Okay I know it is early, but I have already seen a number of posts on Ravelry about teams for this years Tour de Fleece. Every year I try to join a team and I am always lucky if I manage to spin one skein of yarn! lol. I just never have time in the summer when my son is home from school! So this year I am starting now! (so maybe I will finish a skein or two! by the end of July!)
First off I decided to pick out some of this great merino that I have left to lock spin.
It is 19 micron merino that is almost 6 inches in staple (drools). here a pick of a combed lock!
I can't even. I am starting this today and when this is done I am going to tackle the dyed roving bin (hopefully before July! Lol)
So while I have been keeping up with my walks/sprints/runs (because my son is not big into walking so our walks together are more like sprints, jogs, stops, etc) each week I have not noticed anything helping my weight, but I am going to keep trying, because that is all I can do. I did get some progress done on my current scarf
I started with Iris, then faded to Prism, then faded to a super bright Dive. I plan to make some changes and give this a go again with some Adrift. I would say it is coming along and about 3/4 done and I love rainbow so this is definitely a keeper for myself.
Also I do not know about you but I lose stitch markers like it is no ones business, now granted I think my son is collecting them, but I ran out. So I was using yarn as stitch markers, then I decided to make my own. Lol. So I made some donuts first.
These are galaxy donuts. My son is obsessed with the solar system. We are making paper mache planets and only have Jupiter and Saturn left (thank god). My son already took a few of these donuts when he thought I wasnt looking, so I do not have any for myself until I find out where he is hiding them. Lol.
I also made these spiral ones which I am using on my current project and these Unicorn ones. I would do some of it different if I made more, but at this time I now have stitch markers again! I am selling some sets since I thought it would be silly to cook only a few so I made a bunch at a time.
I am trying to be more positive although the lack of weight loss hasnt helped, but I keep telling myself things take time, but its the unknown of how long that is the hard part. Until next time.
