I finished my Grandmother's Favorite Dishcloth early this morning and then around noon today I weaved my ends and to a picture of the dishcloth. It is a great pattern and easy pattern and it knits up very quickly. I have already started another. I love ombre, self stripping , and variegated yarns. They make sure beautiful patterns. Well tomorrow is move in day at my daughter's dorm and I think today is move in day for my niece at hers I tried to call them today and I did not get an answer so I don't know if they just did not answer the phone or they are busy with moving things. I know what moving day means to me it means I have to struggle to get my daughters refrigerator in my car I have accomplished this more than one time so I know I can get it in the car. I am sure she will need her toaster oven.

I am so happy that it is Friday and the weekend. It has been a long week. The only bright spot about today was the fact that it is payday. So for a few minutes I had a little money in my checking account. I paid a few bills and did something I should not have done and I brought a book on cd. New Moon, by Stephenie Meyer read by Ilyana Dadushin an unabridged production. I love to listen to books on cd. I read the book first but I just had to listen to someone read the book. It is very relaxing. I can knit while I listen. I have started a dish cloth tonight. Grandmother's Favorite Dishcloth designer Unknown. I am using Lily The Original Sugar 'n Cream color Early American Ombre, the pattern states you can use either size 6 or 7 needles. I am using size 7 . It is going very well it is an easy pattern. It should knit up very quickly. Last weekend while listening to Twilight on cd the first book in the series by Stephenie Meyer New Moon is the second in the series. I knit a scarf I am posting a picture of the scarf. I used Lion brand thick and quick yarn I lost the band around the yarn so I can't remember the color. The model in picture is my friend Dorothea Vaughan.

Its taking a while because I put it down to read and start a new dishcloth, Grid Pattern Dishcloth from Cheapknittingpatterns.com I finished weaving the ends this afternoon. I started a new project early this morning while listening to Twilight on cd the first book of the Twilight Series. A scarf a Beginner's Garter Stitch Scarf, a free knitting pattern from about.com. http://knitting.about.com/od/knittingpatterns/p/garterscarf.htm . A very easy pattern. I am posting a picture of the Grid Pattern Dishcloth. It is Sunday night and I am not ready for a new work week. My daughter was home yesterday for a few hours we went to lunch at Rock-ola and we both ordered a drink wow still can't believe that I was able to order a drink in Asheboro. I have been wondering since Asheboro has liquor by the drink and can sale in restaurants does this mean grocery stores can sale beer and wine on Sunday can the restaurants sale mixed drinks? Does the city or county have to set up rules or is Asheboro like Randleman and no beer and wine sales allowed?
