Finally!

Last week, I did not blog about my weight loss. It was only .2 lbs. I think that it was more like 1/2 lb. They had a different scale and I was wearing denim capri to the weigh-in. I had errands to run and needed to go vote and did not want to wear my usual light weight, baggy weigh in clothes.
This week was better, we had the digital scale back and I wore my usual weigh-in outfit. I lost 3 lbs this week. That make for a total of 12.2 lbs, 12.25 more to go! I am halfway there.
I promised some photos of my Creature Comfort Cardi. Here they are --

This is the oak leaf panel that is along the center back of the cardi.

Here is my oak leaf pin that Michael bought me, last year. It is my favorite pin. The copper is getting a lovely patina to it.
I love the rich eggplant color of this cardi.
Here is a baby cardigan that I designed. I have to get ribbon and buttons for it.

Here is a new shawl. It is my Larkrise to Candleford shawl. I do believe that I like it better than my Tess shawl. It takes less yarn and I love the shape of the back across my shoulders.
I still have not had time to block my Brandywine shawl. I did finish my Leaves A'blazin Shawl. I have to block it, too.
Right now, I am working on the Bulky Comfy Leaf Me Alone Cardigan Vest and a cotton shrug that I will wear this summer.

Congrats on the weight loss-the pool laps have gotten me off my last weight plateau! This new shawl is beautiful-so attractive and comfortable; nice designing!
