Mixed News

Well, my husband is still out of town but get he should hopefully get back around 11:30 tonight, if there are no flight delays. Last night I worked on the sleeve for the Pea Pod cardigan. I ended up ripping it back 3 times. I was over-thinking the pattern. When I just stopped and knit exactly what the pattern said everything looked fine. I got about an inch done so no pictures. I' should get much more done tonight.

With happier news I'd like to share a rare picture of myself:


Yes this is my chubby hand with my wedding rings. When I got pregnant I came to a point in December 2005 where I could no longer where my rings comfortably. It's now August 2007 and I still haven't lost the weight to wear them. It's not like they are extravagant JLo type rings, but they're mine and I am proud to wear them. This past weekend we went to a family friend who happens to be a jeweler and he sized them up for me. I feel like I just got engaged all over again! I can't stop looking at them! The picture doesn't do them justice at all. I couldn't get close enough to get the brilliance of the diamonds without getting a blurry picture. I'm so excited to be able to wear them now! I'm still losing the pregnancy weight slowly so I will hopefully be going back to have them sized down again. It's worth the money!

Angela -- If it makes you feel any better, my youngest is now 9, and I cannot get my wedding ring OFF!! Unfortunately, I don't think I can blame it on baby weight anymore. :(
