Ranting and Knitting

I am going to rant about things that are really making me angry for a bit and the knitting is at the end of this post. I promise there is a FO. I am not trying to cause a rucus or anything, these are just my views and I wanted to put them out there.

1. I am sick and tired of mud slinging campaigns. I don't want to hear in commercials what is wrong with the other guy I want to know what you are going to do to fix the problem.

2. If you run for President and you lose, resign your Senate seat.

3. If you are running for office, vote on the bills and laws that are being voted on in the Senate. The people that put you there did so they could be heard. It is your job to do what the people put you there to do. Yes, that means you will have to be responsible for how you vote during the campaign, and you might have to defend it. DUH!!!!

4. When you are in a debate, quit avoiding the question and answer the question. That is the purpose for debates so the public knows what you are going to do instead of just dancing around the subject or changing the subject all together.

Okay I am done ranting for the moment.

I have a finished object. These are my Spring Forward Socks. Blue Moon Fiber Arts Hot Flash in the lightweight Socks that Rock. This color is on hiatus for a bit.

What do you do at 12:30 in the morning and you can't sleep. You get up and cast on a project is what you do. I cast this on after I ripped out my Secret of the Stole 3 project. Life is too short to knit stuff you don't really like. I am really enjoying this shawl. It is the Kiri Shawl that I found on Ravelry. I am using some KnitPicks Gloss Laceweight for it.

Punkin has been wanting a pair of socks for a while so I cast on a pair of ankle socks for her yesterday. I am almost done with the heel flap on the first one and hope to work on it some today if I get a chance.

I agree with you about the campaigns. Regardless of who you are voting for, last night's debate was a real snoozer.

Your Kiri is going to be very pretty! Hopefully you will like Secret of the Stole IV better than III. See ya next year, Fair Winds

BTW, the socks look great, as does the shawl. I told you you could do it! Even if you should have been sleeping.
