Quick Note

Yes, I have been knitting! I have started the border to Highland Triangle #1, and that's going fine. But the stitch count is growing rapidly, so each row is taking longer and longer. The gauge is still pretty big, so I'll have a maximum of 400 stitches at the widest point. Hopefully I'll have a pic, though the shawl just looks like this big black blob on my needles.

In other news, Mike is super happy over the current Democratic Party sucesses, so we've been watching CNN more than usual. I'm also quite pleased over the outcome, especially since Representative Barney Frank (Democrat from Newton, MA) spoke yesterday about liberalizing trade and working on economic growth issues. I'm also very interested to see what Deval Patrick has in store for the state. So I'm optimistic. But I'll leave the real political analysis for those who are more in the know.

In other news, it's raining here. And it rained yesterday too. This really puts a damper on my mood. And the problem set I have to do isn't helping. Back to work!

I like Rep. Barney Frank. Did you know that he has his own TV show that follows him around as he does his congressional duties?

I did not know that about Barney Frank. Interesting!
