2.2 and 22, good for me!

Well, today it worked!


Lost 2.2 lbs! Yaaaay!

I am finding out my biggest thing is lay off the salt. Which, while I add no salt to things, is easy enough to find in what I make. This is especially true when I am lazy and decide to make something simple for dinner, like ramen soup. So, a bit more vigilance on that, maybe I will get somewhere. I also found the reason for last week's uptick. I won't go into detail, you can read it here...
Amazing how something annoying on one blog, can be hilarious on another!

And if my count is correct, I have 22 hats (shown below) for my donation to Shop for a Cop. I am using yarn (mostly) from my stash. (Hence some of the onesies and twosies, color wise.) I have until around mid-December to finish, but I think I better turn and burn so I am not sitting, knitting frantically, while wanting to curl up in the fetal position and cry the night before the get together.


I know the snowboarder hats look nice, but I think the majority will be standard watch caps, I find them easy to knit when I am busy. The snowboarders aren't HARD, really, just that I have to be a little more on the ball when I am doing the flaps, and connecting the flaps to the main hat. More than one had ear flaps more like eye patches, or something, as I got them too close. I have since found a way to avoid that, but I still like the ol' watch cap for rippin' out product...

Calling Santa Claus, temp elf on line one...
