I'm not sure what the polls say, but if you count bumper stickers here in Michigan, McCain/Palin are definitely winning this state (and a lot of folks with their heads about to go firmly up their asses, in my less-than humble opinion will not be voting for Obama).
Last week and this week found me traveling around the East side of Michigan and in all my driving I saw many many many McCain/Palin bumper stickers, very few (maybe two) Obama/Biden bumper stickers and even one pokey idiot in the fast lane not going fast with a "NO OBAMA" sign taped inside her window.
Of course, it doesn't quell my worries when the hotel where I stay has Fox News playing in the morning in the area where they serve daily breakfast.
For all you Obama voters...please realize that this is not a done-deal yet. McCain, despite himself and his dreadful policies is moving up...at least as far as I can tell in Michigan.
I haven't had a boatload of time to knit, but I have made a little progress on the stranded sweater, and you can start to see a pattern emerging.
The yarn I'm using is a KnitPicks yarn called Palette. It's fingering weight and loosely double-plied. I have to admit, I love this yarn. It's soft and warm and is making a wonderful fabric so far. People will definitely want to fondle me when I wear this sweater.
