During times like these, it's a lot easier to tell who really believes in the "morals" of conservatives, and who just believe when it's convenient.

Where's the Outrage
When Bill Clinton parsed words, ("It depends on what the meaning of "is" is), the conservatives went bananas.

First of all, I do appreciate that there are thinking conservatives that read this web site who are equally as enraged by Karl Rove's weaseling.

But for those that aren't, I ask why not? Do they not see that Mr. Rove clearly destroyed a CIA operative's career to get back at her husband? And now that there seems to be less and less room for spinning the facts, he's getting even more slimy. And then the president and his mouthpiece (Scott McLellan) both support him and seemingly lie for him.

Even I was annoyed with Bill Clinton's picayune parsing of words.

Current Knitting
Things didn't go quite as well as I expected with the Wool/Hemp Pullover. I did get some work done on the sleeve, but not anywhere near as much as I expected.

I will continue to work on this during the week, but given the time I have for knitting lately during the week, I don't anticipated a lot of success.

I did get some additional work done on the new design, and I'm liking it a lot. If the initial stages of the garment are any indication, this sweater will be excellent.

Readers' Comments/Questions
Susan asks (via e-mail), "What's your opinion of Knitpicks' yarn? I get their snail mail catalog and have CONSIDERED ordering but haven't yet. I mean, if I don't like the yarn, I'm
stuck! Would you recommend their products?"

I've never ordered from them, and the yarn I did order, still hasn't arrived yet, so I'll let you know when I do.
