Silly Picture and FOs
So...here I am making the silliest face in the world while Ian was taking my picture on my NEW bike- an Electra Townie 21D. Isn't it soo cute??!! (and, for those of you who don't know me personally, I'm REALLY short - 5'1" - so the bike may look very small, but it's actually the perfect size for me) LOL!
Ian, the kids and I had a blast riding our bikes up and down our street (and down to the local playground). The kids had the most fun watching me wobble and tilt on my bike because I haven't been on a bike since I was about 11 years old. They thought I was sooo funny - and I was slightly humiliated and embarrassed. Tim was very nice and rode his mountain bike next to me down to the playground, "just in case....I...fell". Thank, Tim. (half sarcastic, half gratitude)
This past week, though crazy, was pretty productive - knitting-wise. I was able to finish the Golle Molle Baby Cardigan (Ravelry link), start the kids' Hai -Riyo dragons (Ravelry link) for Easter, finish knitting and designing a new free pattern (will be up on Ravelry soon!) for Ivy Brambles, and finish up my Polwarth handspun yarn for this pattern (Ravelry link). (Which I hope to start today!!!)
Don't have too much time for blogging today, but I at least wanted to share some pictures of my FOs.

Oh, and I'm up to 54 pounds weight loss on Weight Watchers. Woo-hoo!!! I've gone down 5 pants sizes, 1 bra size and 1 shirt size. I've been walking 12 miles a week, doing yoga every day and lifting weights - light ones for now. Only bad thing about that is...I'm sooo super hungry all the time. Argggh!!! I've had a craving for thin spaghetti with meat sauce (not just ground turkey, but real meat!), garlic bread and a chocolate milk shake. Man, I wish those meals-in-a-pill from the Jetsons cartoon were already invented.....
