I give you the Second Work Socks!

The yarn is Trekking XXL, in a colorway that is compellingly named "101." I kind of like that the stripes don't match--when they're way off, I don't have to be bothered by the near-match. Rather than beautiful poetry, these socks are earthy prose.

And since the temperature today dropped to the chilly mid-40s (that's chilly after mid-70s), they're currently on my feet.

I've only got one square to go on Abby's Afghan. And I made some progress on both of my other socks today. I'm feeling pretty good about that.

Last night I, shall we say, used up some Flex Points on my diet. (I don't think a cheeseburger and fries really constitute "falling off the wagon." And the Diet Coke totally mitigated the rum. But, like a good girl, I counted the points anyway.) I really like the fact that Weight Watchers has wiggle room built in--that way, I could pick right back up today without feeling like a loser. Tomorrow I need to remember to weigh myself. I'm trying to prepare myself for the possibility that I haven't lost any weight--I've probably got some water weight hanging around. But I feel very good about my eating habits this week. I'm becoming a Popcorn-itarian. Plain popcorn only has 1 point per 3 cups, and since David told me about the clever paper bag-microwave trick, I've been popping up a storm!

That's cheating!

Pretty socks! I remember them now, nice and plain and ribbed. I'll have to learn how to do that for my next pair so they lose that "stockinette sack o'foot" look of plain socks. How much of a pain is it to rib that much?

I used to have a "weigh in" outfit I wore every week to WW (the pants were very lightweight). In fact, I boosted David into the Goodwill donation box once when I thought I'd given away the pants. Turns out they were in my closet tucked under something else, but now David can tell people about the time his mother tried to give him away.
