OTN, and goings ons.


Basic top down raglan cardigan, in Peace Fleece "Grassroots" Drool. I love this yarn/color. I am close to taking the sleeve stitches off and working on the body. I need to find some freaking awesome buttons.

Cabled shorties for Bodhi, in Peace Fleece "Blueberry Borscht" . Just inserted a three strand braided cable down each side. Nearly knit to the gusset now.

Celtic Tote by Jennifer Tallepeneni... (sp?) in Peace Fleece "Sakhalin Salmon" About halfway done with the front. This one is slow going as I have to have my chart, and I have to not have a toddler rip said chart to pieces. But it'll get done someday.

So, I LOVE peace fleece apparently. I am going to put in another order for 1-sweater quantities for each of the kids, and some DK for socks, shawls, etc. I also plan on a Knitpicks order for some Palette.


In non knitting news, I have to get myself a little healthier. Staying up a little too late these days, eating a little too much crap, and not walking any more (does 2-3 times a month count?) is not adding up to Mama feeling very good. I also am at the top weight for my "happy range" and want to drop like 5 lbs. So back to counting what I eat just for a while, because one doesn't need three leftover peanut butter cookies in one day.... ;-)

I didn't count what I ate yesterday but it was generally good. (forget about the cookies...) I made curried lentils for lunch, with raita and rice. Breakfast was two eggs in corn tortillas with a tablespoon of cheese and some chili sauce. Dinner was some homemade Hungarian Potato soup (and my was it divine! next time, light sour cream and less butter...) with biscuits and salad and 1 beer.

My problems usually lie in slightly overeating, and snacking on chips, etc if I have them around. I ate some bbq stax while cooking lunch when some fruits and veggies would have been better!

Before bed though, while we were watching Avatar with the kids and I was knitting, instead of grabbing another drink (which tends to lead to Too Much and staying up later than necessary...) I made a cup of skullcap tea and had a couple bites of some tasty ice cream. Yum.


This is also that time of year when my kiddos leave for their fathers for extended visitation. This weekend happens to fall right before it, so instead of 15 days they will be gone 17, then another 18 later on. :-( I miss them so badly when they go. Although it's a little easier these days with Bodhi getting so big, he keeps me hopping. And I will work more hours, and get some home improvement jobs done as well. It's still hard though.
