it was shocking to go on the internet and see all the images of 400 people lining up in Ohio before dawn. If nothing else, it's nice to see Americans getting off their collective rears and caring enough to get out there.

In the knitting world, we had the first theatre folk Stitch 'n' Bitch in Oakland yesterday. Wonderful homemade pizza. Just five of us -- three knitters and two newbies, both bravely attacking the yarn and forging ahead on their very first attempts. Since I believe in spreading the love, I lent my SnB book to one of them. Best of luck to her!

Excellent progress is being made on the left front of the blue cardy; might even be finished by the time Jon Stewart finishes his "Indecision 2004" report tonight. To my mind, it's the only election report worth watching!

I so agree. I love the Daily Show! Sometime while watching I don't know whether or not I should laugh or cry.
