Back in 2013, I did a series of posts of selected patterns for wedding knitting. If you've got a wedding coming up you may find some project ideas that inspire you, whether you're to be one of the newlyweds, part of the wedding party, a guest... or someone who prefers to send your regrets, stay home, and make something in black.:)

If by some chance Bernie wins the 2020 election, he will be 79 by the time he is sworn in as POTUS. He is good on the economy, but he's out of his depth on foreign policy and rather seriously behind the curve on social justice issues. I don't think his running this time is a good idea, as there are much better candidates and it seems like a waste of resources.
