While I'm working away on a definately GRAY sweater for my daughter, I did knit this afghan square (and several others in various colors) to contribute to a group called
Close Knit Hugs which all of you probably already know about (if not, go check them out!).
Anyway, I'm especially touched that some of the afghans from this group will be going to some of those little towns in Kansas that have been nearly wiped off the map. We drove through that area of Kansas a few years ago on our way from Springfield, MO, to Denver, with a little side trip to Kinsley, KS, where my dad's aunt (nearly 100 years old) lived. I wonder how much of this area will just die away now that it has been so destroyed.
On another track of thought, I'm totally disgusted with the Democrats and the way that some of them voted on the war funding. Biden has now totally ruled himself out of my consideration, and Hillary was a complete coward .... funny how she wasn't in the room when the "C's" of the roll were called ... so essentially her vote had no impact whatever except to look good politically....at least Obama voted at the right time and the right way (IMHO), its not his fault his name starts with an "O"!
I'm already good and sick of the whole process, 2009 can't come soon enough!
