Tree Jacket Progress Report
After some issues with the neck, the Tree Jacket is coming along very nicely, I love the ribbed turtleneck I'm doing instead of the called for lacy neck deal. I'm a few inches past the armholes so I decided to take it off the needles, put on my big padded bra I plan to wear with it, and give it a try on:
I'm really loving this thing so far, it's simple but with just the right amount of interest. And the pattern is written incredibly well, I'll definitely be checking out more Zephyr Style stuff in the future.
This past weekend I took my very first trip to the Saint Paul Farmers Market and it was awesome! Vegan paradise I tells ya, cheap and gorgeous veggies as far as the eye could see. We got a ton of stuff for a tiny amount of money and I even ran into someone from the Tuesday knitting group at Borealis. There are a ton more pics here, but here are some of my faves:
Well, I should get dressed and get my stuff together for the gym. Working out might not be the most fun thing in the world but it does feel good afterword and when I exercise regularly I don't have to be anywhere near as strict about what I eat. After losing almost 30 pounds with Weight Watchers last fall/winter, I've actually been doing really well on the maintenance part of the program which is way harder for me than losing weight. I really thought Weight Watchers was going to be totally lame but it really works for me and is super vegan friendly which was shocking to me.
