No Crochet

Well things are not going great no crochet this week and I really need to crochet. I have all those dishcloths to finish. I also tried to start a scarf this week but could not figure out the pattern. It is a ripple scarf and I don't think I will be able to get the pattern I took the book to a woman a work and she is trying to figure out the pattern. While she is working on this I think I will try another pattern from another book. This weekend I will force myself to to work on dishcloths. It has been a long week and I am glad tomorrow is Friday. I had to get the car inspected today and I brought tires for the car today. After Christmas I have to big projects planned the first is the graphic granny afghan and the second Bernat Super Stripes Zig-Zag Blanket, I really like the patten and I love the red & black also like the blue & black so we shall see which color I use first. I think the red & black my daughter's school colors. I have to make a blanket for my daughter but she wants blue and green and I have to find just the right blue and green. I found out today that I am not getting the book Getting Started Crochet that I ordered I have been given a refund by the person on that I ordered the book from. I reordered the book today from someone else because the person I ordered from did not have another book. So my dreams of getting a new crochet book are postponed for at least another two weeks. Oh well nothing to to do but wait. Happy crocheting and knitting.

Long weekend is over back to work tomorrow.

Well it's the Sunday after Thanksgiving and I have to go back to work tomorrow. Oh well that's just the way it is when you live the life of a poor woman work, work, and more work. I did not get to shop on black Friday no funds I did however spend 1 hour walking the mall at the 1 am opening. I did find on Saturday the 2007 crochet pattern a day calendar made a trip to Costco and A C Moore. A C Moore had Patons Classic Wool Merino on sale for $3.87 regular price $5.67 I brought some of it to make a scarf for my sister and the rest just because I wanted to build my stash. They also have some beautiful 100% wool on discount for $6.67 that is around $11.00 something per skein regular price maybe they will still have some in a couple of weeks very pretty yarn but not a lot on the skeins and you would need several skeins to make a good scarf. I have not crochet since last Wednesday and I really need to get back to work on the dishcloths and potholders I plan to make for Christmas gifts. I need to move on to the scarf for my sister and I need a nice skull cap for a man for my brother in law and my nephew. I brought yarn to make my nieces scarfs also I plan to make the one skein scarf from Stitch N' bitch the happy hooker it is a quick scarf. I spent most of Friday,Saturday and today raking leaves and this was only the front and the sides of the house I still have the backyard left. Well at least it was a nice warm weekend and I did not have to rake in the cold, I can't say the same for next weekend when I start the back unless it's raining. Happy crocheting and knitting.
