Sorry about being away so long. I stayed away from blogs, forums, etc until I finished reading Harry Potter.

Comments have been posted. Thank you ladies.

Also the Highland Triangle Shawl is complete, just needs a little blocking and I'll post a picture.

A few numbers

Went to the 10:30 am showing of the 5th Harry Potter this morning. My favorite! But I say that about each one. I was so "into" the movie that at one point I realized I had stopped knitting.

Highland Triangle Shawl has 2 of the 3 borders completed.

I have 2 new tires on my car. The front tires to be exact.

Bailey had a 4 paw manicure.

There were 2 big storm clouds this afternoon and neither one released it's rain.

I watch 467439 reality tv shows!

7-11 Stores gave away Slurpees today to celebrate my birthday! and their anniversary.

Edie Eckman is teaching 4 classes for the Tidewater Knitting Guild of Va. Check out the site for information.

So last night I put away the Highland Shawl, pulled out a mohair/silk scarf and put in "Capote". I just couldn't get into the movie. One, because he won the Oscar and I really believe Heath should have and Two, I kept trying to figure out how they were making him look short. The movie also brought back a high school memory of a girl that had a major crush on Perry, the killer. She gave me the book and told me I too would fall in love with him. I don't remember finishing it. And no, Perry did nothing for me.

This morning I pulled out all of the skeins and the labels used. And I put on my glasses. All but 1 of the skeins have the same dye lot! So last night I was wrong. Note to self: reading glasses do have a purpose.

And the one with the wrong dye lot has not been used.

Sooooo, I have a feeling, since I pulled skeins off the shelf that were disheveled, ball bands were not returned to the correct skein.

I could go into a rant about customers sampling yarn but I won't.

And no, kemtee, I'm not tinking. Besides, sometimes I can't see the difference.
