It's Friday Night!

Well it's Friday night and I am at home sitting in front of the t.v. watching 20/20, and surfing the net. I have not worked on my sock today. I will read later tonight. Spent some time sitting out on the deck very nice and relaxing. I am fighting the urge to start any new projects before I finish my socks. I want to start a scarf . I am really trying to be strong. A display at Bella Filati. I love chickens.

Friday Eve!

It's Thursday night and I can't believe I still have on more day before the weekend. I came home today and relaxed for a few minutes and then ate dinner, then spent time working on my long suffering sock project. I plan to read a few minutes before I go to sleep. So I think I will give myself at least a B for working on my sock almost everyday this week. Happy crafting!

Keeping a promise

I made a promise to myself that I would spend sometime every night knitting a few row's on my sock. So far I so good spent some time this evening after work knitting a few rows on the sock. I have been reading and visiting Ravelry and crochetville tonight. I don't think I will knit anymore tonight getting ready to get in bed and relax do some reading. I need to get Death by Cashmere read by the 26th. I should go to the bookstore and by the book so I can have the pattern at the end of the book. In a previous post I talked about my visit to Bella Filati in Southern Pines in a previous post. The picture is of the window at Bella Filati.

I feel that there is not enough time in a day to do the things that I want to do. First out of necessity I have to spend 8 hours per day working. Gotta pay the mortgage,car payment, and keep up the utilities. Then by the time you come home unwind for an hour or two it does not leave you with much time for reading, knitting, and blogging. So little time so much to accomplish. I made myself spent time knitting a few rows on my sock while I listened to this week's lionbrand podcast. I am determined to get both socks done before the end of the summer and start a new pair. Went by the library on Monday and picked up my interlibrary loan, Death by Cashmere, by Sally Goldenbaum it is A Seaside Knitters Mystery. I did not realize so many author's wrote knitting mysteries. I love the books because they don't go all CSI and at the end of the book some add either a recipe and pattern or just a pattern. I started the book last night and I think it will make another great summer read. It is better if you can buy the books that way later on you can try the pattern checking the book out of the library does not give you enough time. The flower is Spider Flower, Cleome Sparkler Hybrid (hassleriana) a very nice woman that I work with gave me a few plants. It is a very pretty flower. I received a catalog in the mail last week from Park Seed Co. In the catalog they have the plant listed as an annual but the plant that my friend gave me reseed's it self I think this one is the Blush it comes in 4 colors.

Weekend over

Sunday and a new episode of True Blood on HBO! It was great and I can't wait to see next week's. I did something that I hardly ever do I cooked today. It was very simple just baked chicken, fried okra, and box macaroni and cheese. Tried to knit a dishcloth had to rip it out again and made a trip to Walmart. My black eyed susan's are starting to bloom. Tomorrow's Monday and I am ready for the weekend.
