Youth gone mild?

Nothing to add, really. Simply wanted to remind people that 84 years ago today, the 19th Amendment was added to our Constitution, giving American women the right to vote. Just think for a minute how hard and long women had to campaign for the simple right to vote. Now think about how many people don't even bother to exercise that right, especially younger folks. I've met too many kids who say, "my vote doesn't really matter;" and that may be true, but if every person who thought along those lines went to the booths on voting day, it would make a HUGE difference.
It's not hard. Make yourself heard.
I'll get off my soapbox now.

Supah Fantas-tiik!

urg, one of my classes got the chop. I needed that class, admin. folks. *sigh* I'm really coming to loathe the school system.
Here's a fun and exciting list of my projects, both current ("on the needle") and upcoming. If I don't write them down I have a tendency to forget.
Most basic hat (70%)
Kitty Bed (82%)
Backpack/purse thing (68%)
Dia scarf (gonna be a b-day present)
Slytherin scarf (yay! Have found perfect yarn!)
Awesome sweater for me
Piano scarf

ugh, three scarves up and coming. I hate doing scarves. The Kitty Bed has been put on hold, 'cause my cat doesn't need it anymore, so I just do a couple rows 'whenever I feel like it.' I always have several projects going at once, as I get bored doing the same one. It's rather stupid on my part, because fiddling around with a bunch at once means they all take at least twice as long to complete than they would if I concentrated on each in turn.
I'm off to eat cereal and hunt for another open class. Good night.

Enter at own risk?

Alright! I'm up and semi-running. Welcome to Lemon Drop! Thanks for wandering in. I finally succumbed to peer pressure and Laura/Rira-type blog-envy and created my own *shudder* blog (I hate that word). This will mostly be dedicated to my knitting hobby (and growing obsession), but other randomness will make its way in, I'm sure. I'll try to maintain a purpose to the madness, though, and keep the blog-typical inane whining to a minimum. I highly encourage visitor input, be it comments, knitting tips, recommendations, mockery, or insults. Actually, I'd prefer if you left the harsher insults at home; thanks anyway.
I think that'll do for starters. Hopefully I shall soon have pictures and projects up for your viewing pleasure, but for now I'm off to class, yay.
