Just bake-cause

The lace hat I was already working on yesterday when Representative Cleaver was speaking is finished. The cabled hat that I dropped two stitches at the needle switch awhile ago is now finally ripped way back and restarted: he’s getting a cabled hat and it’s back to halfway done so far.

Had quite a few laughs at the typos in the closed captions during tonight’s convention. John Kerry, it claimed, said: “We do batter where we must, peace where we can.”

That was even better than the spoken “a man and a woman” scrolling across the screen as “a minimum bomb.”  Let’s all go have that proverbial Army-fundraiser bake sale! (As the cold-war saying goes, it’ll be a great day when the schools get all the funding they need and the Army has to hold a bake sale.) Batter up! Bring on their just desserts! Robert Fulghum once wrote about how great it would be if we could stop wars by dropping from the planes colored paper and crayons, a bit of childhood delight revisited to make friends with the enemy below. I guess he’s saying we could let people have the means to draw down the fighting.

Add in some carrot pecan cake and some chocolate chip cookies, too, and surely you can’t go wrong with that.

(p.s. And maybe you’ve already seen this, but how many handknit lace fences are there out there? With thanks to Betsy Bowman for the heads-up.)

I clicked on that ink. *Stunning* fence. Almost makes me want to go outside and brave the chiggers…

I took the PostieBus all the way down the Outer Hebrides a few years ago, and if I can ever get back, I’d look for THAT fence!

Glad your cable hat is well underway but can’t miss the chance to recommend this no-cable needle version if you want an easy project sometime.

(Sorry non-ravelers can’t click)

that is an amazing piece of knitting!

(and my “moment” from last night was Gabby — wonderful to see her stand there and do the pledge!!)

Find the Today Show clip on yarn bombing from today’s broadcast. That was great too.

Oh my! I’ve got way too many projects going, but that fence……and just the other day we were talking about maybe building a decorative fence out front. Just might add it to the list.
