On the Weight Loss/Getting Healthy Front Monday I visited a nutritionist and I really like her. The main thing I am working on this week is portions and slowing down when I eat. Both are hard, but slowing down for me is the hardest. Everyone in my family eats fast and I have to really concentrate to slow down. I am still considering having the lap band, but I am not there yet.
Go do something just for the heck of it.

You know how I like anything hippie. I am knitting this in Cascade Cotton Rich DK in a very light green colorway. I ordered my yarn from WEBS at www.yarn.com . They are currently having a great 35th anniversary sale, so you ought to go and check it out. This should be an easy knit as it is all in stockinette. I am knitting it in the round until the underarms and then I am going to finish up the front and back, seam at the shoulders and the pick up the stitches for the sleeves and knit them down. This is not the instructions that are written for the pattern, it is written in pieces, but I wanted to eliminate some of the seaming. I will let you know how it goes.

Swish is a superwash merino and can be found at http://www.knitpicks.com/. If you have never ordered from Knit Picks you don't know what you are missing. They make the best knitting needles ever. They are wood and called Harmony and are both beautiful and very, very nice to knit with. I am making the Shawl out of Aracunia Ranco Multi in a blue, gray, brown, copper, cream colorway that my dear husband gave me for Christmas. He even went to my LYS and picked it out and purchased it all by himself. Of course earlier, when he was with me one time, I pointed to a wall and said that I would love pretty much any and everything on it. So he knew where the good stuff was.
I am sure that I have tons more to share, but I don't want the post to be too long. Please leave comments and let me know what you are up to.
