you know what that means?
if you read my blog but don't ever comment, today is the day...leave a comment and no one gets hurt...i promise i won't bite!
now, on to focus friday and what i focused on this week:
- i did the stairs 5 times a day every day this week again (although we had an 'ice day' tuesday so no work...but, i doubled up the rest of the week and made up for it)
- i had a protein shake for dinner monday - thursday (last nite was rough...i SO wanted to fall off the wagon and go eat mexican...but i didn't)
- i started an afghan for myself and worked on it every day since sunday...i'm determined to finish it in a timely manner...not in 4-5 years (like the husband's afghan) but more like 4-5 months
here are some pictures of the afghan i finished up last week for the husband
it's a 'gentle' ripple pattern (i call it that cause the peaks and valleys are rounded, not pointy like a traditional ripple design
i figured the pattern out myself after seeing several similar blankets on blogs...so i'm not sure if it's 'right' or not...
the husband chose the yarn himself...warning: this blanket is a cat magnet
after making his, i decided i wanted to make one myself but not in a solid color...i wanted the ripples to stand out..so when i saw that one of the chain craft stores had yarn on sale i headed out sunday morning to stock up....
here are the 12 colors in my project tote
note: sophie likes to kick all the yarn out of the tote and take a nap inside...
i plugged the 12 colors into a random stripe generator and follow the pattern it spit out
here's what i've done so far
somehow i ended up making it REALLY wide...but that's just more snuggly goodness, right? but also means it will have to be REALLY long...read: take forever
current feeling about it: i LOVE it!
i need to focus on a few more things this coming week than just this afghan...and i want to start meditating for 15 minutes every day...do any of you do that?
what did you focus on this week?
