Watershed #2

Watershed #2, originally uploaded by stitch-by-stitch.

Watershed take 2. How cute is this!!?? I love everything about it. Although if I made it again...which I will...I would keep my eye out for a couple of funny things with the pattern. But no-one will be able to see the glitches except me. I wasn't sure about the colour when I received it, but I love it now. It'll be great once I get a tan!

Watershed #1

My first attempt at Watershed. Lots of errors, but you can barely see them since the yarn is black. Shame it turned out so small though. I'll be gifting this to my 12year old sister-in-law for Chrissy :)

Here are some better shots of my Decouverte. It's great to throw over a singlet or top to add a bit of warmth without bulk. Could have made a size or 2 smaller. But then again, I have lost nearly 11kg since I made it.

Spice Man II

Spice Man II, originally uploaded by stitch-by-stitch.

So I finished my Watershed. I was in need of a small black cardy to wear over singlets at work on a warm day. But it came out far too small. Boo. My fault not being careful of gauge. It's ok. I'll send it to my 12year old sister in law.

I will make another one in a larger size and nicer yarn. But for now, I'll concentrate on my Spice Man socks. Relatively mindless knitting. I love Am Kalten Polar!

Finally, goal weight!

Finally, goal weight!, originally uploaded by stitch-by-stitch.

I did it. It took only 9.5 weeks to get from 75.5kg to 65kg. My next mini-challenge is to get down to 63kg in the next 2.5 weeks. Can I do it?

Featherweight, originally uploaded by stitch-by-stitch.

Finally. It's finished. It only took me 2 months. I love it!

I just wanted to share more of my weight loss journey. These are my measurement changes in 8 weeks. I've lost a total of 9kg now. 1.5kg to my goal weight of 65kg. I might have to shift my goal. I can't recommend Michelle Bridges 12wbt highly enough. If you want a healthy, fast and effective way to get fit and healthy and lose weight, this is the way to go. Next intake is January!
