Make a Change…

There will be no knitting photos tonight. I forgot when I wrote that that I still needed to go and vote. I got to the polls late, so the line was long. Of course, I had a sock to knit in my bag, and I worked almost a whole repeat while I stood in line. When I was called to turn in my ticket so I could go to a voting machine, I made the last stitch on the needle as I walked forward. The nice gentleman that was assisting me asked what I was knitting, and commented that the yarn was a beautiful color.

It is always nice when someone unexpected notices your work and comments on it. It brought a smile to my face as I cast my ballot.

I considered photographing the sock with the ballot machine, but I was afraid that someone would wig out over it and decided it probably wasn’t a good idea. My phone makes a lovely chiming noise whenever you snap a photo, so you can not possibly be stealth with it. Pretend there is a photo of a sock with the ballot machine here.

Unfortunately, it appears that my fears have come true and the two independent governor candidates have pulled enough votes away from Chris Bell that Gov. Good Hair will be in office for a few more years. He doesn’t have a clear majority, but it still doesn’t look good. We will see what the morning brings. From my limited understanding of Texas government, I don’t know that the governor has a lot of power. What I am more curious about is the outcome of the national elections, and the change that it may have on our future.

We were jumping up and down because Bell did so much better than we expected–how sad that our expectations are so low.

I was surprised by how many Republicans told me that they refused to vote for Perry.

I’m just surprised that you had to wait on line long enough to get to knit! My girls insist on pushing the buttons for me (in oh so many ways) so I didn’t go to vote until 6 o’clock…and there were only 2 people in front of me. I’ve read about people knitting in lines at the bank and voting, but don’t ever wait on these so….I knit at home!
