Knitting burns calories
Working away on the belt cardi. I am loving the way the fabric on this is knitting up.
Knitting, knitting, knitting... On a cardi I will never wear. I am not sure how I feel about this. It is a beautiful, extremely well written pattern with more shaping than any I have ever done. And that is exactly why I won't be able to wear it. I myself have an awful lot of shaping. Not the kind that looks good in a lovely shaped cardi with a belt. I am round in all the wrong places, and will look about 6 months along in this in my belly, and 7 in each hip. But I am knitting on. Maybe I will knit super fast and it will burn many calories, making me thin by the time I finish. That is my plan.
I am the domestic goddess here in my universe to the perfect man (yes, they do exist), 5 children, and the rest of the farm. I spend my days enjoying tasks such as changing and/or wiping bums, noses, and mouths. I cook, clean (really that is an out and out lie) and play ref to the domestic WWF. I do not get paid vacation, yet dread retirement. I hope to let other domestic Goddesses know that they are not alone, and there is someone out there that is less perfect than they. So sit back and let me make you feel good about yourself.
