I got Cinched!!!!

I started on the Cinch Inch Loss plan 6 weeks ago and I have lost 14# and several inches! I have no cravings and my blood sugars stay level. I can't believe how easy it is for me to finally lost weight, without losing muscle mass. I love the taste and the easyness of the plan. I found that no only the wight loss is great but the cleaning supplies are superior to any I hav ever used. And they are "green". Even Ophra loves them! Check out a clip from her show...

I started knitting a felted purse and I am loving it.... I am using a rust colored cascade 220 as it looks like brown leather color. I am using a 2 old bags pattern.

Let me know if you have any questions about Cinch Inch Loss Plan...or Shaklee.

More socks

I finished another pair of socks using KnitPicks Simply stripes. They turned out great and match all the way down to the kitchener stitch where just on row is different. I am too lazy to take pictures... haha.

I borrowed my dad's carpet steam cleaner yesterday and did the heavy traffic areas. Nice and clean now. We rent and he told us it was cleaned before we moved in but it stank of ciggie smell and I got a lot of black water. I went over twice. It is been nice and cool and windy so it dried fairly quick...

I am itching to start another knitting project but can't decide what to do. Am I the only one who experiences this? Of course I have a pile of knitting books ready to be picked up at through the inter-library loan. They all came at once... maybe I will find just the right project. I am putting off knitting more Master Knitter swatches for the time being. I have 6 done, having ripped #7 out. I used a skein of Galway and it had way too many knots in it. I contacted Plymouth yarns and they said I need to return it to my yarn store....not very freindly customer service there. UGh.
