Opps...I forgot

Now that I've been back online and trying to catch up, I realized that I've forgotten a new 'treasure' that I found while visiting the Syracuse area. I found the Knitting Connection while I was there. What a cozy and lovely store! I sat and visited with the ladies while they were having their Saturday afternoon knit group. They were so friendly as they answered my questions while I was perusing their full shelves. I can't wait to go back and visit some more! Can you see the poster on the door? It's for the new Opal Harry Potter yarns. Wanna see some?

Check out what 'followed' me home from 'school' today mom! Aren't those colors pretty? Can't wait to get my 'list' down so I can figure out how to make socks that will fit my ankles without wearing 'floaties' to keep them up. But for now, I'm knitting away on Mom's sweater.

Remember that I'm knitting this in one piece for the body from the bottom up. I've gotten up as far as the sleeves need to be put in, so I've divided it into three sections, and have added additional skeins of yarn to keep knitting it all at once. However,.....

It appears that a stitch was dropped...from the CAST ON row!!!!! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.....figures. Well, I'm not going to rip it out and start over again, but I will figure a way to get it woven in at some point. My flight brings me home Friday night and I'd rather not have to keep knitting on it in front of Mom, so I've got to get cranking this puppy out.
