Updates for the loyal

Hello, you three... Thanks for stopping by once in a while. Here's what's going on in my world.

BigDaddy has been at bartending class for the past two nights, and will be for the next week and a half (weeknights only). I have made it my mission to do three things while he's gone so much.

1) Workout like crazy-- or at least consistently. Here I am touching my toes... thanks for this, Pat!

2) Finish at least one knitted project. While the second sock is about 3 or 4 inches long so far, I have decided to focus first on a scarf I started for my co-worker, as it is a commissioned piece (gotta go where the money is). Once that is done, I will choose something else to knit until it's finished... Of course, this all ends when Sock Wars begins on 9/22. After the scarf comes a washcloth I started, as I have to return the pattern book to the library.

3) Eat following the WeightWatchers plan. And here is the main reason why:
Monday was a bust, as holidays tend to be, but yesterday I did a good job. Today I will do a good job. Tomorrow I will do a good job. Friday is my day off, and that is a lot of time spent at home, trying to decide whether or not to eat "something else".

Also, I have made a decision. I am no longer going to limit this blog to the comings and growings of my projects. I am going to also include real stuff because, let's face it, whether I knit or purl, whether I cable or cast on, most of you are not knitters (dare I say all of you are not knitters?), and that means you don't know the difference. If that is the case... then you are reading this for another reason, not my things, but me. So I feel a bit obligated to provide a bit of me along with my things.

Hey, a secret reader! That's so cool. I'm glad to know. I think that makes 4 readers... I'm (like) practically famous!

That French Fry photo has an amazing resemblaence to your other famous food/beverage shot, you remember, for the "No 2 Beer on the Planet".

Goo to see your expanding you work, knitting is, (at least for me, not to insult any dedicated knitters!) well, zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Yeah, yeah, you only say that because you've never knit anything! :G

I don't remember how I got here but I've enjoyed reading your blog both for knitting content and because you include your relationship with your projects. OK, that sounds goofy, but with hand knitting the knitter is part of the project.

Anyway, cool blog, nice knitting.
