As of today, there are only 3 more weeks of classes left this semester. This means a great deal to me, not only because I will have a LOT more time to knit and train, I have more time to spend with hubby and my little pack of pups. I love my little family so, so much. 🙂

I’m making a lot of headway on a commission for one of my mum’s work friends. So far I’ve made a little hat, booties and sweater for this person’s soon-to-be-born niece, and just today I cast on for a simple but lovely afghan. I think I’ll work 8×8 squares, stockinette alternating with lace blocks. I started making one like it a few years ago for my cousin Jocelyn’s baby, but never finished and in fact I frogged it. Let’s hope this one works out…particularly since I’ll be getting paid for it.

I managed to score on the last TLE update! 3 skeins of Wollmeise 80/20 – Lavendel, Grashupfer, and Red Hot Chili. Also grabbed a couple skeins of Dream in Color Smooshy while I was at it. Yeah, I know – I said I wasn’t going to buy any new yarn until the Spring Fling. Weeeell…As one of the gals in the Perpetual Yarn Dieters group on Ravelry said, “Wollmeise is a law unto itself”. Amen, sister-friend!

In about half an hour, I’m heading out to my SnB. Our group has grown to about 8, depending on how many people can make it out. Tonight we will have 6, or so I believe. I had to miss last week because I went out of town to visit Ginger on my March Break, but tonight, I’m going to have a nice pear cider and maybe some hummus and veggies, and knit my heart out!

Not only is my latest destashing list going well (I finished a hat for BIL Marc as well as a teeny bebe hat, yay!), I am starting a totally kick-ass workout routine. I enrolled in a beginner’s mixed martial arts class and Muay Thai, the latter which is taught by my friend Lee. His girlfriend Cyn is the one who convinced me to join. So tonight, I will be going out to Sudbury to learn me some fighting moves! ^-^

Went grocery shopping today with the husband, and right now we are just relaxing and waiting for dinner time to roll around. This time, we got a lot of nice veggies as well as some goodies from M&M Meat Shops, so for dinner it shall be a salad, chicken nuggets and for dessert – a lemon meringue pie! (Eric’s favorite)

OK, off to go work on Marc’s mitaines…bye for now!
