First Snow

Asheboro had it's first snow. It was very pretty and it did not last for very long. We had just come home from a trip to the Fish Market and Grocery Store. I think it might have lasted 30 minutes. The snow is gone now. I was great to watch. I am enjoying some time alone in the house. My Mother went to her Sister's for the night and I am home alone. I love having the house to myself. I confess that I have not spent to much time knitting dishcloth's today. I did add at least three rows to the Feather and Fan Dishcloth that I started. I plan is to work on it while watching 48 Hours a Mystery tonight. I cast on three different time a scarf out of Patos pooch yarn I have only one ball. I brought it on sale a long time ago and now the yarn has been discontinued. I cast on with large needles thinking this would help and I would get a nice scarf out of the one ball but no such look. I have tried a straight knit stitch casting on twelve and then tried again with six, then tried a cast on of 20 for a Bias Scarf. So far nothing seems to be working. I looked on ebay and Amazon could not find the color I need. I have the Spring Blush. I did see some pooch on ebay but not the Spring Blush! I think I will try the Bias Scarf again maybe it will work with just the one ball. What can you do with one ball on Patons pooch? It's just 36 yds of yarn. I really hate it when a yarn gets discontinued. I am ready to watch a few Christmas themed movies.

The Dishlcoth War Continue's

The battle to get dishcloths knit for my Mother and Sister continues. As of today I have cast off the fourth dishcloth for my Mother. I know that is not a lot. The battle would be won if I did not need to sleep and work. Saturday will be a big day for working on dishcloths. So as a change of pace I plan to cast a Feather and Fan Dishcloth maybe tonight. It is Friday Eve and I am ready for the weekend. Today I took off work after a half a day so that I could take my Mother to apply for another id. It was so nice to get off work and have a few relaxing hours. I spent the time knitting a dishcloth, watching tv and on the Internet. I love my laptop.

Thrity one days left in the year

Another year almost over and what has changed in my life? What have I accomplished for the year? I need to think about this and see if I can come up with anything. I cast off a red Grandmother's Favorite Dishcloth today an cast on another. I called Hobby Lobby, and A C Moore in Greensboro no one has cone's of Mistletoe yarn. It is to late to order the yarn and get it back in time for this year's Christmas Knits. I did not let my 40% off coupon go to waste at Hobby Lobby I picked up Interweave Knits Holiday Gifts Magazine. I Love This Cotton has a holiday yarn I did not buy a skein today maybe I will next pay day. I sent they winner of the next ironchef pool on Ravelry a gift certificate yesterday. I hope she received her email and enjoys shopping for new yarn. I know I did when I won the Poole for the next foodnetwork star. Red Heart has a great pattern book for sock yarn picked that up today it is More than Socks! it has a great pattern for a hat and scarf. After the first of the year I plan to give the scarf a try.

The last few hours of November

I love having my new laptop. I am sitting at the dining room table with a dishcloth on my needles watching tv. I love TLC watching The Little Couple. I am half way through a Grandmother's Favorite Dishcloth, I am ready to start my decreasing for the second half of the cloth. Wow can't get over the fact that November is over and the last month in the year is about to begin. So far I have been able to use scrap yarn for the dishcloth's. My local Hobby Lobby does not carry the big cones of Mistletoe I called to ask. If they had the cone's my plan was to use the 40% off coupon from Sunday's paper to buy a cone. I think I will call A C Moore tomorrow to see if they carry the cone's they have a 40% coupon too! So just maybe they have the cone's.

The dishcloth war is on! Finally got started with the dishcloths my Mother and Sister want for their friends. Because my Sister said she did not care what color the dishcloths are for her friend's I have 4 dishcloth's already knit just need the end's weaved. I cast on and knit one dishcloth in Mistletoe yesterday and cast on another today. I have knit both from scrap yarn so I hope I have enough scrap to finish the second dishcloth. Tomorrow is pay day and I plan to get a balls of Mistletoe to finish the dishcloth's for my Mother. My Mother wants several cloth's per friend and in certain colors. Mother's never make thing's easy even when you are old and grown. I have a new book to read it is the first in a series by Linda Byler Running Around (and Such) Lizzie Searches for Love Book 1. So I am off to bed to read for a little while and then get ready for Tuesday. My daughter has my camera so no picture's for my blog.

As Time Goes By

How did this happen again another long weekend is almost over. The weekend was not that bad no money to do anything but it's all good. I feel a little lost without a book to read. I finished You Better Knot Die, by Betty Hechtman. I will not give away the end in case someone might want to read the book. I have to say I was very surprised with the killer and the author of the crocheting vampire series. It was a great book and the end leaves me wondering what will happen next. Wishing my life away but I am hoping the next book in the series will be out soon. I love the whole bookstore, cafe, and yarn shop theme. If I won the lottery I would like to have a store like Shedd & Royal Books and More! I want to try the Vampire Scarf, I will have to visit you tube because I have very continued my yarn up my work when I am changing colors. I did bind off two scarves and how all I need to do is weave the end. I need to start those dishcloth's I keep getting side tracked. I love the new laptop. Still learning how to move around without a mouse.
