Pomp -a-Doodle

Well I had a great day today. Got up today and got ready to meet my daughter in Greensboro so that we could go to the movies. We went to the 1:05 showing of Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows part 1. It was great and a lot darker than the rest. I think it followed the book in some places. You get a lot of information. Sometimes not the way you think you should and a few character's have been left out. The movie stopped at a very good spot. So sometime next summer part 2 and the end of Harry Potter will come. Paid a visit to Costco to pay the membership and could not leave without buying something. So I brought the Kirkland brand chicken stock. I wanted to try it since I read about it in the monthly magazine I receive. My daughter brought Frosted Mini Wheat's and bottled water and Honey Nut Cheerios. Only one same to try Lobster Spread we got there after 3:00. Then on to A C Moore I brought a skein of Red Heart Pomp-a-Doodle in Plush Plum. I want to knit the scarf. It is so cute it looks like tiny pom poms, when you knit the scarf. The only problem is I have tried to cast on and just can't get it right. I am not sure what I should do. Maybe go to YouTube and see if anyone has a helpful video. The scarf looks so cute. The on to Apple bees to eat. They have a great 2 for $20.00 deal and you get an appetizer and 2 entrees for $20.00. I really enjoyed the time I spent with my daughter. Even though she is only one hour away we don't get to spend that much time together. We both have full time jobs and she has friend's and a boyfriend. She has a great and busy life. I am so happy for her and very proud she works very hard. I did not cast on a dishcloth tonight but I did cast on a scarf. I will work a dishcloth tomorrow. I found both pattern's I plan to use tonight. The patterns are Grandmother's Favorite Dishcloth and Feather and Fan Dishcloth. Very easy and quick patterns to knit. Happy crafting.

Quick Post from the bad blogger!

Okay this is the first time I have posted a blog this month and it is almost over. I have finished reading both books More Church Folks and needles and pearls great books. I have started reading You Better Knot Die by, Betty Hechtman this is the fifth book in the series and the first in hardback. I love all the books and the titles and covers are always great. The cover for the latest book has a dog on it and it reminds me of ce ce my daughter's chihuahua. This weekend I plan to get started knitting dishcloths for my sister and my mother to give to their friends. Harry Potter Movie weekend. The stress level is up and not much on the crochet or knitting front.
