Look here everyone! They are finished! Ensnared are finally, finally off the needles! As you know, I've not enjoyed knitting these much, but actually, looking at them here, I really quite like them.
It has an awful lot to do with the yarn, which is as near to perfect as yarn can get. Of course it's Posh, but just look at those colours. Fantastic. Mum saw them yesterday and fell in love with them. So guess what Father Christmas might be bringing her in December! We suffer badly with cold feet, mum and I, but as she pointed out, I have far more hand-knitted socks than she does (my 5 pairs to her 3), so it's only fair to share. Oh, ok mum!
I've been meaning to show you this for ages. It's another offering for the great Bloggy Diet Raffle. Now the generosity of Frances has quite astounded me. Eight (yes count them!) skeins of Fyberspates Blue faced Leicester yarn. Absolutely gorgeous. And just in my colours too. (Frances felt that 'Healthy Greens 'would be very appropriate!) Delicious. So come on everyone, if your diet has gone by the way side, start again now. Wouldn't you just love to have a chance at winning this?
It is Thursday, which means it's weigh day. And for the second miraculous announcement of the day, I am pleased to tell you that I have lost 4.5 pounds this week. I was gob smacked when they told me the news. I have never lost that much in a week before - I knew my clothes felt more comfy, but hey, I was hoping for 3!
If you're at all undecided about 'diets', I can wholeheartedly recommend Slimming World. I'm eating loads, feeling full up, not feeling like I'm on a diet and am even letting myself have a daily kitkat for a chocolate fix! Admittedly, I would like 3 or 4 kitkats, but you can't have everything can you?!
