Tiye really picked it up quick.
Here is Nelerene's progress on Wednesday. She admitted to taking it out and starting over because somehow she ended up with 28 stitches and started with 20. I spoke to her yesterday and the funniest thing was when she said "I guess I am going home to knit"
I knew it was bound to happen sooner or later, because of course it's in her genes. I think it also has something to do with the fact that she is a busy body and likes to be doing something all the time. She is going on a cruise in a couple of weeks and wants to have something to do -- in case she gets bored. On Wednesday she picked out yarn for her first shawl... yes I said it... first shawl, but the catch is that she won't be knitting it. CAJ will. She needs it for those cool nights on the ship. I am hoping that it will inspire her to also knit a shawl later down the road. So far she is doing really well. She tends to be a perfectionist so, I know whatever she makes it will look good.
Okay, so the conventions are over and both were historic. The Democrats presented the nation with its first black nominee for President. The Republicans nominated a woman Vice President. . Now the real work begins. I fear it is going to be nasty.Look what just got launched on the upcoming election. Be sure to click the video directly.
I couldn't watch it. I feel like it was just a waste of time. Same old Republican lies and negative slanders. Why should we trust the same party that controlled Washington for the last decade to do change themselves? McCain's speech suffered from the fact that all these issues he's trying to "change" were caused by his own party over the past eight years. He and the rest of the GOP mock Obama's "hope" and "change"... all while using those same words to promote their own ideologies.
