Getting ready for Christmas. The tree is now up. The stockings are hung by the chimney with care. The wreath is getting lights today, then it will be hung up on the front door. Also I am getting ready for the anticipated Christmas visit of my nephew, Merlin and his new bride, Jennifer, so I am doing a major clear out of "stuff". Also, my Da should be joining us. Thus far there are four big blue Ikea shopping bags of stuff and not nearly done. Le Sigh Enorme. Too, I am getting ready for a new round of an art exchange in a Moleskine with my International Moleskine Exchange group from Ravelry.com. I am really excited for this new round. We took a hiatus for 2012 and I missed my Moley mail. I ordered something special for the ladies in the group, which I won't share here as yet, since more than a few of the participants read this blog. This Moley has been on travels before. It is a themed one. It was started the year of the 200th anniversary of Edgar Allan Poe's birthday and the 250th anniversary of Robert Burns' birthday, so the theme is Ravens and Roses. This will be it's third go ~ round and hopefully it will be filled up completely this g-round. As well, as getting ready to re-read an Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon for the Ravelry book themed swap to begin in 2013.

I think there are three things every American has to or should do. 1. Vote! No matter what your politics, you must exercise your privilege to vote. If you don't vote, don't complain to me. No matter whether your candidate or party wins or no, you exercised your privilege. 2. Answer your Jury Summons: Everyone should serve on a jury at some point in their life. I haven't had the privilege as I have only been called twice and sent home both times as I am a certified paralegal and know enough to be dangerous, LOL. 3. If you can, run for political office and learn better the fine details of how your government works.

I did it! I posted a photograph every day for 30 days. Woo~hoo. I did a few extra posts as well for significant events, like the one to commemorate 9/11 and another one for Pinterest Make it Monday.

The pattern to make this shawl was my purchase on Wednesday. I found it on Pinterest.com first and then went to Ravelry.com to look at it in further detail. I think I will make it in some of my handspun yarns as I have 4 different shades of yarn I can work with.
