Goals Update- Week 21

This is going to be a quick goals update. There's not a ton to tell. And I have an exam tomorrow to study for. I love the accelerated pace of my program but what that means is we have an exam every week. I'm actually looking forward to this 1st test so I know what to expect.

1. Thin for Thirty- I lost 3 pounds this week. YAY!!!! Funny what not sitting in a cubicle and eating gummi bears all day will do for you. I'm still above my January starting weight but at least I'm headed in the right direction. It also helps that I don't have any spare money to buy lunch. Yogurt and carrots are doing the trick.

2. Knit from the stash- In fact, I'm not knitting much at all. I made a little progress on the striped socks last night. Mostly, I'm trying to find the balance between studying and free time.

Although I haven't bought yarn this week, a little did show up. Here's my special order from Yarn Pirate.

Yarn Pirate- Citron

Citron

Yarn Pirate- Apple

Yarn Pirate- Sweet Magnolia

Gorgeous, right? I just checked my YP stash and I have 16 skeins. Obsessed much???

I keep trying to resist Yarn Pirate after each of your posts...but I just love that Apple colorway! I might not be able to hold out much longer!

Good luck on your test!

Ack! Gorgeous! I only have one skein and I consider myself lucky. I can see now I haven't been trying...

Those colorways are irresistible. I especially like the ultra-day-glo pink that's peeking through on the right side of the Sweet Magnolia.

Nothing wrong with having 16 skeins of Yarn Pirate. I have one, but I'm not sure what to do with it.

Egads! 16 skeins?! You lucky son of a gun! I have one Punkin Head and have resisted the Apple until - I think - today! You cannot be my sponsor. :)

See? Who needs actual knitting? Just the yarn will do quite nicely. :)
