It's Saturday Night

Its Saturday night and not a lot to do. I am watching TV and talking to my daughter. I need to be working on the baby afghan I am making for a woman that works with my daughter. She wants a afghan for a friend or relative that's having a baby. My plan is to make a round ripple afghan but I am having trouble with the pattern. The afghan is not laying flat. I have ripped out my work several times. I have changed hook sizes 3 times. I plan to rip out what I have done so far this time only 5 rounds, and try an H hook. Just in case this does not work I plan to make a 5 point granny square this one I know how to do I have made 2 already. I plan to use pastel green and blue its for a boy. I am not giving up on the round ripple but just working on a back up plan since I am getting paid and the woman I am making the afghan for does not care what pattern I use just the colors. Spent another great day in Greensboro with my daughter and mother , I really like Greensboro the shopping and the restaurants. The shopping because you have more to choice from the restaurants for the same reason and because Greensboro has liquor buy the drink, this appeals to me because sometimes I like to have a glass of wine or mixed drink with my meal. I am responsible and have a driver who doesn't drink. I live in Asheboro and I really wish we had beer and wine sales and liquor buy the drink, I feel that I would have the right to choose. Its not like I have a drink every time I go out but once again I have the choice. That is very important a right to choose. I am posting a picture of the afghan.

Sunday Night Once Again

Well it's Sunday Night again and I have the blues. Only a few more hours and I will be back at work. I attended a candlelight party, it was nice I didn't order anything. When I wake up in the morning I will start the countdown to the weekend. I ripped out the start to my afghan again and tried again to get it started but it was no good I just cant get it right. So I have started another Lovely Lilacs only mine will be Lovely Reds because I have red not lilac, never the less if this one goes better than the last one I tried it will be okay. I didn't manage to get my dishcloths made this weekend maybe I will start tomorrow. Well I didn't win the lottery so this means I cant retire early and build my dreamhouse at the beach. I did learn a new stitch today the picot. Some may say it is an easy stitch but until today I this stitch was not my friend. All you have to do is Ch 3, sc in the first st of ch-3, pretty silly not to be able to do that but at first it sounds a lot harder than it is to accomplish.
