I sure got a lot done! I really wanted to see what the Democrats had to say for themselves yesterday, it being the anniversary of women’s suffrage, but it drives me crazy to just sit there. Luckily I had plenty to do!
I began a baby blanket out of organic cotton last night! It’s the mitered square from Mason Dixon Knitting. I didn’t buy it, but I have discovered something AMAZING- the Salem Library has an Outstanding knitting section! I got out Knitting Nature and a stitch dictionary! And there are a TON more I can’t wait to read! Yeah- I read them, I admit it, I read them like a novel. It’s a little weird, but it’s more about the inspiration of it.
I really like their book. It makes me want to knit dishcloths and bathmats and rugs! Which is definitely something I’ve never wanted to do before!
Anyway- the baby blanket is colors of Blue Sky Alpaca Organic Cotton. The colors are a little washed out because this picture was taken in poor light. The blue is a more blue- I’ll take a better picture tonight! I’m making a smaller version of the squares. I cast on 36 stitches instead of 72. I’m thinking that I’ll do 16 squares, but we’ll see how it turns out! I really enjoyed the first four and am thinking that my father might want a mitered square blanket for Christmas! In manly colors- of course.
We moved this white table on top of one of our Ottomans while we moved some stuff around. KITTY FORT!
Sorry- back to the original topic of this post! I thought the convention had a great night last night! Hillary was great, and I loved her orange pants suit!!

What a lovely color!! And I love the gold ballet flats! But she convinced me, as I hope she convinced her other supporters- There is no doubt that I will be voting for Obama in November.
