Bad Blogger, No Cookie

Well, yes, I realize I have been a bad blogger. Is it because of the stealth projects? Nope. Is it because of lack of knitting? Nope. Is it because I am a lazy arse when it comes to making a blog entry? Yes, yes it is.

So yes, I am admitting right now that I have been a bad blogger. I think I just needed a little time away from the blog while working on other stuff, but now I'm back, and I should be updating with some photos and other things in the near future.

So what am I working on?

I'm about to finish and block the Aeolian shawl. It's lovely, the edging is nice, and I'll be glad when it's finished.

Once Aeolian is off the needles, I'm going to begin clue 3 of Evenstar. I had to fall behind on that project since the Aeolian has a time deadline.

I'm also working on some designs that you all should maybe see in July or August. Something big is coming, albeit it's still very loosely in the works and I'm really hoping you all will like it. I'm also about to have some big life changes (like, returning to the USA for one and having a career change for two), so I'll be keeping you all updated on those as they develop.

One last thing I thought I would post here for those of you who don't read my running log, or hell, even know I have one (Getting There The Long Way), I started a weight loss journey in January 2009. 1 year and 5 months later, I have lost 71 pounds and am now 9 pounds away from being at my goal weight of 160 pounds. I'm now wearing medium sized clothing, sometimes smalls, and have donated all the XXL, XL, and L stuff to charity. I have gone from a size 18 jean to a 10, and by the time I hit 160 pounds, I'll be close to a size 8. It's been a tough road, but I have finally changed my whole outlook on food and discovered the reasons I ate the way I did. For those of you who have been supporting me along this journey, I thank you for your encouragement. 9 pounds left, and I'll be celebrating with a new wardrobe!

Congratulations! It will be great to see you again sometime. Will you be moving back home or someplace else?

Thanks for the running/fitness update! I usually catch up on bloglines, and didn't know about the running blog. You are so inspiring!
