OH MY GOSH! What is that?


Can you hear it? Is that a marching band? Wait, maybe a parade. And where are the lights coming from? Is it a flashing neon sign? Fireworks? Oh my gosh! It must be a HUGE celebration. What could it be? Can't be Elvis, he is no longer with us. The Beatles, no. Million dollar lottery winners are a common thing nowdays. What is attracting all this whooplah? Now I see what is causing all the excitement. Project #3 ~ The Baby's Texture Blanket IS FINALLY COMPLETE! It is a MIRACLE! I think I can hear the angel's singing in heaven. I know I am.

This has been a sometimes challenging, sometimes frustrating, sometimes relaxing, often a learning experience, often a topic of conversation, and always a fun project. As much as I complained about my lack of knitting experience, I would make this blanket again. Just not in the near future.

Check back at the end of the week for Project #6. I am still trying to figure out what to knit next.

One more thing, Thursday night is weigh in at Weight Watchers. You know what that means? CHEAT NIGHT!!!! After I weigh in, I have a fun meal. I decided tomorrow will be a twice baked potato and my vegan "spare ribs". The potato was the on the show, "Cook's Country", a PBS cooking show. It looks sinful. THEN, a piece of chocolate cake with mousse filling. All this with a large DIET COKE. Can't wait for weigh in.

Congratulations! Great job on the blanket! It's beautiful. You are a brave woman to give it a go, and a real inspiration to us beginner/intermediate knitters! You deserve a cheat night for all your hard work - weight loss, AND knitting!

It looks great, Barb!

It's been a very rough week around here and my careful eating and exercise have gone to the wayside. I feel like a fat cow again. *sigh*
