Day 2

Today is Day 2 of Weight Watchers for me...only 17 pounds to go! While I have been cranky all day and my DH now hates me, there is no room for quitting around here! I've got a college homecoming AND a highschool reunion this year. How's that for motivation? So...be looking for my skinny knitter self come May at MSW.

Speaking of MSW, I've got a room and a plan: Check in Friday night...wake up...haul a$$ to the Cherry Tree Hill booth...dash to Spirit Trail. That leaves me in my pajamas at MSW with bad breath. Hmmm...I suppose that some personal hygiene might be in order to avoid offending the "sheep and wool." Although, the DH is going to be doing enough of that for the both of us eating lamb kabobs and lamb burgers right in front of the little guys. Can someone get this man some help? Sick....just sick.

I took a sock class back in March at The Yarn Lounge and made the Whitby socks from Knitting on the Road. One down, one to go. I hope that I don't get SSS (Second Sock Syndrome). Things are looking good so far...I've cast on and been through one pattern repeat. I think that I might be in the clear.
Now that I have over come my distaste for DPNs...I forsee more sock knitting. In fact, I bought some Socks that Rock (color: Blarney Stone) and Denali from Pagewood Farm (color: Ireland). Patterns for these TBD.
In the meantime, I am going to knit a pink ribbon sock with my Shelbridge Farm Soft Touch Ultra (color: Thistleflower). I have finally finished the Lace Baby Cardi (minus the lace). As soon as I have sewn on the buttons (probably after M.M. has outgrown the sweater), I will post some pics.

The baby blanket continues. The good news is that I'm liking the yarn much better now (although 100% cotton is still not in my top 10).

Until next time...GIT 'ER DONE!!

Good luck with the WW. It's a good plan, I wish I could get myself back on track. As for MSW, lamb is 4 pts for 2 oz.....

Good for you doing WW! It'll be easier than you think ... if I can lose 20 pounds on it, anyone can!

I've been trying this week to get back on the weight watchers wagon myself. Good luck! I am planning to go to MDS&W on the 3rd, assuming the weather is good for it. Maybe I'll see you there!
