Anticipation Rocks!

Standard

It’s only Thursday and already I am dying for it to be Monday (weigh-in day). Why? Because I know that when I step on the scales I will be at least another pound lighter, which is going to bring me down to 113.whatever. I can’t remember the last time I weighed that. Maybe when I started Uni or something.

So yeah, I can’t wait and I would love to cheat a bit and get on the damn things right now. But I shall be a good girl (for a change) and wait til at least tomorrow morning haha.

Surprises, as well as anticipation, rock too. Today was a particularly difficult day for this whole weight loss thing, as I am down with Tonsillitis and really do crave comfort food. But I got some surprise motivation sent today when I logged into my Facebook and found a message of a rather hot guy who thought I was cute. So if that doesn’t mean I am moving in the right direction then I really don’t know.

And on that note, I am going to curl up in bed with a little satisfied smile on my face and watch Blade (Can’t beat a bit of Wesley).

Zauberball Sock Yarn- I’m in love!

Standard

I have joined a group on Facebook called Nadelspiel. It’s a German group about knitting and crochet etc and there I have always seen people talk about a Zauberball. So I got nosey and decided to google it and see what all the hype is about and OMG I was in love.

A Zauberball is a ball of sock yarn in the most amazing colours. You can get them in all sorts of combinations and not just use them for socks. See below what I have come up with.

It’s not finished yet as I am waiting for more yarn to come in at my local shop but yes, it will be a gorgeous shawl once it’s finished. Thinking about working in some beads around the edges, just not sure on the colour. Advice always welcome 🙂

So if you are now just as curious as I got when I heard of the Zauberball then just have a little google for your nearest dealer.

One word of warning though, the yarn is pretty thin so it’s more something for patient knitters and crocheters, but the colour changes are so much fun that the time just flies past.
