Pretty good day

Well this has been a pretty good day. This means not half bad. I got up this morning got dressed and went to Greensboro. I love getting out of Asheboro and Randolph, it is like some big black cloud that hangs over my head goes away. Well the cloud lifted today and I made my first stop at the library to pick up to books I requested. Laced with Magic, by Barbara Bretton and Spinning Forward, by Terri Dulong. I plan to start with Laced with Magic right after this post. Then I went to stitch Point a yarn shop in Greensboro. I brought a skein of yarn Cotton Kisses from Plymouth Yarn Co. the skein of yarn comes with 2 patterns and 3 buttons. The pattern is for a very pretty little baby sweater. I have never knit a sweater. I really want to try and knit this sweater. I read the pattern and I don't understand it at all. The ladies at the shop told me to come by if I need help both of them have knit the sweater. I wonder if they mean come by just to get started! My next stop was AC Moore I was looking for size 15 31"circular needles. I did not find any of course. I found 29" , and 24". So I know I have seen 36" circulars at Benjamin Franklin's. I might have to go up to the 36" for the pattern I want to do. I avoided most of Greensboro today due to the ACC tournament. I got home read the pattern for the sweater watched Forever Knight on the Chiller channel. I have the house to myself this weekend. My mother is not here and my daughter's friend is not here. It was nice to come home to an empty house yesterday after work, and to go to Greensboro alone today. I really enjoy time to my self. It has been just me and the cats and I know this makes me seem like the crazy,divorced cat lady but what the hell.

Baby Washcloths

The Baby Washcloths for my coworker are finally finished. I knit the stork, baby bottle, lamb, butterfly, and rubber ducky. I weaved the ends today and they are ready for the baby. I have moved on and knit the baby bottle and stork for my daughter's best friend, cast on the baby buggy and I plan to try and get this cloth and rubber ducky done by Wednesday night. My daughter and one of her friends leave for New Jersey early Friday morning. So her friend plans to meet my daughter in Raleigh on Thursday night. This weekend my daughter and I went to a great restaurant on Saturday Razzoo's Cajun Cafe. My daughter had a drink called the lost hand, I had a margarita. I order the Jambalaya pasta it was very good, my daughter had a spicy shrimp pasta. I know I posted yesterday about my day with my daughter. I had to do so again today because I enjoyed it so much. How that she is working and I work and she is so busy with her friend's and boyfriend we don't get to spend as much time together. That's the way is should be when your child is an adult. Your relationship always changes and moves to different levels. This adult level great. I am posting picture's of the washcloths for my co worker.
