My Ravelympics projects:

For Team Fast Girls Knit Left, entered in WIP Dancing: This is a cardigan in Noro Silk Garden. I started it last summer, kinda flamed out sometime in November. The fronts are done except for the button bands, the back is about 3/4 done. Have not gotten to sleeves yet.

For Team Wyoming, entered in WIP Dancing: This is a throw made in Mountain Colors, Moguls and Mohair. I started it in fall 2007?? Dang, it was shortly after I had the tonsilyanktomy in Oct 2007... I forget when I flamed out on it. It's been quite awhile however.

For Team Daughters of the Whore of Babylon, entered in the Flying Camel Spin event: These fibers are from a Spinning Loft sampler.

Check back for updates...

What a difference 8 pounds makes

That's what I've lost in the past month. I already look thinner, I don't have to fight my jeans to get them on...

I still have a ways to go, but am making good progress.

I need to get going on my knitting. I haven't been doing much lately. Been busy with work, and ultra tired when I get home. I've had way too many trials in the past few weeks. Next week looks pretty peaceful though... (and being busy is good for the bank balance... especially now that I'm being more of a hardass on getting paid...)

I have one afghan square going for the Rav go fast. knit left. Speedweeks Victory Junction project. Started it last night. That's about the only knitting I've done in the past few weeks. I'll go work on it in a little while, after dinner. I want to get another square or two done in addition to the one I cast on last night. Then the Ravelympics start in a week... WIP Dancing and Flying Camel Spin are on tap...

And NASCAR is back in action! w00t!!!

Rascal is cuddled up next to the computer. Prolly 'cuz it's warm.
