I have figured out how to fool myself into exercising AND it involves yarn! I can't believe it took me so long to figure this out - about 6 weeks ago I decided that I could only buy yarn if I exercised - for every week that I worked out 4 times, I could spend $10 on yarn. This was intended to get me in shape/lose weight, and cut down spending - it's totally worked (with a few blips on the yarn side - after all I had to buy yarn for my mom's shawl!) - I'm getting in shape and I got to order luscious yarn from the Loopy Ewe:
My own personal yarn pirate is keeping an eye on the loot. You'll be seeing more of this, as I can't wait to play with it! (And yes, I did go a tad over what I'd officially 'earned,' but that just means I can't start the next cycle until I work it off.)
And, I finished the Sarcelle:
The BikeJerk is working about 7 million hours a week lately, so no modelling photos just yet, but at least you can see the (upside down) butterflies. I'm quite pleased with it - just the right size and thinness (and gorgeousness) to go with a dress I'm wearing to a summer wedding in a few weeks.
Finally, almost done with the TOFUtsies socks:
I have to finish them ASAP, but I couldn't resist casting on sock #2. I felt sort of neutral toward the yarn at first, but I am rapidly growing attached to it. The feel of the knitted fabric is really enticing - smooth and pliable and, strangely enough, cool to the touch. Finished photos by Thursday - and then, let loose the hounds of the Summer of Socks!
