Accomplishments

I know, I don't post very often, but here's a couple things....

First off, I finished another shawl. This was a kit and knit-a-long from The Unique Sheep called The Enchanted Wood. The beads were supplied by Ellen from Earth Faire. It was a great experience. I need to take some other pictures that do the yarn color justice but you can see the beautiful pattern.




Friday, I wore it to the office. This isn't the best picture but it's proof that I did. My manager said it was nice to see me actually wearing what I wore instead of carrying it around in a bag. (also you can't tell but another new accomplishment, that's my new office, it has an actual door, this is a huge deal at work to be out of a cubicle)



And last but definitely not least, I've been working to lose weight since Halloween. The picture on the left is actually the picture that got me started. Today I passed a major milestone and a friend asked for a pic. When losing weight slow and steady, it's hard to see sometimes, but putting these side by side shows a difference I'm proud of!
