Pumpkins, Politics and Gnomes... oh my!

A new little guy appeared in my house over the weekend:
The gnome pattern is ready to go and I'm just waiting for the nice folks at Ravelry to add me as a seller to I can upload it.

I seem to be all consumed with politics and the election now that there are just eight days to go. I almost cannot believe that the day is almost here. There are big plans for the big day. I'm going to get up early and go and vote, then Bill and GL and I are headed up to New Hampshire to volunteer to do whatever the Obama people need us to do. We'll head back into town and get over to PCT early to stake out some space for the party. We (Knitting Liberally and Drinking Liberally) are co-hosting with Hampshire County Obama'08,The Northampton Democratic City Committee and the Young Dems. Everyone is welcome! Jaz will be broadcasting live on WRSI from the party. Free buffet with a cash bar. Free WiFi if you need it.

The all consuming, impending election was a driving force at the pumpkin carving party Tom and Tina threw on Saturday night.
Tom and Tina have a cauldron full of pumpkin carving tools.
Tom finished first.
My 'Ooobama' pumpkin in progress.
Tina scraping the last of the guts out.
Lots of guts.
Tom set up for the big reveal.
GL and Abigail waited patiently for the candles to be lit.
Do you think we got our message across?
