Diagon Alley Rainbows

Pattern: If You Know Where to Go modified for an afterthought heel so as to not disrubt the wonderful color
Yarn: Crystal Place Mini Mochi, Colorway 101 Not a yarn for a brand new knitter. Single ply, splitty and not necessarily evenly spun. I would hesitate to say "thick and thin", but it does have it's thicker moments.

Tomorrow is Lost Sock Memorial Day!

Had an appointment with the nutritionist yesterday. She reviewed my diet, exercise plan, the whole shebang. Felt that I was doing fantastically, and really had no suggestions except to keep on keeping on. It was good news! She did say I could add more fats to my diet and decrease the protein. That is a nice addition. I had an ounce of cheddar cheese last night....the first since mid February! Yum! If anyone is interested in the secret of my success in loosing 30 lbs in a little less than 3 months, it's religious use of the Wii Fit (at least an hour of aerobic exercise a day), a diet of between 1200-1400 calories broken down to around 35-55% carbs, 20-25% proteins, and 20-30% fats, 80 ounces of water a day and I can't say enough good things about LiveStrong. It's an easy way to keep track of what you want to eat and what you've eaten every day, helping to keep things on an even keel. Track exercise, too, to get a complete picture of how you're doing.

Also saw the eye doctor yesterday. I'd had an incident last week with one of my eyes seeing a ring of distortion in my vision for a few minutes. Kinda sounded like the symptoms of a detached retina to me, but the doctor said it was an "Ocular Migraine." Nothing to worry about and because I didn't have a possible accompanying headache, no big deal. So, it was a good day, all in all!


  1. Love the colorway of that sock.

    Congrats on the nutrition/exercise regime.

    So glad your eye problem was not serious. I was a little worried for you.

  2. I love the colors of your sock too--and the pattern looks really pretty!


I really am glad you're commenting. Please make sure I can find you by insuring you leave an e-mail address. It's so frustrating to have someone ask a question and no way to answer them! Thanks!
