Itteh, Bitteh Bunnehs!


To Whom It May Concern,

Hey everybody, how's it going? Sorry I've been off the map for so long, I've actually been working for a change! I've been knitting a few things for winter and crocheting these teeny little bunnies for Easter. They're roughly 10cm (4 inches) long and made from a lovely brushed acrylic/nylon blend yarn called New Mosaic. I love it, it's just like mohair, but way cheaper! For extra fluffy cuteness, I brushed them with my kittys' grooming (slicker) brush. The kitties are not amused! (Cue miserable faces/welfare eyes!)

I weighed in on Friday, but to my dismay, I've hit a plateau and I'm still at 55kg (121lbs).  I'm not too stressed though, I've still got the rest of the week to crack it! I was spoiled, my house mate, the fabulous FishPyjamas, bought me a new ramekin (see below). Just look at all the pretty colours! It's so 'me'! Speaking of ramekins, my diet is still going strong. I had a craving for something sweet, so I decided to buy some fruit. I don't normally eat a lot of fruit, because of the sugars (I avoid sugar) and too much fruit upsets my stomach, but I think I'll be OK with some mixed berries, grapes and pineapple. It's better than scoffing chocolates and sweets! For those of you who don't know, I eat every 2-3 hours and only enough food to fit into a 7.5cm (3 inch) ramekin. I eat high protein, low carb, natural foods and avoid bread/grains/potato/sugar/milk/processed foods. Today's intake went as follows:

6:00am - mixed nuts
9:00am - yoghurt, berries and a teaspoon of honey
12:00pm - grilled chicken and a teaspoon of honey/mustard dressing
15:00pm - green grapes
18:00pm - low fat beef goulash

I felt good the whole day, but my neck and shoulders are sore from too much knitting/crocheting. I went into an absolute frenzy when I went to the yarn shop, or as Peri and I like to call it the "crackstore"! Thank fuck my wonderful house mate, Grant was with me, to save me from myself, otherwise I might have spent money I don't have. Thanks, Babe!

Ma crack!
Naturally, I got stuck into this yarn the same day I bought it and I'm having a blast! The boys have requested new beanies for winter, so I bought some lovely Rustica wool/tweed/acrylic blend yarn for extra warmth. It has a great rustic look, hence the name, with flecks of other colours here and there for a truly charming country look! I got the green and last of the charcoal, which, sadly, has been discontinued. I'll post pictures when they're finished.

I'm sorry for all the half-arsed comments I've been leaving on all of your blogs and for the serious lack of posting. I'll try to not let my knitting/crocheting get out of hand. I hope you are all well and having a good week so far. For those still following the Lenten restrictions, we have just 11 days left to go before the end on the 15th of April! Yay! I sense a serious chocolate (ma other crack!) binge coming on, though! Bloody Lindt bunnies! Evil bastards!

"I is cute! You wants to noms meh!"

Stay strong, everyone! All my love.

Cinnamon Brown.
