Wonderful Spring Day!

Cross the County line today and went to Greensboro to meet my Daughter. I wanted to check out the new Whole Foods at Friendly Shopping Center. I love it. My plan is to spend a lot of time shopping at Whole Foods. It was very crowded today. The store was great. They had local products and that is great. Fresh Duck legs and Duck breast. The dry beans and pasta, fresh fish. Then off to Savory Spice Shop also a shop that sales olive oil and other oils. I can't remember the name of the shop. Then we went to lunch. So all around great Saturday. The only thing about visiting stores outside of Asheboro and Randolph County is the fact that you realize how bad the stores are in Asheboro. The variety is very low in Asheboro. Well what can you do. I finished reading Till Death Do Us Purl, by Anne Canadeo great read and I had a feeling about Jeremy's Scarf and I was right! . You need to read the book to find out what I am talking about.  I have several rows of a baby blanket started but I know that I need to rip it out  again and start over. It is off track it is to bad to keep going. I just can't bring myself to do it yet. Happy crafting.

Another Middle Of The Week Post

It's Wednesday night and I am watching America Idol. Still reading Till Death Do Us Purl, Anne Canadeo. Great read and I can't make up my mind about the murderer.  This week so far I have weaved the ends on my first knit afghan. I found a free pattern from Plymouth Yarn Company it is Heaven - F138 it is a Mini Baby Blanket, I did not use  Heaven yarn. I used Bernat Baby Blanket Yarn, the color Pitter Patter. It is a very pretty yarn, and nice color, very soft. I used almost 3 balls. Cast on a new baby afghan on Sunday but it took three cast on's to get it right. On Sunday I was to busy watching A Game of Thrones on HBO. Great Series if you want to give it a try. Well back to the Afghan. You can find the pattern in Leisure Arts Quick # 2894 Knit Baby Afghans by Evelyn A. Clark. I am knitting #5 Whisper Soft. It is an easy quick knit, you use 2 strands of yarn held together. I am using Lion Brand Pound of Love in 101 Pastel Pink and 100 White. I had to buy the White but had the Pastel Pink in my stash. I am trying to take it slow so and avoid ripping the afghan out again. I am on row 7.  Tonight's picture is  the Mini Baby Blanket.
