Quick Post

This is the newest member of my sheep collection! The Baby Girl gave me the YARN and the pattern for Christmas and I wanted to knit her right up, so, here she is. She looks bug eyed but if I put black buttons on her she'd have looked eyeless. I love it. Real wool yarn too! There is no name or anything on the pattern so I can't share all that but I love it. The Baby Girl gets an A+ for Christmas gift giving to her Mom this year!

Those are the socks that I started when we went to the Pugfest. I bought the yarn at one of my favorite yarn shops in Lawrencville. It's Regia Silk, color #0189 and so nice on the feet! The pattern is just simple knitting - st st - from Kate Gilbert's site. I have them on as I type and my feet are warm and very happy!

The Baby Girl only has 2 more days to spend with us before she heads back to college (2nd semester already!) so she and I are going to spend the day together shopping (back to school stuff AGAIN!), my latte at Starbucks and whatever else we can come up with.

For my own info a year from now when I look back at my blog, I've lost another 3 pounds so I'm now down 13 pounds. YAHOO! It'll be confirmed (I hope) on Tuesday when I go back to my Cardiologist. With less than 3 weeks to go till my big vacation with my Sweetie, another 6 pounds could be possible.

Happy Knitting! More pictures tomorrow of Christmas gifts to myself!

Cute sheep! And your socks look great. I have a couple things to finish then I'll be trying a pair.

Congratulations on losing weight! I think I found some of it, though. :(

Great job on the 13 pounds! Your doing wonderful.

Have a great day with your daughter.

Beth, Rebekah and Shelley,
Thanks for the compliments on my sheep and socks. That's my 4th pair so now I'm looking for a pattern for the 5th. Like I've said, I hate knitting socks but I really love how they feel on my feet so have to knit more.
Thanks for the congrats on the 13 pounds, too. It's been an experience, that's for sure. That heart attack was a wake up call for the cook in the family. (that's me)
Happy Knitting!

The sheep is wonderful. I really love it. As someone who has struggled to get the pounds off I am so proud of your 13 pound loss.

Hey, you may want to join this too...

Me, run? Nope, but walking on the treadmill.

Hugs to you!

It looks like you're working on the weight thing too. We can all support each other. I wish you all the best in 2007. Thanks for reading my blog and for the comment.

Just getting caught up on your blog. What great presents...the kids know their Mom. Congrats on your weight loss. That is one of my goals for 2007 too. The sheep is just adorable.
