Ta da! The yarn for my Classic Cardigan and don't you just love the heathered amethyst colorway. This is KnitPicks' organic cotton, the same yarn I used for the Lace-Edged Cardi. I love knitting with this yarn because it is soft, has good stitch definition and is sport weight. I prefer knitting with sport and DK weight yarns. I have hardly used a worsted weight yarn in the last year.
Also on the needles--seed stitch scarf-that-would-be-cowl in white merino and Kid Silk Haze AND Pixie Sticks Scarf in light and dark pink instead of pink and white. I love the pink and pink peppermint sticks I buy at Christmas time so this scarf looks good enough to eat! This will be a Christmas gift. The scarf is angled and has a ruffle on the edges, the reason for the provisional cast on.
Weight Watchers is slow and at times grueling. I have, however, lost 14 pounds and am thankful beyond belief for that much!! I am losing at approximately .6 pounds a week due partly to my age I'm sure, and to the sedentary lifestyle that accounting forces on one. I have started taking a mile walk during the middle of the day and have ramped up my evening gardening duties to weed pulling and edging around the raised beds. Still--SLOW!! At least the scale is going in the right direction!
After a week of the weeding I am putting a sign I found on Pinterest on my door. It says, "Ring bell. If no answer, pull weeds!"
Life is good.
