Saturday- So Wanna See A Difference?

Ok this is project # 3 for the New Year... I could have finished it tonight but Adam just won't stop playing with me. Hide and Seek, Ball, Reading a Book, Band Practice, Watching a Movie... you name it we did it today. This Nana is DOG tired. So can you guess what this will be? I bet Jane and Shelly can.

I finished the KAL, it was designed by Janet Nogle and was done on the 2009 Knitting Calendar Yahoo Group I don't remember if it had a name, sorry, but I LOVE it. I will make a few more of these for sure in different colors. This is FO #1 for 2009

I made an ETSY sale this weekend too, just a dishcloth. But of course I can't find my dishcloth box so I had to hurry and knit up another one to send out. It's my Shamrock Bobble pattern. I was sure glad I remembered how to do the Bobble LOL This is FO #2 for 2009

And now for the shocker... I got my web cam to work today, finally. So I took a face shot of myself today to compare with a picture I had just before I started this weight loss process.

So do you wanna see a difference?

Wow! You look ten years younger today than you did six months ago. Way to go. I bet you are feeling very accomplished!

I like the knitting calendar cloth. I need to start joining these KAL's more often. But I did get a hat done yesterday. Yay!!!

As for catching 4 yr olds...good luck on that one. I'm still trying to catch my 2 yr old, and now my little baby is crawling.
Have a great day!!

You look beautiful! You looked beautiful before, but not as happy. Congratulations!

Quiltgrany said...

You look so healthy and so amazing too! I agree with sailorcross that you look 30 years younger! And look at your hair! It is beautiful too. You have worked so hard and have come a long way and have set great goals. You are doing an amazing job Kat! And having to be a Nana helps too - playing with the grandkids is good excerise!

Keep it up girlie! I love following your progress daily.
