Yesterday, I spent glued to the TV watching the inaugeration - wow! Makes me kinda wish I was American - it was so amazing - we don't have anything political like that up here. Our prime minister is sworn in with some kind of ceremony but it's not really a big deal. I am excited for what I think Barack Obama will bring to the world - not just the US - he is an amazing man. My mother was a huge fan of John F. Kennedy and in fact, she and my dad went to Washington DC on their honeymoon. I remember her crying when she was watching the funeral on TV and I remember asking her why and she said because he was such a great man. I feel like she must have felt about Barack Obama - he's mesmorizing and I sure hope he can change politics the way he says he wants to.....congratulatons to all my American friends on your new President - you should be very proud of a man like that. Oh and my favorite part - watching the Neighborhood Ball on TV and seeing he and his wife dancing to Beyonce - and then when he danced with just ordinary people to Stevie Wonder - well, I could not wipe the smile from my face. There he was the President of the United States dancing and dancing well!
Not something knit by me - but something worn by me at every opportunity. Grace from Araucania Collection Book 1 knit out of Tanis Fiber Arts Aran in Spearmint - I'm in love!
And now for something knit by me - it's going to be a contest. Name the yarn, and pattern. It's on it's way to Pick Up Sticks. Along with some new Handmaiden yarns, new Artyarns, new Classic Elite La Gran, Dream in Color Starry......and lots more!
