So this past summer around June, I decided I was going to get a head start on Christmas knitting. I went out and bought yarn, picked out patterns, all that jazz. And then I went about my 50 hour work week life, and had no time (energy, really) to be knitting. So I didn’t. Now, I am at school, and have LOADS (a disgusting amount, really) of time on my hands..So I started the christmas knitting for real this time! 🙂
This weekend I made one slipper from the Malabrgio Loafers pattern, and I cast on the second. With these I really feel like I should knit the body of the slipper in one go, so I will probably do the second one later on this week, possibly weekend.
I also started and finished a pair of Evangeline Mitts. Super easy, quick knit. I love how they turned out! I started the first one on Friday night, finished the ribbing Saturday afternoon and shortly thereafter cast on the second. Finished it just as SNL ended.
I have a bunch of other stuff on my horizon. I’m thinking about starting a Swell Hat soon, for my little brother. I also have the second malabrigo loafer to work on, a pair of felted slippers for my mom, and I am going to make a Calorimetry and some mittens for my sister! I’ve got at least three pairs of socks (One of which is halfway finished) going for Christmas as well…hmm..Maybe I’m being too adventerous. We’ll see how it works out.
In non-knitting news…I have been craving protein hardcore lately. And eggs.
Here’s what I’ve eaten so far today..
Instant Oatmeal: High Fiber Cinnamon Swirl. So, so yummy.
Dannon Light and Fit Plus
Thomas’ Light English muffin with turkey, a little cheddar cheese, lettuce and honey mustard. Toasted the muffin, of course. This is quickly becoming a lunch favorite of mine.
Sugar Free Caramel Pudding with a Graham Cracker.
For dinner I am contemplating pasta and a salad, or a bean and cheese burrito. Haven’t quite made up my mind yet..And I will probably eat a string cheese before I head off to Aerobics this evening.
I’ve been doing Weight Watchers since May 28th and have lost 26.6 lbs. My goal weight is 145, I am currently around 158. I would really like to get there before the end of this year, but I’m not 100% sure if I’ll make it. Next weekend I am traveling to Michigan to visit my best friend for a week, where I will probably revert back to a lot of bad habits from last year, and then I have my dad visiting shortly thereafter..And then like two weeks after that I am going to Alaska for Thanksgiving..And then three weeks later I am home for Christmas and it is almost the new year! Wow, time is going to FLY.
We’ll see how it goes. I am really proud of how successful I’ve been so far and I want to keep it that way. I have learned a lot of wonderful habits and I just really eat differently now..So we’ll see how it goes.
I should probably end this entry and go do some math homework or reading before aerobics..I need to pull my grades up, hardcore
