Great day my Daughter and I took the day off from our jobs and spent the day together. We met each other and then traveled to Charlotte. We made out first trip to Ikea and wow it is huge and has lots of nice stuff. After Ikea we went to 3 yarn shops the first Yarnhouse they had a great sale and I brought 3 balls of Debbie Bliss Rialto Aran, it was on sale for 60% off so 3 balls cost just a little over what one skein normally costs. The second shop was Basket of Yarn and the lady in the shop was so nice and I loved the shop, she had great yarn I really want to buy this great yarn, I don't remember the name because I did not write it down, I can't remember a thing if I don't. The yarn because of the texture made just a simple knit stitch scarf look like a complicated pattern. The third and final shop of day was Charlotte Yarn this was a quick trip it seemed like a nice shop and when we arrived there was a group sitting on the chairs and couches working on projects and talking, it looked like everyone was having a very good time. I did not get to spend much time in the shop because my Daughter does not knit or crochet and she was getting bored looking at yarn. I hope to go back again one day. Then it was off the Cheddar for lunch and a quick look around Concord Mills. I had a great time and enjoyed spending time with my Daughter. One the reading front I am reading The Covenant it is the first in the Abram's Daughters series by Beverly Lewis. I am on a Amish kick at this time. No crochet projects at this time and all knitting seems to be on hold.
