Work In Progress

I'm half way through seaming the baby blanket and it's actually nowhere near as tedius as I expected. And just as Rudee predicted, I'm getting a lot better at mattress stitch!
The top two rows are sewn together already and the middle row is ready to add to it.
I also took time yesterday to knit up a baby hat for my hair stylist who's baby is due the end of the month.

I knit most of it while sitting on the beach yesterday with some friends from work, and finished it up last night. I'm also going to give her the Juniper Bonnet I made a couple of months ago because I think it's such a pretty little thing. I just have to find the right ribbon for the ties.

And last but not least, I completed my first week on WW and lost 6 pounds! The first week is always the most dramatic but it's good for my motivation. The average loss is usually 1-2 pounds per week, which is why it's such a healthy way to lose. The bonus is that I had more energy this week too.

Happy weekend!


  1. Well done - on all your projects!

  2. Yes, Rose.....well done! .....and 6lbs is not to be sniffed at.

  3. It's looking beautiful! Congratulations on the WW success. That is indeed a big deal--especially since you're doing it the right way. Keep up the good work.

  4. I love that blanket, but I'm not sure I have the patience for that much seaming!

    I'm joining WW today! I'm going to try the online program. I think 6 pounds is amazing! I've never lost more than 3 in a single week.

  5. Very cute hat and the blanket looks like it is coming along nicely! Great colours in the blanket.
