Last summer, I decided to eat healthier and to eat smaller portions. I just wasn't comfortable in my own skin and I was so tired of my clothes not fitting properly and just the thought of buying clothes in the next size up was so depressing.
I've lost 33 lbs. and I now can knit something for myself in a smaller size...less yarn to buy! Woot! Woot!
This is why I need to finish my current WIP.
|Christmas in July.....it's for real!|
I saw this vest in a Mary Maxim catalog and I fell in love 💚! It's knit from the top down and size 10 needles. I think it'll be perfect for the Fall.
My 3 YO grandson wants a sweater or a hoodie. He requested black, but I really don't enjoy knitting with black yarn, so I selected some Red Heart Yarn in Charcoal. I'm still thinking and reviewing patterns for him.
As if I didn't already have enough things that I want to knit, I joined a couple of different knitting groups on Facebook and some people were already sharing some Christmas in July ideas. When I saw this Santa's Wardrobe Garland I just thought that it was the cutest thing. Yes, I ordered the kit.
Then, I had to jump in all the latest fad of the Giant Cakes of yarn that create beautifully striped creations. I also ordered some Sweet Rolls from Mary Maxim.
|Sweet Rolls...no calories!|
Last but not least, I can't knit all the time, can I? Coloring for adults for a favorite past time these days, so I got a coloring book for me.
I think I'm set for knitting for the rest of the year and probably for 2018. Happy knitting!
