Great Saturday

Well had a great day today. Got up this morning and my Mother and I got dressed and went to Costco I love Costco and I wish I pay a monthly visit. I can't believe I did not try any sample's today. Big crowd today and The samples just did not appeal to me today. Left Costco and proceeded to Gate City Yarns brought the wrong yarn and signed up and paid for a sock knitting class. I did not discover I had the wrong yarn until I got home. I think I will take it back next weekend I did not notice that I picked up the worsted weight Lamb's Pride instead of the bulky right color wrong weight. Then after leaving the yarn shop we met my daughter and her boyfriend and Ganache Restaurant & Bakery we had a lot of fun. The she crab soup and shrimp and grits awesome. Hit Total Wine and Borders the came back to then depressing city of Asheboro. I have been watching tv, reading, visiting my favorite site on the web no knitting so far tonight. I might get in a row or two before the night is over. It is hard to work in all the things you want to do in a day. Happy crafting.

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.

Long weekend coming to a close

Well not a bad weekend and now it is coming to a close. I took today off from work. I had a few things to take care of today and then I met a very dear friend for lunch. I had a great time and I wish I could meet her ever week for lunch. I had to rip out the new scarf I cast on Saturday night well maybe early Sunday morning. Pattern found in the stitch n bitch. I brought 2 books this weekend Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, Knitting Rules! and Saved Folk in the House a novel by Sonnie Beverly. The scarf I cast on had to be ripped out. I will start again soon. I had a great day today.
