Knitting much at all, Mary?

Why yes, actually, I have been knitting! I finished the secret thing, and it is soft as a kitten, and I feel like running back to the store and buying a million more balls of that yarn.

But I won't, because I am making fair progress on Elaine's red dress, and I know I must keep going. It might not look like much, but I'm knitting it in the round, so really, imagine twice as much! Just keep knitting, knitting, knitting, just keep knitting... I'm still keen to finish this for NaKniSweMo.

And I also know that I am going yarn shopping next weekend to find some lovely wool to make a hat to match my new coat. Totally distractable, I am. But you know, I would rather knit a hat than just about anything, actually! A hat is the perfect thing to show off yarn, the perfect gift -- oh, no, dishcloths are the perfect gift, aren't they... Anyways, I love a hat. But right now I'm working on a dress. Right. (Gives head a little shake....)

I just learned about the the November calendar contest.

We have 3 calendars: the Toronto garbage collection calendar; one that the kids made at our school in England; and Arthur's airplane calendar.

November is not the best month for any of these!

Neither of my children is represented in the school calendar this month, and the airplane calendar has the Spitfire next month. And garbage collection -- well, that's just dull no matter what, isn't it?

And Torontonians, go vote Monday!
