Here I am, warm and bundled on my way to the voting booth yesterday:
(It is actually Tuesday when I'm writing this...funny to think that when this post fires off, the results will be in!)
I had a slightly emotional moment at the polls, when I realized that my vote really mattered. I mean, if you're not in a swing state, it's hard to get too worked up over the presidential vote. But in Massachusetts, we had some powerful issues on the ballot...a tight Senate race, euthanasia, medical marijuana...
But there are other important things to talk about too...books, yarn...and maybe even some wool roving...
I'm loving my completed hoodie. It really gives me tunnel vision (perfect for an election!), so I probably won't use it on a daily basis. But I love that it keeps my face covered for the really brutal days. And the hood can be popped back to wear just a big, chunky scarf. Love. But I'm so excited to work on some new projects!
Since I last posted, I managed to finish Rowling's book and another by John Green, The Fault in our Stars. Seriously wonderful. I cried many times. And finished it quickly.
So I'm already on to other things...
I felted that little gnome up during my rainy day off last week, and I love him so much, I've already started another! You can find the tutorial here.
A Wizard of Earthsea is a book I feel I must have read when I was younger, but the first couple of chapters are still totally foreign to me. It's reminiscent of Tolkien...magical, but serious...and the literary landscape is really beautiful. I'm looking forward to getting more deeply immersed in it. Plus, there are three more in the series. Have you read them?
Don't forget to check out others linking up with Ginny!
