I discovered today, to my very surprise, that my chest has shrunk 2 whole inches. So that could be why none of my tops fit as they should. Of course when they were started I was two inches bigger and then they should fit, but now they don't. My only solution to why this happened is I recently lost a few pounds...and by that I mean like five. I must have lost most of it from my chest, god knows I haven't seen it disappear from anywhere else.

Anyway that means my rusted root is officially the wrong size... by a few inches. Soooo I'm going to have to frog it. Actually since I'm almost to the end of the skein I'm just going to start knitting from that end and just knit from the sweater. I hate frogging, and I always tangle my yarn.

So instead of frogging today, since I was sooo disappointed after all my progress...I cast on for a new top. I know as if I don't already have enough to work on right? But I'm in like four knit-alongs and this is the only one I haven't started the actual object in. It's going quick though, I'm already through the first ball of yarn and past the first section in the pattern. It's the tube top from my fitted knits book (gifted to me from my secret pal). I really like it and hopefully it won't look retarded when it's done and on my body lol. Anyway here's a pic, just to show how much is done, there isn't enough of the lace part to show yet.So that's what I've got so far. I'm really excited and can't wait to finish it!!!

Why does that always happen?? I just know that when I quit nursing the same thing will happen to me (but I'll probably gain some weight since I don't have the increased metabolism... and the weight gain will end up on the bottom half!) Just be glad you figured it out now instead of having to reknit the whole thing! I like color pink of the tube top.

I would love to lose 5 pounds. If it bothers you, I can give you some. :D Believe me, I have plenty to spare.

I was hoping that nursing would help me to lose weight, but lo and behold, my husband ALWAYS has chocolate in the house and I'm home alone with it all day long. ARG!

Sorry about your sweater though, it was looking just darling. I hope that the fitted tube top turns out better.
