The James C Brett Fusion Chunky Baby Blanket (what a mouthful that is) is past the halfway point. I am on the “downhill” section. Had to wind off a huge chunk of the second skein to get the colour right at the join, and I will definitely need it later. It’s a shame that there isn’t more lime green in this – the dark section is way longer than the light.
I’m making myself finish this before starting the cardigan, but I have knitted a small gauge swatch and it looks like it’s going to work.
I found some cute fabric at Fabricland today to line the Fair Isle Bag. It was only $6.50 a metre, so I bought a whole metre even though I’ll probably only use a quarter of it for the bag. That’s OK, I like having some spare fabric lying around, just in case! A few years ago, I cleared out ALL my fabric scraps, and later regretted it.
Now that springtime is just about here (heck, it was raining tonight while I was out walking) I am feeling the need of an internal spring clean, so have started on the raw food again. Today I had muesli, a smoothie, an avocado soup (made in the Vitamix) and salad, and I wasn’t in the least hungry. I’m not committing to a minimum period – just taking it day by day – but I know that I’ll feel better without the cooked carbs (and maybe fit better in my jeans)!
