Yes. We. Did.

In honor of change I give you my tribute to the American democratic process...



Knit (and crocheted!) entirely from my stash, this lovely 100% virgin acrylic piece of Americana kept my digits busy as I fell deeper and deeper into the sway of the 2008 campaign season. As a result I found that I knit faster when something I heard, saw, read ticked me off along the way. Ahhh yes, it's those little revelations that make our political system worth participating in....



I had actually planned to wear this cape while voting, but alas it was nearly 80 degrees in my hood yesterday! At any rate, I wore it to work today. Uh yeah, pretty much everyone at the Cube Farm knows which way my political pendulum swings now...

Oh yes, we did!

hehe...I tried to get my daughter to wear the RW&B cape I made for the Bi-Centennial in 1976, for her first time to vote, but alas, she was not having any of it. BUT, she did think being able to go to a polling place to vote was "awesome", her word, not mine. Yes.She.Did.

Yay, for change! YES. WE. DID! I was too fidgety to even work on a project. I don't know how you found the patience.

See it doesn't matter which way your swing -- your patriotic and that is what matters most! Love, love, love the shawl!
