I started a diet and it was going very well. I don’t know if it was just water weight but I plateaued and gave up. Needless to say, I am frustrated with myself. My high school reunion is next year. I really don’t want to be overweight. I was missing Twizzlers something fierce–so I started some candy inspired socks. Yum. Look at that picot edge baby. My first. Not too bad. Wow, that is a really big picture.
But you can see the detail, can’tcha?
I also finished a shawl for Owen’s school dinner dance. I don’t really want to discuss the less than warm reception when I dropped it off. We know it was pretty much dummy knitting–garter stitch on big ‘ole needles. But Fiesta Yarns usually do all the work for you. They decided to beef up the chinese auction basket with the GC Granny donated. I tried to explain an evening shawl and a GC to a yarn shop–even if it is a SHOPPE–don’t go to together but they had their own thoughts. Can you believe I considered offering a hand knit aran? DUH!! What would go with that? A pile of poo?
Here’s Gracie modelling it sans head.
