My Journey

here we are the middle of the week and I am starting to feel normal after being sick for almost a week with a sinus infection, no fun at all.
No knitting going on at the moment but I will be going to buy some wool to make the Bella gloves and the hat for the little one and a pair for my self of coarse :) she has read all the Twilight books so I thought it would be great to make the set for her for the new movie.
As I post last week I have started on a weight loss journey and it is going really well and I have to say its a lot easier than I thought. The good thing about WW is that its not a diet, its about really being aware of what you are putting in your body and how much you are eating. I have found a couple weight loss buddies via the wonderful world of the internet that are doing WW too and we are going to fight the fat together. I could not be more excited than to share this journey with all my friends.
The only thing that I am wondering is if I should start a new blog for the weight loss. I know alot of people come here to see knitting or hello kitty stuff or my blackberry themes,so I don't want to take away from that. Let me know what you think about it..
Off I go to get outside and meet the world since I feel much better. Have a great day all..

All Kinds Of New and Exciting Stuff

We found this bug outside out front door and thought it was very strange with its 2 eyes and it had some kind of snout.. its a cross between a caterpillar and a slug.. And that is not my hand holding that thing that would be Don.
Here is picture of my first complete Toe Up Sock Magic Loop Method! I was so excited to learn how to do toe up and it seemed to go really fast. I did have to rip back 2 times because I made the toe way to long but I finally got it right. They only problem was that little hole. Do you see it? I didn't know it was there till I took this pic and I have no clue how that happened.
I am starting on the second sock now and can't wait to complete it so I have a new pair of socks to were.
We are going to change subjects here from knitting,bugs to me:) I don't know how many people read this blog or if any of my friends do but this blog has been a lot of fun for me and has served as a outlet for me to put subjects that are important to me on the web. So I guess it always can't be great ,exciting news that you read about right?

I have recommitted myself as of TODAY to get on the band wagon and do Weight Watchers.. Being over weight now for more than a couple of years I have decided that's it for the fat being attached to me. I am tired all the time, have no get up and go and just really tired of looking at the stuff hanging around all the time. makes me feel older than 40 and Im not having it any longer. What I have done is re-joined the or the long link is troops to fight the bulg. When I first found this website about 8 or 9 years ago I had no clue that it would be something i would come back to time and time again over the years. Anything and everything you need to do the Weight Watchers plan is there. It has loads of information on all kinds of food, restaurants,resources ,spread sheets,forums,weight buddies . I have all the information in one spot, its fantastic and can't sing the praises enough. There a couple of friends that are going to join me on this journey so I am really excited to get the party started and get us all healthy and slim.
There will be alot of post about my weight loss so be warned now. Being true to my self means blogging about the work outs,eating habits,food and all that other stuff that will keep me going on this journey. I know I can do it do I am here to prove it.I might even post of pic of myself now so we will have a something to look at while I go threw this. Its going to be a lot of work and focus but I know with all my great support systems out there I can do this. Wise me luck all.

Look at what I made

Hello world : ) it seems that I really have been trying to knit things that I have never done before these last couple of weeks. Yesterday I was browsing the Raverly patterns page and pulled up some wrist warmer. Now for the last 2 winters I kept saying I was going to make a pair of these and it has never happened. Well after yesterday I decided to stop the madness and make a damn pair already. So I started with the Toasty Pattern

I just could not believe how fast and simple this basic pattern was. I did add a 2x2 ribbing on the start and finish just to break up the stockinette. The yarn I used was lion brand wool-ease in worsted weight. The color was Wood 232. This one glove only took me one day and I will finish the second one today :) way excited can't wait to wear them.
