Saturday Shopping Trip

I made a trip to Stitch Point in Greensboro today it is a very nice yarn shop it was my 2nd time visiting the shop and just like the first the ladies in the shop treated me very nice and helped me a lot I went to the shop to get yarn for a Gryffindor Scarf but they did not have the colors I wanted for the scarf and I was told that they shop owner plans to stop carrying Cascade due to high shipping cost. I understand stand she does plan to start and had some of the yarn that compares to Cascade that can by used to make the scarf but I did not see the colors I needed. I did buy yarn for 3 projects I want to work on in the One Skein Wonders pattern book. The projects are One-Skein Scarf page 67, Ela's Favorite Hat page 126, and Coffee Mitt page125. So my next knitting lesson instead of working the Gryffindor Scarf I will work the One-Skein Scarf. I paid a visit to Barnes & Noble just to make sure my name was on the list for the Harry Potter book it was on the list and I am glad I stopped by because I found out they plan to start giving out the wrist bands at 9:00 am so this might mean 2 trips to Greensboro on Friday. I will need to leave the house by at least 8:15 to get to the store by 9:00 get my wrist band and come home. I asked a friend if he would meet me in Greensboro around 7:00 go to dinner and then go to the store to sit in the parking lot and wait the party starts at 7:00 that is for the little kids. I love to go early and see al the people dressed like the characters. I am working on my 2nd Bias Scarf.
