World Wide Knit In Public Day!

Well I went to Southern Pines, NC to participate in WWKIPD. I had a great time meet some very nice ladies and a very nice young lady all of them great knitter's. We sat under a very big Magnolia tree and a few other's right by the downtown farmers market. I think the music went along with the farmers market. The WWKIPD was sponsored by Bella Filati the local yarn shop in Southern Pines. If you live in NC and you want to do a nice weekend road trip you need to make your way to downtown Southern Pines and Bella Filati! Everyone at the WWKIPD and Bella Filati very friendly. The shop has a lot of great yarn they had my favorite Noro love the stuff. To visit the website Sign up for the newsletter and check out all the great yarn and classes. I have wanted to visit the shop for such a long time since right after I learned how to knit. Then we went to visit my cousin Rose and we went to Ruby Tuesday and had a great salad. After that off to my Aunt's house after a couple of hours went had dinner with them and paid a visit to the nursing home to see my Grandmother. Pretty good day today. I worked on my sock while knitting in public. That's me in the peach shirt.

Middle of the week

Well another long day at work. Then I went to my nieces graduation she graduated from High School today. She was accepted at Fayetteville State University and in late August she will be on her way to school. I did not get a chance to get a picture of her in her cap and gown. At the last minute the school decided to hold the graduation in the gym and I had to sit in the over flow section and did not make it in the gym. I had to watch on screen in the auditorium. At least they had air conditioning. So not to much on the knitting front. I Will spend a little time knitting. I need to do a little reading tonight. Picture of fish my daughter took during the cruise.

I vote that we stop Monday's!

Well it's Monday night and I am watching Big Bang, blogging and worked a few rows on my dishcloth. Long day at work, very busy. Went out and looked at the garden after work an things are looking good. I will watch the news tonight and if there is no rain in the forecast for tomorrow I will need to water when I get home from work. I noticed that the plants grow quickly once you have them in the ground. I really don't think it would be to late for me to plant more tomato's or squash. I read a blog yesterday and the guy on the blog put out a few roma's and zucchini just last week. I paid a visit to Ravelry and Gate City Yarns has invited people to come to downtown Greensboro for World Wide Knit in Public Day. I think I will try and go for a few hours maybe bring my unfinished sock and to work and then maybe I can finish the first sock and start the second. Still reading By Hook or By Crook, by Betty Hechtman. On payday I will get Maggie Sefton's lasted in the knitting series Dropped Dead Stitches at least I think that's the name. This is a picture of the Pingtung Long Eggplant I planted in the garden.

Busy weekend.

Spent most of the day on Saturday trying to clean out my garage. It has Lot's of stuff in it mostly stuff on one uses anymore. A lot of the stuff is my Mother's when she moved in with me in 2006 she had stuff from her house. She moved out of her house because she had to put her Mother my Grandmother in a nursing home. I get along well with my Mother so it is not to much of a problem that we live together now. I was hoping however that I would get a year or tow of living by my self before she moved in the house. I did not only a few months. I am getting off track a cousin of ours needed a place to live so she let her move into her house since she had moved in with me so last year she had to clean out the house in order for the cousin to move in and although she Say's she gave and threw a lot of stuff away a lot of in landed in my garage. 2 sets of what I call Blue Willow dishes one set is for me and the other my daughter's not complete sets but lots of place setting. If I can one day I plan to try and complete set. I live not to far away from Replacements, LTD I think you can find just about any item you want or need to replace from thousands of china patterns. Then we went to Lowe's Hardware and picked up 2 eggplants one Black Beauty and one Green never heard of a Green eggplant until this week. I already have a Pingtung Long eggplant in the ground last year this eggplant was a good producer. We cooked out and I spent time reading By Hook or By Crook, by Betty Hechtman. It is a good read, I am on page 104 and really enjoying the book. I knit a few rows on my dishcloth and my daughter told me today that she wants some knit dishcloths for her new apartment. She said She needed to look through my yarn to see what colors she wanted me to use for the dishcloths. So that's about it for me.
