A couple of weeks ago I was very lucky to thrift 6 balls of Sugar ‘n Cream Sport cotton. Finding cotton in NZ that is not natural or white or hideously expensive is virtually impossible. So I was thrilled to snap it up. The only problem was the colour. Mint green. I loathe it with a passion. It’s the colour older women who knit choose to knit baby clothes in when some pregnant person decides they don’t want to know the sex of the baby. My mother will whip it out to make booties at the mere hint that some woman she may have once met briefly 5 years ago has skipped her period. So I’m finding the colour slightly blah. But it’s 8 ply compared to the bulky 10 ply cotton I last worked with and it is a dream to crochet with. So I decided that it is perfect to whip up a little pile of baby washclothes. They make for blissfully mindless stitching in the unexpected sunshine (I desperately need mindless relaxing right now) and besides I can’t think of anything more fitting for mint green cotton than to wipe my future babies bottom with it!
I lost 500 grams at my weigh in this evening. I’ve been exercising a lot lately including walking up a hill (quite a big deal for lazy ol’ me!) to the local water tower several times a week. I’ve now lost 9.6kg (21.1lb) and although I was hoping to hit a nice even 10kg before I see the fertility doctor on Thursday I can’t be unhappy about how well I have done. I have less than 15kg to lose before I can be referred for fertility treatment.
