Knitting Night

I actually did a lot of knitting last night but nothing worth taking any photos of. I made progress on the sock and nearly finished the front of the sweater. I knit while watching a Pittsburgh Pirates pre-season game on TV. No, I'm not a big baseball fan...but, you know....when in Rome.... In our house you don't have much choice if you want to sit in the living room and knit using the best light. We have other televisions, but that's my knitting spot and if I want to use it, I have to deal with the majority when it comes to the TV.

Today I will stop at the LYS to check out some more Cascade 220 for a few more Sophie Bags and I also want to find some good, soft worsted for another Irish Hiking Scarf for my son in law for Christmas. I'd love to find a "tweed" look for that. Any suggestions? My LYS proprietor is searching for a good yarn for me for the Clapotis I want to do for my sister. She got some great Wool In The Woods cotton/rayon spring yarns in but the colors are not right. I'm picturing Fall colors for that project.

Wow.. so many projects, so little time. I want to win the lottery so I can knit all day long. I've heard that you actually have to buy the little tickets in order for that to happen. My chances are slim... very slim.
