Ravelry Strikes Again

I've been sticking to my yarn diet recently and the longer I go, the easier it seems to get. I did get some "free" yarn from a fellow Ravelry member. It's a beautiful cotton/linen boucle and I can't wait to knit up a swatch. I've also sold or traded some yarn. I've finished the Uptown Boot Socks for my mom (no picture yet, but mom loves them!). I was working on my Indigo Ripples skirt and found out there was errata and I had to rip back 15 rounds. BUT, it's now finished! I've worn it several times and here it is....

I'm now working on a Tuscany shawl from No Sheep for You out of SWTC Bamboo in the Tequila colorway. I like how it looks, but it's slow going. I'm trying to keep my projects to a minimum, but am tempted to start something a little faster too. Maybe I'll pick my sock back up.

Anyway, on other fronts... I've been trying to get out and walk 3-4 times a week. There's a circle around the neighborhood that is a little more than 2.5 miles. It has several big hills and enough other stuff that it doesn't get boring. Unfortunately, it's quite hot and humid here right now, so the best time to go is early. Today is spotting rain and I have to take the girl and stroller. I'm going to skip it today. I've been steamcleaning carpets, cleaning house/doing yard work and baking. It's all stuff that got pushed to the side when I was working on preschool graduation and finishing my Indigo Ripples. I'm also working on gathering stuff for a garage sale in a week and a half. I'm getting rid of tons of baby/kid stuff! It would be so nice to find something when I want it!

I think we're getting into our summer schedule, so HOPEFULLY I'll be posting here a little more often!

I hope you know how inspiring your skirt is! I'm using it as a reminder of what I will be able to do for myself when I get down to the size I want to be.

Oh, and you had best wear it to guild next week!

You're back... but then again, my blog is rather neglected (while all my projects on Ravelry are mostly up-to-date). The skirt is lovely! I wish I were as dedicated as you are to getting out for exercise. I even have a gym membership more neglected than my blog!
