Cuttlefish quickly take on the colors of whatever is below them.

So just for fun I made a point of wearing colors that matched the yarns I wanted to play with while knitting mine.

They have prominent W-shaped eyelid-looking things that tend to have a lighter layer above, so after nine attempts at graphing out how to do that I finally got one I was happy with. But I did not swatch it. Maybe I should have.

I guffawed when I stopped to take a good look after the last eye stitches were actually done.

And then I had to explain to my millennial daughter what I meant by Tammy Faye Bakker’s eyelashes. My husband chimed in with, “She made Dolly Parton look not made up.”

Meantime, the ballots are good (I added a note to yesterday’s post to make it easy for me to find in four years should I need to remember re the signature question–the answer I got may be specific to my county, though), the ballots are in, and I can’t tell you how good it feels that we have done our part to make our beloved country a better and more hopeful place.

I remember really messy t-shirt that read: I ran into Tammy Faye at the mall 🙂

I checked online, and my ballot is listed as having been counted. Yay! Santa Clara is supposed to have about twice the turnout of San Francisco. Something like 1,002,000.

We should move to the Australian system – vote or you get fined!

Well, I love the fish, eyelashes or no!

Glad you got the voting done. Mine is in and accepted and counted, hooray.

I love the eyelashes!! isn’t it amazing that they copy what is *under* them. Just. So. Cool.

Your Canadian neighbour (that’s me) thanks you for voting. I am praying pretty hard up here.

Getting ready to watch the debate. Will be interested to hear your take.
