Wishing Upon a Star

Heather's Wish List
1. Ohh, I wish I would finish Audrey's shrug! I'm finally working on the second sleeve, but it is taking forever. My DH is going to be gone for the next 3 weeks for work training and I think that I should have it done by then. No, I will have it done!
2. I've all ready bought yarn for my next project, Monkey from It's a beautiful sock pattern and the yarn I purchased will look great with it. Now I'll just have to learn how to master 4 needles at one time. I just really want to get started on them.
3. I need to keep up my blog a little better. I hope I can do that with summer coming on the and the kids being home all day long. Maybe I could get one of my daughters to type my thoughts while I knit. ( I maybe onto something there. The spelling wouldn't be the greatest though.)
4. That I knitted faster so I could do all the projects that I want to do. My list of items keeps getting longer and longer. So much to knit and so little time!

All I need is just one skein

I've got most of Audrey's shrug done. But I just need one more skein of Moda Dea Dream to finish it up. I got it on sale in Manhattan at Hobby Lobby, but since that is a 45 minute trip and gas is up to $3.09 a gallon I think I can wait. I asked my sister to check out the Hobby Lobby store in Salina, which is 20 minutes away. Hopefully she can find it and bring it to me tonight. I really want to get this shrug done. I've been itching to do another project. The funny thing about this shrug was I should have been able to do it with 4 skeins, which I have. I guess I knit a little to loose. UGH, gauge is such a cruel mistress!

High ho, high ho, it's off to the yarn store I plan to go ...

I think it's time to go the yarn store here. I've been thinking about knitting a pair of socks and I would like to check out what yarn is available. The yarn store here, is great and such a wonderful place even if it is only open 3 days a week. I can get my fix filled in at least one of those days. Slowly but surely Audrey's shrug is coming together. I have about 7 more inches to go before I can start the second sleeve. I plan on having this bit of knitting done by the end of next week. I guess I'd better get going on it.
