Knitting and knitting

I am up to 26 rows of 30 before starting my first heel, I am getting anxious, LOL. Will be going to SA this weekend to walk in the Race For A Cure. So don't know if I'll get to it till next week. Depends on how much I have to drive, LOL. Will take it along just in case, also my prayer shawl, easy take along to work on.

Weight Watcher Progress

I re-joined January 02, 2006. I have been a life time member since 1985, but have slid off the wagon, LOL. Lost 3.8 pounds since getting back from the cruise. So officially I am back to pre-cruise weight minus a few pounds. LOL. I organized an at work program here and the group is doing great. A total of over 135.2 pounds lost in 6 weeks!

Busy weekend

What a weekend. Amid all the rain that we had, I managed to get several projects done, and some knitting on my first sweater. I hung more peg board in my sewing/craft room, and got up the shelving around the perimeter of the room 12 in. down from the ceiling. The wicker baskets I bought fit perfectly, got my yarn stash out of the storage area under the stairs and put in the baskets. DH was staining the selves for the peg boards and wasn't happy with the coloring so was sanding them down again. And he says I'm the perfectionist, LOL. He also changed out the light fixture above the stairs (with the $200.00 "stair ladder" later, LMBO, but says "it's the last ladder we'll ever have to buy). I should hope so. The thing will extend to 18 feet.

The stairs are finished, or so I thought, LOL. DH has ordered some filigree sort of wooden deco things to put on the risers. They will look nice. Well off to get my massage, and then knitting class. This little baby sweater is sure costing a lot to make, LOL.
