Photo of knitting progress as promised. I am loving this pattern, really, really, loving it. I am also really, really loving this yarn. Unlike its cousin, Scratchy Kureyon, Silk Garden is in a different league altogether. I like the way the sleeves are the same, but not quite the same (quite intentional I assure you!). I have cast on the back and fronts (you do this all in one piece) but this is growing at a snails pace for 2 reasons - 1. the two-colour rib is slow work with 191 stitches, and 2. I keep falling asleep! Oh and 3. I keep playing at other stuff as well - scarves and socks with that Christmas deadline!
So all you Americans out there, are you as glad as me that election day has finally arrived? We just have wall to wall US politics lately and I am fed up of it all. I don't know who I would vote for, Obama looks like fun and Palin looks a bit of a fruit cake (always had a liking for fruit cake). Don't understand it all - don't want to understand it all either. Politics seems like a whole load of people arguing with each other and solving nothing. What will be, will be.
Just pass me the chocolate cake someone!
Hey, shocking news I've just heard on the radio. Remember this film? One of those feel good films where the baddies get their comeuppance and the goodies triumph over adversity. Anyway, the Karate Kid is 47 today. 47? Surely not - where did those 30 years go?
