NaKniSweMonday - Chapter 4

To all my faithful readers, I must apologize for the lack of pictures.  I worked a 9 hour day today, then came home to laundry, Thanksgiving meal planning, trying to squeeze in a workout, and discovering that I have a hole in one of my sweaters that I was intending on washing (Wicked).  Well, thank goodness it is a sweater that I knit myself, and actually have the yarn handy to fix. More on that later.

So, I have completed the left front neck and arm shaping on my February Fitted Pullover.  I am halfway finished with the neck and arm shaping on the right side.  After that is done, I just have to complete the armhole shaping on the back, knit the sleeves, and pick up the neckline and complete it in garter stitch. Should I start panicking? I intend to do the sleeves 2 at a time.  The pattern calls for 3/4 sleeves, but I intend on making mine full length.  I am hoping that I can really put in some sweater time over the weekend. Thanksgiving is making me miss my weekly Wednesday knitting group, since I have to prep the night before. Arrrgghhh!!!  But I am going to enjoy the Pumpkim Flan, Peach Cobbler, Sweet Potato Casserole, Collard Greens, and Turkey with my secret stuffing.... to name a few dishes.  Notice I put the desserts first???

Good news.. since I have been using the Nintendo Wii Fit +, I lost 3.3 lbs.  Lord knows it will come back on Thursday. But, it will be well worth it.

More pictures soon, I promise. Happy Gobble Gobble day everyone!

Have fun preparing all that delicious food. Pumpkin flan sounds awesome! I wonder if they will have any pumpkin desserts at Michael Allen's tomorrow. We will miss you.

You don't need to lose weight!

Congratuations on losing the weight, but you don't want to lose too much or your sweater won't fit!

Maybe I should come to your house to collect those desserts. Just to keep the temptation away, you understand.

Hehe.. ladies, you have me dying laughing over here. Oiyi, it's not like I am trying to lose it. It is just a byproduct of me being addicted to that Hula hoop game on the Wii. Sharon, after Thanksgiving, my sweater will fit. hehe... but I appreciate the gesture of you wanting to help me out.
