Monday Minus Three

I am happy to report today that I lost another three pounds, making my total weight loss of 19 pounds since September!

I started a new exercise routine seven months ago to get into shape. I’ve had rheumatoid arthritis since I was 16 years old, so exercise has become a must. My exercise routine has developed into a habit that keeps my knees super healthy. The bonus – weight loss!

I’m also thankful today to Melissa for sponsoring the Bronte-Along. I’m so happy I finally know the story of Jane Eyre. I finished watching the movie and reading the book over the weekend – I just love this story! Inspiration for my crafty project finally struck me. At one point in the movie, Jane starts wearing a red scarf around her neck. It was so cool seeing Jane grow into an independent woman, so outspoken and bold for her day!

I thought it would be fun to make an independent woman’s scarf of my own with this pomegranate yarn I had in my stash, based on a lacy pattern in Joelle’s knitting book.

The Bronte-along group is moving on to Wuthering Heights, so it’s a good thing I’m a fast knitter. I can be a slow reader, so I might have to rent the movie for the next one to keep up with the group. All in all, a pretty good Monday!
