Decouverte FINISHED!

Decouverte, originally uploaded by stitch-by-stitch.

Yay, it's finally finished. What do you think? I really like it. I'm wearing it today as it's a bit fresh but not really cold.

It's coming along nicely now that I've finally finished Decouverte. What a lovely yarn to work with. But we all know my love for Wollmeise! The colours look lovely together.

12wbt with Michelle Bridges

I have a few extra kilos on me since giving birth to a giant. I have 5kg to get to pre-pregnancy weight. And I'd like to lose a further 5kg to get to an ideal weight. So I've joined up with a friend to do Michelle Bridges' 12wbt. In this program she gives you every exercise you need, be it gym equipment, gym classes, at home with DVDs or outside in a park.

She also gives you a complete food menu, sticking within 1200cal limit. So far the meals have been more than delicious! Tonight it's lasagne and it looks like this. Mine has come out exactly the same! One of the excellent things about Michelle's recipes, is that you always use so many fresh fruits and vegetables. It's teaching me so much about food. Which is invaluable. Especially to maintain my goal weight at the end. Oh, and my toddler eats everything aswell!

In 2 days (Monday and Tuesday) I have already lost 1.5kg. Yay me.

Sockweight Cardigan

Featherweight Cardigan, originally uploaded by stitch-by-stitch.

While I wait for some more Malabrigo Sock for my Découverte, I thought I'd cast on a Featherweight Cardigan. But I'm using Wollmeise sock yarn in Maus Jung and Natur. The fabric on 3.75mm is gorgeous and soft. More lovely mindless knitting. Perfect for a trip to Sydney while the kiddies sleep.
