What a week this has been. The post that follows is a mish-mash of things – a bit of an indicator of my headspace today.
Despite the pattern, I am making headway on my Stacy Pullover. You know, I really love the items in this book – but this is the 5th time I have encountered a pretty big pattern issue that is not listed among the Errata on the website….and this book has been out for over a year now. Anyways. I muddled through it and it seems to be working so…I hope I don’t encounter any other complications further on, since I am not too secure with my ability to ‘figure’ out anything to do with sleeves or necklines!
I am making a summmer friendly version as the yarn I am using is thinner than called for. The stitch pattern is still showing – this was the only thing I was really worried about with the gauge change.
In other news – Laura from Sugar Bunny Boulevard has started a Weight Loss Challenge group. Too fabulous! And judging from how badly I ate yesterday…much needed extra support.
My weigh in went well on Weds. night. I lost 3.8 lbs. Now why can’t I be happy with that? Why was I disappointed and down on myself? My friend thinks it could be from watching the Biggest Loser – that I am anticipating 5-8 lb losses at each weigh in. She could be right about that. In the meantime, I am struggling to regain my equilibrium and not eat like a fool because I am disappointed. And really – as if there aren’t going to be weigh ins of lesser signifigance in the weeks/months to come as I have a large amount of weight to lose. Perspective people. I lack perspective.
I was hoping to bring you some Yarn Pron but…the mails have failed me and I have nothing to show you today. 😦
10 PM –ETA: I was planning on adding a photo of my progress on the Stacy Pullover but…having frogged not once, not twice, but 5 stinking times – I decided to rip back to the beginning of the Honeycomb Pattern. I am going to try again. Really try. I’ll fill you in tomorrow.
And just cause how boring is this without any pics…
