Another nailbiter, and an actual finish.

Warning: Liberal

Once again, I stayed up way too late watching election coverage, only to have things undecided when I went to bed. And when I woke up. But I'm certainly not complaining. I am in fact very happy. And still refreshing Google News every 30 seconds, of course. (CNN.com is blocked at work. This makes me very sad.)

I'm very proud of my state. We replaced both our Republican incumbents in the House with Democrats - one of whom is the first female who New Hampshire has sent to Congress. Our Democrat governor was reelected, and the Dems took both state houses and, I think, the executive council. It's nice to feel like my vote actually did help change something.

I was basically in a news blackout from 5-10pm last night, which was rather stressful. Luckily, a wonderful friend called a little after nine to let me know about the first wave of good news: Santorum and DeWine and Bass out, Lynch still in (but we expected that). I listened to NPR from 10-10:25 while driving home and then was glued to CNN until one. Seeing Wolf Blitzer call the House was a nice moment, as were seeing the Virginia (I hope I hope) and Missouri races start to turn.

But, of course, it's not over. It probably won't be over until almost Christmas. Sigh. Something that is done:

My new scarf! Finally! I finished it during D&D last night and wove in the ends while getting my CNN fix this morning. I adore it (except for the weird puckering thing it does in a few spots). And, of course, now that it's done, it's warmer here than it's been in weeks. Figures.

I love the scarf! It's beautiful. Did you do triangles and join or cast on and decrease on one side, then pick up or is it more like domino knitting with the decreases coming in the center? I'm intrigued.

The scarf looks beautiful! I can't wait to see it in person.

And yay for getting rid of Bass. I don't really have the right to comment since I didn't vote, but I'm glad he's out, anyway.

The scarf looks lovely! Definitely block it -- that should smooth out the puckers, and make it officially perfect ;-)

Gorgeous scarf. I know you told us before, but refresh my memory: yarn? pattern?
