Started a new ball on the somewhat cowl finally. I'm still only about 9 inches into the raglan increases... Someday it will be done. Patience is a virtue. No pics to display today.

One good thing: I found the pattern I got for the Mary Jane Cardigan... It was lost for about, ooohhh, six weeks? YES! I might start that one pretty soon.

Hold the Carbs...

So I conquered two things yesterday:
1. Did some spring cleaning before the Mister comes home for the summer.
2. Got back into the kitchen (Oh god....) and managed to cook a wholesome, yet tasty, low-carb dinner!

One week into phase 1 and I'm down six lbs. :) Yesss!

Also knitted four more rows on the SC, but not much difference. Feels like forEVER to get to the joining in the round part. Oh well... One day.

Here's the colorful menu from yesterday:
Grilled chicken burger with garlic and feta; side of roasted veggies and a salad wedge.
I even splurged on a Michelob Ultra at only 2.5 carbs each!

Where does the time go??

Where have I been? Has it really been nine days? ...NINE?... Well, just in case anyone was wondering, I have been back to working and sleeping and working and sleeping and working again... No time to do ANYTHING. I did, however, find a way around the "no knitting due to new job" scenario, though... Sad but true, I have been knitting in my car on my lunch break. I'm such a dork. It has afforded me a little bit of progress on my SC, though, so stop laughing (or crying). I can't wait until it's long enough to join in the round. At least then I'll really feel like I've gotten somewhere.

This dark yarn doesn't really photograph very well, but it's there in all its glory. Ah, yes. I made that with my own little hands. Don't you just love the laundry room shot?

In other news, I have started the South Beach Diet. I would like to drop about 15 lbs. On day FIVE, I have lost 6 lbs. (How the hell? I dunno.) I did cheat just a bit today, though. I was .S.T.A.R.V.I.N.G. and I downed a protein bar that had 22 carbs. That's the most I've had in five days. I feel pretty good except for the utter emptiness of not eating good food, but hey, at least I'll look better when the weight's gone. Hah! No more chips and salsa for a while, I'm afraid. Boo. I loves me some chips and salsa! Self portrait Sunday will resume when the weight is gone. Lovely. TTFN.

Work gets in the way of knitting.

Somewhat Progress

Gosh the Somewhat Cowl is going slowly! I do have excuses, ahem, reasons, though... Work, work, more work, no time to knit, and when I do knit, I get two LONG rows done, then fall asleep. I'm going to make the conscious effort to get more done and FAST. Okay, so here it is:

And since it's Sunday, here's a beauti-fly self-portrait! :)
