There’s only one word I feel like typing today today.
Today’s the day.
If you haven’t yet done the great deed of democracy, just hop in the old jalopy and go. Standing in line to vote is one of the greatest feelings in the world. Take a sock to knit. Greet a neighbor.
Once you’ve got your “I Voted” sticker, go celebrate with a cherry limeade at Sonic, or a kale cider green slurpy thing, or whatever little celebration feels good.
I voted a couple of weeks ago at Casa Azafrán, a community center down the road from MDK World Headquarters.
It’s currently home to nine non-profit partners who provide opportunities—ranging from health, financial, and legal services to cultural, culinary and educational enrichment—in Nashville’s most international and ethnically diverse district.
I’ve been to two epic bar mitzvah parties there. I’ve seen a paella cookoff that got a little heated. Casa Azafrán is a beehive. I love voting there.
Afterwards, I celebrated by snagging a banh mi across the street at InterAsian Market & Deli.
Meanwhile . . .
Gossammerrrrrrrrrrrrr. Joji Locatelli’s Gossamer is proving to be a highlight of my 2022 knitting efforts.
I’d make faster work of it if I stopped holding it up to the light and sighing.
So much sighing.
Here’s the double-stranded Gossamer in gray—the original weight specified in the pattern. Beautiful, more opaque than the single-stranded version. This Kidsilk Haze in Turquoise continues to delight.
Here’s my post about the tweaks I’m making to the pattern.
PS Watch Snippets for news of our next MDK Joji Knitalong hangout Zoom on Monday, November 14, 5:00 Eastern. Breakout rooms return! Mix and mingle, talk about your project, all that sort of thing.
