It has been a crazy couple of days. An awful lot of things - positive and negative - brewing all at once, it seems. Who knows how it will all work out.

In the meantime, I've been working on this afghan for a holiday gift. I had planned to have some stunning pictures to demonstrate the progress, which is really going quite quickly, but the camera isn't cooperating, and the pictures are either coming out too bright - as in all white, with a tiny pinkish glow - or too dark - as in all black, with a faint pinkish glow. So pictures may have to wait, which is okay, because I'm doing different colors than they recommended, because I chose Plymouth Encore instead of Lion Brand Wool Ease. Just like it better. But the color pattern that I chose, while looking great laid out on the floor of my home, is looking a bit funky right now. Once more colors are added and the pattern is clear, I'm sure it will be stunning. I also decided to double-strand it, so it's coming out nice and thick and squishy.

I also wanted to suggest that everyone who has a tv watch Jack and Bobby. I think it's going to easily be the best show on the air this fall, and I was very impressed by the first episode. The whole premise is fascinating to me and has really had me thinking - what makes someone do something so immense an act as becoming president? Were they different as children... if we'd known, would we have seen it? Are they normal people in abnormal circumstances, or is there something, some spark, that the world doesn't see right away? I waited eagerly for the premiere, and watched thoroughly impressed with the presentation, the performances, and the character development. Even the standard series-beginning-requisite-exposition was handled smoothly, and felt less like "catch up" than part of an already well-oiled machine...
So enough fawning over the show, just know where you'll find me every Sunday night at 9 pm for a while...

And for those who don't scan every inch of this blog daily, I've added a small section in the sidebar to keep up with my WW progress. I've only had the one Weigh-In so far, so it's not all that exciting, and I don't think I'm ready to admit my goals publicly just yet, although GB (the greatest husband in every other state but mine - he'd be in mine if he was ever in it) has promised that if when I meet my goal, he'll buy me an entirely new wardrobe. So there's some incentive. And having to fess up in front of the WW counselors, and now here online, is an added culpability incentive. So I WILL NOT FAIL.

Hey Amie,
I really like the afghan! I'm looking forward to seeing the colors youve chosen and how squishy it is!

I saw a bit of Jack and Bobby too. I enjoyed it. I've got to be careful though, I get sucked into the WB's shows, even if they are trashy!

Congrats on WW. I joined curves a little under a year ago and it has honestly changed my life... or maybe i changed my life and curves just fit in. I'm not sure. whatever the case, the first step is going and every other step helps! Keep up the great work, and remember to be honest with yourself!! (sometimes, thats the hardest part for me)

Hi Amie,

I too, am waiting to see the pictures! I saw that afghan in the LB catalog and thought it looked pretty neat. I bet it'll be great in the Plymouth Encore.

I think it's great that you've started WW. Having the support of the group and your GB is a tremendous help. The new wardrobe is a pretty cool incentive, too! ;)

Hi Amie! I am in love with that afghan! Like everyone else mentioned, I cannot wait to see it :) Oh, that new digital camera sounds sooo cool. My DH and I have been looking at a few of them ourselves. I have one now, but it will soon be "put out to pasture", because it is so buggy. Yea!! KNIT OUT! I hope I see you! I will definitely keep my eye out for you!
