Ignoring You

There's not a lot of blogworthiness in my life today. I really just want to go back to sleep - it's one of those lazy hazy days made all the more-so by the few falling leaves drifting to the ground, and my staying up too late last night watching "Miracle". I love Hockey movies.
Hockey 2

I rejoined Weight Watchers last night. I'd been doing pretty well on it, and then S had his accident that had me working those insane hours that made it impossible to make a meeting. Working those dreadful hours meant food was whatever and whenever, and so I promptly gained back what I'd lost and then some.
So back on I go, to a new location closer to home, and I think I'll really like this group. It's a small, but vibrant bunch, with people in all areas of their process. Not to mention that the meeting is roughly 75 yards from Cloverhill which just so happens to stay open late on Thursdays (for some reason, most of the yarn shops - at least in this area - are open late on Thursdays. Couldn't they get organized and have different late days during the week? Then those of us who work for what constitutes to some as a living could support all our LYS instead of having to pick and choose...). That means if I go straight from work to the meeting - oops! I'm early! I'll just meander down here to waste some time...

In any event, I have a very specific (and yet vague) goal, which I may share later. I might also put up a "progress update"... we'll see how much I feel like sharing.

I'm generally opposed to Knit Along's for a variety of reasons, mostly that they just don't appeal to me, but Bess mentioned a project that got my juices flowing, and it seems to have had the same affect on Annie, since Annie suggested she do one too, and so it looks like I'll be working on an aran some this fall, with no deadline at all, and holiday gifts will still have to come first.

So GB gets home tomorrow, and we're going to a show tomorrow night... then Monday I may or may not post, as it's a holiday, and Knit Knite. So have a wonderful holiday weekend - fall and sweaters are soon to come!

Hello Amie:

I was going thru some old posts on the KR Forums and I saw one where you said you hate using patterns. I thought, hey a kindred spirit! I'm just a beg/intermediate knitter but I hate patterns, and it's like getting a root canal when I have to follow 'em. I am currently turning what started out as a sweater into a fall poncho, and having no regrets.

Best of luck with your WW efforts!

I'm a huge fan of WW. I originally lost quite a bit of weight while on WW about 5 years ago. Unfortunately, the stress of school got to me last semester and I sort of slid off the wagon and gained some of the weight back. However, I'm trying to be diligent and get back into the program (WW works, but it's not easy!).

I hope you'll keep us up to date with your efforts!

LOVED Miracle on Ice....I thought it was a great movie. Course I am old enough to have watched it happen. I love hockey movies too! Have a great holiday weekend.
