Since I am a beginner knitter I decided I should get something back on the needles so I improve and do not feel like I am learning all over months from now. I had to take the yarn and needles to my daughters home yesterday and get casting on lessons again. This is the same shawl pattern I used to make for my best friends birthday present. This one will either be a birthday or Mothers day gift if I do not get it done on time for the birthday. I was able to get the border done this evening but it is really something I want to be able to pick up and work on in the mornings while I am having my coffee and watching the news before going to work. I have found that I can use the long needles easier than the circular ones and I can actually knit quicker.
Last week was my first week of the diet and I started out at 154.4 and weighed in at 152.4 on Friday. Today I got back on the scale and my weight was 150 pounds even. I lost a little over 2 more pounds this week and that gives me the encouragement I need to continue. If I loose 2 pounds a week I certainly can meet my weight goal by April 1st. I hope you will not get tired of hearing about the weight loss but it helps if I am telling someone besides hubs how it is going and hopefully you all will help me stay accountable.
I have a list a mile long of things I need to work on this weekend. I hope to get some fabric cut for the next border on the quilt, some crocheting done and maybe tackle cleaning out another closet or cupboard. I know the weekend will not be long enough. I wish you all a great weekend! Blessings!
