Ohhh, so many pictures!

Well, awhile back one of my favorite blog writers, Rachael at Yarn-a-Go-Go lost her dear mother.  I was so upset by this because there are so many aspects of her life that I identify with, and I just couldn’t put myself in her shoes.  I mean, what a loss, but she handled everything so gracefully and wrote about her mother with such kindness.  So, what’s a knitter to do but send out mass emails and get some squares together?

Love Blanket

The verdict is, she loves it.  I am so glad!

I also have kept myself pretty busy with Christmas knitting, with a little time for spinning…

CMF Merino/Tencel
I think it is Crown Mountain Farms, but I must confess I have lost the band!  It is Merino/Tencel, and so shiny!  I got it at Rhinebeck 2006, and most of it was used for my first spinning, so this is only about 70 yards…what can I do with that?  Anyone?

I also have this going on…

Gale's Art BFL

This is BFL by Gale’s Art in “Festival,” picked up at MDSW 2008.  I really like this fiber, the colors are true, and I think the plying is going to make one awesome sock yarn…so much fun!

Here’s a few more pics, just for fun!

Did you ever make tents when it was rainy outside?  Knitbaby seems to love it!

Getting dragged around the kitchen by Daddy is the best!

Do it. Do it.

Even if the lines are long…

Even if everyone tells you that your one, small voice doesn’t count…

Even if you get there at the last minute and everyone has to wait for you…

Even if you get there early and bang on the doors…

Even if they sigh as they help you up the steps…

Even if you get dirty looks for bringing your kids along…

Even if they all have to wait for you to get home before dinner gets cooked…

Even if your stomach growls because you skipped lunch…

No matter what obstacles you face, no matter who you are or where you’re from, no matter what you have to sacrifice today…

VOTE. 

It’s the only thing keeping us free.
