You may recall my rant a few months ago about the Virginia Republican Primary Oath. Today was election day, I went, requested my Republican ballot and braced myself. .. . . but no oath was presented for me to sign. I thought maybe it died a quiet death, so I googled it when I came home. Nothing says the request was repealed, so now I wonder if my city just refused to administer it. . . or forgot it . . . or something else altogether. I'm curious to know if any other Virginians who voted today had to sign anything. Let me know (if you are willing to share, of course!). Unfortunately, I'm really not enamored with any candidate on either side, which will certainly make for an interesting November.
In school news, my redo of Maine was met with rave reviews. This is good, as I couldn't stomach the thought of doing it again! Whadda ya think? We also got our partners assigned and the fates really are testing me. I got paired with the one person no one in class wanted and I KNOW she will end up needing lots of hand holding, which I am now obliged to give since my grade is intertwined with hers. Technically we are evaluated on our own, but our rooms have to be related and if our partners room/drawing stinks, it will drop my grade down by one letter. UGH! In the grand scheme, I know it's good to work on my patience, but I still don't want to! Also a request for help from anyone out there familiar with Montessori. I got assigned to design a bedroom to be shared by two little girls. The 'client' believes in the Montessori method and so I need to incorporate that into the space. I know very little about it, and I've requested some books from the library, but if anyone has suggestions or info about it, I'd love to hear!
School is really cramping my knitting time. We're nearly half way through February and I'm really not very close to finishing much of anything. At least I haven't started any new projects! Turns out the foot on Jake's sock was sufficiently large, so I'm working through the foot. . . just a couple more inches and then the toe to finish that. I think, to break some of the monotony I'm going to cast on for the 2nd cowboy sock and the 2nd jeezny cricket sock so I can mix it up a bit. My mini-goal for tonight is to sew the lining in to my felted bag to check that off the list!
