Girl! You must not check your PMs in here, because I just included you on a message, asking for your yarn preferences.

I was thinking that you and I could get together on Tuesday if you want. Barnes & Noble or Starbucks...you say the word.

Thanks for the Welcome
Thanks for the Welcome,
I am new to this forum so I am not sure how to do the posting and such. Where was everyone going to the knit out?
It sounds like most everyone is on the other side of the state from me.
I only have one fairly local yarn store in Stedman, NC. I mostly go into Cary, NC to get my yarn or order on line.
I am currently working on several projects, one is a sweater using Lang Zoom yarn! I was using one of Lang's sweater patterns, but I am adding my views to it, changing it here and there!
I also have a pair of sock going and I am getting reading to start a shaw using Kid mohair yarn that I got from Posh yarn from England. Love their yarn but it $$.
Again thanks for the Welcome
Sheila

Laura, I'm so excited about your shop!
I wish I could be there to roll around in the yarn when it's delivered to you! (I think you should hand out inexpensive strands of pearls to your first 50 shoppers.)

Michelle, my knee is KILLING ME! It's this stupid weather. We're having a major thunderstorm right now. My "barometer" knee always lets me know about storms ahead of time.
I'm REALLY looking forward to meeting you tomorrow!!
And I'm SO glad your baby is head down now.

I got to meet Doodknitwit yesterday, and she is a smart lady! She is also very nice.

Sheila, we had to cancel our last get-together, which was planned to take place in Salisbury. Up til now, all our get-togethers have been in Charlotte. I'm thinking we should plan an indoor event for July or August, because MAN, is it HOT outside!!!
By the way, I just started knitting a lace scarf last night with some kid mohair by Plassard, called "Pichenette". Feels like I'm knitting with thread!

Sandy,
I've been trying to do a lacy project for the last week. I got frustrated and foundout that I combination knit. I've spent the week online discovering what that means. Combination knitting is easy but now I need to compensate for patterns or "re-learn" how to knit. I have some books Amazoning in soon to help. How have you learned how to knit and what have you ran into?

I started a scarf yesterday too. But its an easy Fun Fur one for my MIL. She's been bugging me since I made one for all the cousin girls for Christmas. I was getting pissy at my hat so I figured something no nonsense would be nice. Now I'm bored just knitting.

Sandy I'm looking forward to tomorrow too. I "need" to get out by myself. I'm a little t'd off at Steven at the moment.

Yesterday was our 8th wedding anniversary. All was great. Til he made plans for Saturday to play poker with the guys. "Um honey, you have tickets for Go Diego Go on Sat." him "oh can't you take them?" me "I was hoping you'd take them so I could have some 'ME' time. Plus this was to be your last little hurrah with them before the baby comes". him, "well I did take the kids to the waterpark while you finished working 2 weeks ago". After he said that and my jaw dropped, he realized that I was still WORKING and it wasn't "ME" time. He is still playing poker and I have begged MIL to take the kids to see the show.

Anyway that was long winded. I rarely get "Me" time, b/c I don't make it for myself. But I was sooooo looking forward to this and the kids were looking forward to getting dressed up to go out with Dad.
