How's it going then?

The progress? The diet? Stuff? How is it going? Or isn't it? On the whole subject of losing weight, I'm still going in the right direction - lost 1lb last week, Dotty Cookie is down another 2lbs. (That's nearly half a stone Dotty!!!!)

As to progress, well the colours haven't come out too well on this photo. I think this is my favourite square so far (yeah, yeah, yeah, I say that every time!) - loving the colours on this and really like the sequins. Shame they're such a palaver to put on, otherwise I'd be knitting sequins into everything!

I've got another square done for the GW blanket too, and of course I just had to lay them all out again! I like the way this is coming together, just awaiting new supplies of Posh Yarn now so I can add in some different colours - still yellows and golds, just different shades.

There are a few bloggers out there who need our thoughts this week. WMK's mum is very poorly. Mrs Locket's mother-in-law is also similarly ill. And Mrs Posh Yarn herself has got a nasty virus. Hope everyone gets much better very soon.

All things considered it is all going very well thanks.

Oh, sad news about people not being well. Must go and say hello.

Oh, and as for the weight thing, it's a sad fact that the more you need to lose to start with, the faster the weight comes off at the beginning (and goes back on again, as I know to my cost).

But I'm starving now.

Well, according to my Wii Fit I've lost 2lbs this week (and that's about 2lbs more than I thought it would be!) so it's working, hooray! I have a little bundle of fabric ready to send off to you as soon as I can get to the post office.

I'm afraid I don't get any points this week. My knitting-related treat is in an envelope on the kitchen table -- let's just see how long it takes me to get a stamp and put it in the mail. Anyways, next week, for sure!

Half a pound again this week, ho hum. Hopefully we're off to Cambridge this weekend and I'll get something yummy for the stash diet prize.

Hey? Is the prize at the end that you get your own loveliness back or do you get the whole kit and caboodle?

Another pound gone! Went off the deep end a bit today,though...sandwich from a shop and a cream puff for dessert. And neither was very good :(

Diet going really badly - I'm just too greedy for my own good!

Thanks for the kind thoughts to Michaela - things are looking a lot better with my mil - had an angiogram and angioplasty yesterday and hopefully coming home today! Hooray!!!!

Congratulations to you super slimmers. Another miracle happened this week and I've lost another 1lb...and still have to send you my raffle goodies!

I have a feeling the goal of winning something lovely may have caused my metabolism to speed up ;)

So sorry to hear about WMK's mum, and Locket has been keeping me informed about her m-i-l. It's so hard when your loved ones are ill.

congrats on the diet - and the blanket is looking beautiful - i'm sure your parents will love it.
