Ranting and Raving

So I need to rant before I share some knitting related stuff. I've been following the Andrea Yates retrial on Court TV for about 4 weeks now. I watch for a few hours a day while knitting and Syd naps. After considering everything I have heard I am convinced she knew what she was doing despite her postpartum psychosis and should be reconvicted of the murders of her 5 children. Today she was found innocent by reason of insanity. My heart aches for those children who were drowned one by one by their own mother while they fought for their little lives. And what about the now ex-husband...why is he not on trial? He now admits that he thought Andrea was pyschotic so why did he leave them alone in her hands if he in fact did think that at the time? Should he also not pay for protecting their lives? In a way I am so glad this trial is over because I've had sleepless nights thinking about those beautiful children and how they suffered.
Rest in peace sweet babies and may justice be paid someday. :(

On a much, much lighter note, I've been knitting up a storm while frantically watching this trial and will have some pics in a few days of several FOs. What has helped me knit like crazy are a few new accessories I've acquired lately. :)

The Royal Ball Winder...bliss. This bad boy saves me so much time.

...and my Denise kit. DENISE. DENISE. How I love thee! This is the BEST interchangeable circular needle set of all time and I got it thru a trade at Knitty Coffeeshop BRAND SPANKING NEW! LOVE.

Soon to follow, my first project on my Denise's...a cotton hat from Last Minute Knitted Gifts made from Mission Falls 1824 Cotton in Aubergine for my niece, Katilin who will be 4 in a few weeks!

Have a great Wednesday everyone.

I completely agree about Rusty Yates, it is so wrong that he wasn't held responsible.

I can't wait to see the hat! :)

I'm ashamed he's in the NASA family!
