Election

It's all over but the counting. Except in precincts where there was still a 4 hour wait to vote when the polls closed! Yes, really. In parts of Pennsylvania (and probably other states). Population growth and inept planning added to the nightmare this election season has become.

And even though it's way past my bedtime, I promised to stay up "until Peter Jennings calls Florida for Al Gore. Then I'll go to bed."

No, wait. That was last time!

The good news is, I got a lot of crafting done. Finished a granny square afghan. (Remind me again why I am joining these squares. . .)



And even though each round takes 15 minutes, I made some progress on the lopi:



Wide expanses of gray stockinette stitch are nearly as boring to knit as they are to look at!

Oh, and I worked on another bear sweater.

Productive night! Now let's see some election results!

Comments:
I just had to tell you that I LOVE the afghan and the sweater looks like it will be warm. :)
 
The blanket is made-of-squares-made-by-others, so I have control only over the placement of the squares. I am lucky that I was able to find enough that coordinate! Next one may not be as "pretty" but will be !pretty! if you get my drift.

And the sweater is VERY warm (as in "could someone please turn the heat down until I get this thing off my lap" warm). It's all wool and bulky weight.
