- Picking up the needles again.

So I want to ease back into knitting. I definitely want to make stuff for the baby but I wanted to start with a small project that I know I can/will finish so that when I really get back into it, I'll have that "I accomplished something" feeling.

So I picked up the needles yesterday CO about 35 stitches with some cheap 'ol walmart brand cotton. I'm going to make a dishcloth.
Row 1-2: Knit 2 rows,
Row 3: K2 *p1,k1* K2,
Row 4: K all stitches,
repeat Rows 3 and 4 until desired length. After completing a K2 *p1,k1*K2 row, knit two rows bind off.
I figure simple, quick, slight pattern-ish, good way to ease in.

Then I started thinking, "If I'd made this bigger I could TOTALLY make it into a bib...you know your back when while you're knitting a project you are already 1)thinking of the next one, and 2) making adjustments in your head.

- OMG Peta is ridiculous

OMG, PETA is too funny!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!! Read this article. They want Ben and Jerry's to start using breast milk as opposed to cow milk.

Now on to more serious topics. John McCain wants to suspend his campaign and "work on the economy." Ok, maybe it's me, but that makes me think either:

1) He can only focus on one issue at a time (ie not a multi-tasker) and when a serious problem arises he can't do anything else but pay attention to that and only that.
  • Except seriously? He has to suspend his campaign?!? Does anyone REALLY truly think McCain runs the campaign? Come on, he has people to do that. He delegates, he doesn't deal with the day to day stuff. So in reality, he's suspending nothing.
2) He wants to take momentum away from Barack.
  • If he really wanted to do that, he'd debate and make a good showing of his knowledge of the issues and "win" the debate. That is what will truly take momentum away from Obama.
I'm sure there are people out there who think this is some king of genuine......uh....something, but seriously, can you be more of a politician? Can you say political game? I am sick and tired of this kind of game playing BULLSHIT! Debate, make your points, talk about the issues, answer a freaking question! That will win you points.

Oh, OH, how 'bout this, TELL THE TRUTH?!? OMG, do you think that might help?!?

Oh, BTW, I'm working the election as a precinct inspector. I'm working it in all my pregnant glory. WOO HOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (I'll be 6 months next week!)

- 80% chance of......

Well according to the OB we have an 80% chance of a girl. Her(?) legs were not only closed but crossed, and she refused to open them. She also had her hand covering her face. :-)

We're hoping to try again for a look, but we'll see if it happens.
