The only way I've EVER been able to lose weight and still BE HAPPY: good ole Weight Watchers!

Have officially lost 15lbs so far.

You know...your clothes belong in a museum...that's how gorgeous they are!!!

What a lovely color! I, too, congratulate you on your weight loss. How wonderful that you will have all of these wonderful items hanging in your closet...waiting for you when you deem yourself ready to wear them.

You are a lovely lady...both on the inside AND outside.

I'll wear this peacoat Fall/Winter 2010. I'm still losing weight, so I knit this (and all current WIPS) to fit me by Fall. PMA. The upper body fits great, but the "caboose" is still tight!

Pattern: Yank Peacoat by Bonne Marie Burns
Book: Mason-Dixon Knitting Outside the Lines
Yarn: Knit Picks City Tweed HW
Color: Romance Red



The Back










I have some Indigo Blue (alpaca/wool blend) in my stash to knit another Yank.
Not now, but later. It's called "Chunky AL" by Elsebeth Lavold. I've had it for years.
This is beyond gorgeous..and you don't try socks?

Lovely coat, Artlady and it is going to be lovely on you come fall. I'm sure you look good in red with your dark hair. What can I say about the coat. It's perfect in every way. We've come to expect it of you, you know. And the buttons....
