Simple Pleasures

Inspired by Deborah's hat binge, I knit up a Bobble Hat Saturday while watching Godzilla Contra Mechagodzilla on Telefutura (original in Japanese, with dubbing in Spanish and random written words in English). It's worked in Kureyon 185, so I'm counting it toward Norovember.

Bobble Hat

On Sunday, I stopped at Stix-n-Stitches for [cough] more yarn – and met Deborah! It's so good to meet a fellow knitblogger IRL. She was wearing a hat, of course. (Alas, I left my digicam at home.)

I love my new hat, although it's still a bit too warm for wool (if you watched coverage of the NYC Marathon, you know that Central Park is still mostly green). But some Bike Helmet Ear Warmers would be nice on morning and evening rides.

The New Jersey General Election is tomorrow – polls are open from from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. The entire state legislature is up for election and there are four ballot questions. One of the ballot questions is so controversial, it's been tied up in court. If you're in NJ and don't know what I'm referencing, better read up and vote – the matter is far too important to be decided by motivated fringe voters.

Nice hat!

Thanks for the info. I thought maybe the polls closed at 7:00 and hub wouldn't be able to vote, but 8:00 p.m. is totally do-able.

I was a little perplexed as to why the "idiot" language issue is made it onto the ballot. Must be some NJ process I'm not aware of. I hate having to re-learn every state's nuances each time we move!

Nice hat! You bet I'll be voting!!! I take my son into the voting booth with me so he's learning about voting, etc while I'm brainwashing him to my way of thinking!

Makes me wonder what you think is fringe.

Is Deb a sweetie? I think we met yesterday at stix. I think you came in later, I should have introduced myself. I think my shyness kicked in towards the end of the day (ironic).

What a cute hat. Thanks for the ear warmer link, though I wish the picture was clearer and that there was a diagram. But it sounds like what I need on these increasingly chilly rides.

Cute cute hat!

I love that you were watching a double translated movie. The hat is great! Maybe it will be cool enough later this week to wear it.
