I managed to stay on program for the whole day. I made a really super delicious Banana Mango Smoothie that I hope to duplicate tomorrow for breakfast. I made my own scrambled egg this morning and those who know me when see that for the major feat that it is...I don't cook.
I didn't finish the scarf for my niece, but it is half way done. A couple of other things have been on my mind today, like what I want to knit after all the Christmas knitting is done. But, I am happy to report that I have not acted upon my thoughts of future knitting projects. Another major feat for me.
Which came first the book or the yarn? In my case, it was the yarn. I found some Pacific at the shop yesterday, knew I wanted to knit an afghan for my niece's new baby to be and in what colors, but did not know what amounts to buy. In looking at patterns, I pulled this book off of the shelf. I have the first issue which uses worsted (which reminds me at this blogging, I should maybe look at it) and thought maybe I would find some yardages in the book and then go home and find a pattern.
I am pretty proud that on the second day I'm staying pretty true to my holiday knitting, even though I really want to be casting on one of these new cuties.
