It’s election day here in California–well "special" election day. After enduring months and months of nasty, mean spirited political ads, we can get back to normal. Honestly, it makes you want to vote no on every ballot initiative. Ick. Luckily I spent yesterday at Disneyland rather than at work (oh yes I really did), so my complaints with life are minuscule at present.
I’ve been knitting on my alpaca clapotis as I’ve not had time to get more yarn for the one one armed sweater. It’s a fine traveling project and it may even get done when there is need for warm garments here in nor Cal.
I did notice yet another new magazine from Phildar just today and thought y’all would want to know . Collections Hiver 2005/2006 looks nice, a few good designs and ideas. Those magazines have been coming fast and furious, no? My two faves on first inspection are the baroque sweater at left, an interesting interpretation–though the kitty dingly ball belt would probably be omitted. The turquoise one on the right just looks like something I’d actually wear. I mean, how many times do you make a sweater and end up not wearing it? More often then I’d like. Remember if you swing on by the Phildar site, they are still blurring out their model’s faces–creepy and slightly nauseating.
