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.

Well its Friday and I am so happy about that I don't know what to do but drink wine and knit. I have finished my first Bias Scarf and started another in a variegated yarn. One more week and the last book in the Harry Potter Series will be out I have my name on the list for the book and I will be at Barnes and Noble at midnight to get my book I am sure it will be a wild and crazy event. On Wednesday I went to see Harry Potter and the Order Of the Phoenix it was a great movie with wonderful special effects. I would like to go see it again this weekend. I plan to visit Stitch Point tomorrow to buy the yarn for a Gryffindor House Scarf made out of Cascade Yarns. I will post a picture of the yarn if I find it at the shop. When I post these pictures they just might be the last ones I post for awhile because I have lost my battery charger for my camera. I will need to order another charger. I am posting a picture of my finished Bias Scarf and the start of another Bias Scarf.

Summer, Summer, Summertime!

It is HOT!!!!! I thought is would rain today but it did not at least not yet, it was getting cloudy on the way home from work dark clouds and I heard thunder. I thought a storm was on the way but what happens after I am home for a few minutes the sun comes back out and no rain. I am not sure if I need to water the garden again tonight or wait of the rain. I have not worked on my Bias Scarf today but I did go back to work today so that is the reason. I have pictures of some of my flowers and I plan to post I am sorry. I just love to post pictures. Big Love on HBO tonight @ 9:00. I will knit during Big Love. I have my tickets brought for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix then on the 21st the last book. I hope Harry does not die. I brought Charmed Knits Projects For Fans Of Harry Potter, by Alison Hansel. I want to make the scarf and hat. Well only 4 more days until the weekend.

Sunday Morning and it's back to work tomorrow.

Well my nice long weekend is almost over. I still have not worked on my UFO'S but I did work on the Bias Scarf it is coming along nicely. I think I will pay a visit to Books-A-Million to see if the have pattern book I think is Charmed knitting for Harry Potter Fans, well I will know it when I see it because of the cover. I spent most of yesterday cleaning my bedroom it looks better but I still have a lot to do to get the room clean I could be on an episode of Clean House if the came to NC. I am posting pictures of the cucumber that I picked out of the garden. I hope we get rain soon the tomato plants are looking a little yellow they have lots of tomato's on them but it will be awhile before the start turning red. Happy crocheting and knitting.
