Weekend Update

I had a great weekend! The weather was gorgeous, wasn’t it?
Friday I went into the city (New York, that is). I hung out in the village, had dinner at a Cuban restaurant, did a little shopping. I even found something for my secret pal!
I didn’t get home until almost 4 am though. I missed my 12:30am train by a few minutes. Why? Because my cab got pulled over by a cop. It was totally the driver’s fault. We almost got into a serious accident. But we didn’t, and so I would have been fine just continuing along our way up to Penn Station. So I got there a couple minutes late and had to wait an hour for the train. I did have my knitting to keep me company, although I didn’t take it out. At that hour, after a whole lotta wine, I thought it better to just sleep.
This weekend I didn’t get alot of knitting in. Smooch is coming along nicely. I think this tank will be sized alot better. I finally found a knitted tank that I liked the fit of, and so I matched it up to that one. I’m finding the Cotton Classic to be a tad splitty. Has anyone else noticed this? It could also be that I’m knitting it in navy, which makes it harder to see the stitches anyway.
Oh yeah, no more navy in my dye lot. This weekend I’ll stop by Sophie’s and Rosie’s and match up my hanks to what they’ve got. Funny thing is, I think there’s a chance I’ll be OK. I’ll definitely know by Saturday. I expect to get at least the front done my end of week.
I went back on my diet last week. I didn’t say anything at first because I wanted to make sure I could do it. Atkins is so great for sucking you back in. You get on for a few days and immediately lose a few pounds. Very inspiring! I’m down 16 since Christmas (most of which I lost last week or in the first 2 months of the year). I don’t think I’ll stick to this one til I’m all the way down to my goal size either. I like being able to go off it and get back on. It seems more natural that way. And this ensures me that I *can* get back on and keep myself in check if i gain back a few. It also helps with the cravings.
Summer Knitting Schedule
I was over reading Kristine’s blog about the new fall yarns, and it got me to thinking. I’m going to try and not plan any new summery projects after July. I know by that time I’ll be itching to pull out the wool and try something different from the cotton and tanks I’ve been working on now. If I’m successful this will be a big step for me! Usually I don’t plan this kind of stuff out and then one day wake up and realize that I’m done with the season and want to move on. So I’m not convinced it’s going to work, but I will try!

  1. TRUST ME! You will be so glad you didn’t plan more projects….the new stuff is divine. Makes you want it right now!
    I have found the cotton classic splits awful, so if it is just doing it a little, you are handling it well!
    Can’t wait to see Smooch….

  2. We go to Philly by train often enough and that is my biggest fear that we will miss our connection…ugh …you have not helped my fear at all! : )
    I’ve been doing Atkins for a year and have lost 65lbs. and many inches. I can never eat alot of carbs again. The only thing I’ve had go alittle wacky is that I can’t go too low in carbs or I loose my period so I have to find the fine line of continued weight loss and enough carbs to keep my body from going into starvation mode.
    I could use an occasional Atkins chat buddy if your interested let me know…

  3. I am with you on the summer knitting schedule. I am already being enticed by the Ingeborg knitting that is going on~ may have to start something similar in late summer.
    Thanks for the comment on hubby’s sweater! I appreciate you stopping by :)

  4. Good for you, getting back on the lowcarb wagon! Now if I can just hop back on too! :)
    I’m already thinking about Fall projects as well. I’m just not a Summer kind of girl! It seems to me that sitting in a nice air conditioned space and planning for cooler weather helps make the summer heat a little easier to bear!
    I’m back on a sock kick lately, but I have several Fall sweaters on the drawing board!

  5. Great to see other low-carbers out here. I did Atkins last summer, then took a long break, and have been doing it again for about 2 months. I’m not losing as much this time, but that’s okay. If you haven’t already, try the Atkins breakfast bars. They’re very good!
