Oh, Oh, Oh it is the weekend

Well I made it until the end of the week. Friday and it is the weekend baby. I live for the weekend. I have nothing exciting planned for tonight. I came home from work watched The View and Dr Phil then a few things on tv. I am in bed at this time surrounded by knitting patterns and projects. I am having a hard time with the Wavy gravy pattern in the stitch'n bitch Nation pattern book by Debbie Stoller. I am not sure if it is because I am reading he pattern wrong or if I wait to late in the night to start the pattern. I just can't get it to come out right. I have cast on and ripped out several times in the last week. I will cast on again tomorrow, I re-read the pattern today and will re-read tomorrow. I am not sure where I am going wrong. I will pay a visit to Gate City Yarns tomorrow to get a few skeins of Lamb's Pride Bulky in M250 Cranberry Swirl to make a hat for my Daughter. I have a scarf going in that color using the beginner's basic II ribbed-for-Her-Pleasure scarf from Debbie Stoller's stitch' N bitch The Knitter's Handbook. So I plan to give her the scarf because she has a very pretty pea coat that will go great with the scarf and then knit a hat to match, the Hot Head hat on page 162 of the same book. I plan to use a solid color I think it will take only one more skein but just in case I will buy 2 maybe 3 better safe than sorry. I hope they still have the color in stock. It is so hard to work everything in that I would like to do. read,knit, blog and watch tv. My current reads Club Dead, by Charlaine Harris, Knitting Rules, by Stephanie Pearl-Mcphee, and Saved Folk in the House, by Sonnie Beverly. I guess I need to read a few pages and then knit a few rows. I knit a few row last night on my long running Bias scarf and the ribbed-ribbed-for-Her-Pleasure scarf, read a page or two in club dead. Happy Crafting. I will keep you updated on my progress this weekend.

I know what you mean girl about it being hard to fit it all in. I am reading three books now and working on two crochet projects and trying to study for mid-terms. LOL

I want to be doing some Christmas crafting early for a change this year but I need to wait until I can go buy some yarn up for some of the projets.

P.S. The hat and scarf will be beautiful and I am sure your daughter will feel good every time she puts them on! :)
