So I just hung up from talking with Sarah, my very good friend, who is working advance for the Kerry-Edwards campaign (she got to breathe the same air as my boyfriend just 24 hours ago.....and got paid for it, lucky bitch), and she said that things are going very well. Her confidence gives me hope, as does the 20-7 Green Bay/Washington score.
Because I feel obligated to brag about my friends' craftiness, I got an e-mail today with pics of Mandy's goodies that she is doing for a craft show at work (as if there could be a better job than rubbing up against, I mean planning rallies for, John Edwards, Mandy is a stage manager for O). I have seen her handiwork on glasses
but I think that this is my favorite piece
Too bad she lives in Viva Las Vegas (that is the full name of the city, don't you know) or we could have our own little craft fair. Viva craftiness!
In sad news, I have been dreaming of making this sweater from Rowan 36 ever since I first saw it. Since I've decided ix-nay on the gift making-ay once the holidays are through, I would price the yarn and see how much this beauty would cost. Holy beans and rice for three months, Batman! So I want to know, what is the most expensive sweater you have ever made? Just for the yarn, not the time, sweat, and inevitable blood and tears. I think I have to kiss this sweater goodbye until Lib and I make our millions, but I am still considering this one. Not cheap, but not spirit cracking, I need a second mortgage on my house bank busting either.
Pics tomorrow. We are going to a neighborhood thing, then off to Starbucks where Aunt Boobies is making me a Gingerbread Latte (I loving having an in at the Buck), and trick-or-treating with friends. Halloween definitely gets better with age.
