Big Day

Yes, it is a big day. Vote! Don't let anyone take away your right to be heard. While I will say that living in Texas is a bit hard on a Democratic voter, I think going to the polls is just something that you have to pencil in on your calendar. Doesn't matter how you vote--just do. If you don't know where to vote, or have problems getting in to the polling places to vote, take a look at My polling place.com.

A side bar to all of this is my disgust with those who are challenging voters at the polls in Ohio. If there is anything that strikes me as un-Democratic about this election (and there are numerous), it is targeting minority district voters with intimidation. I don't buy the "there might be voter fraud" argument. If that was the case, these people would be in the rich white areas going through the same strategy. I just really fear that this is going to be another "in the courts" election. Sigh. (ponders if Chocolate will help with this disgust--maybe a little).

Another high point today--The Klaralund debut! It is actually cold (by Texas standards) and rainy, so I put the finished Klara on and wore her to work. Here are the pictures:

And some small person wanted Daddy to take her picture too:

I made the second small size (s2) in the errata to fit a 38. I used the Noro Silk Garden 8, the same colorway in the original pattern. The sweater only took 7.5 skeins of yarn, so I'm trying to figure out what I could make with the leftovers--something felted? I did end up shortening the arms 1.5 inches, which was a good idea. They are longish, but feel right.

Thanks to all of the Klaralund Knit a longers for their guidance! I appreciate it!
