|This is what full tree pose looks like.|
My first appointment with her (as a trainer)? It's TOMORROW. I am so excited! We did a quick look-see in the gym before I came back to the office, and I can't believe how much I'm looking forward to this. (note to self: remember your spare sneakers)
Oh, and I can knit what I want again :D I finished Kimery's cowl last night. I actually would have knit another couple of rows, but my stupid circs popped off the cable. *sigh* I don't think I'm much harder on my circs than anyone else, but this is the FOURTH set that's popped on me. I'm rethinking getting myself a set... I may just follow the Harlot into the land of straights and DPNs. I managed to rescue what I had and bind off, which left me a teeny ball of leftovers (but they were leftover from the mittens anyway, so the cowl is a full two balls and a tiny bit extra). I noticed one thing I messed up though, which was probably making it harder to knit. I DOUBLE twisted when I cast on, so I've got a mobius cowl that twists twice. Not a big deal, and it still looks great. I can't wait to give it to her!
Now I can get back to my one-row scarf and finish that one, and I can get back to putting the blankets together! (poor Rob, he's getting worried that it still won't be done when he arrives). The Diagonal Rib scarf requires a bit more concentration, so I think the one-row is going to become my go-to pattern for plain vanilla knitting. It's one row. And it's easy to tell where in the four-stitch combination you're at. I can pick it up and put it down at any point and still be okay. (oh, and speaking of the Harlot... I found out she's COMING! HERE! To Janie's!!!! I am so excited I could spit! (but I won't. I'll just sign up for all the classes she's teaching. She's here for THREE DAYS!!!!)
I too am so excited to get a chance at meeting the Yarn Harlot!! But my calendar says she'll be there on a Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday... I'm sure we can figure something out!!ReplyDelete
Oh, and, good job on the yoga!!
Wait, when is she comeing & how did you find out!ReplyDelete
You go girl!! I have never been able to try yoga because of certain physical issues I have so I'm jealous. I love my swimming and I can rock the weight machines but I have to be really careful with the weight-bearing stuff. Everyone has their days. It's not having a down day that defines you, it's what you do when you get up! And you got up and kicked @$$!ReplyDelete
I have popped a couple of circs but I could never go back to using straights. I use dp's a lot for small things like socks and infant hats but I very rarely use straights anymore. I am slowly investing in Addy Turbos since I have yet to ever pop one of those. The bamboo ones bite the dust the fastest which stinks cuz I actually love knitting with bamboo and wood. I use a lot of slippery yarns;o)
So... do we get to see a pic of Kimery? I'm finishing up a Holden Shawlette and thinking about a sweater knitalong. SO many projects; so little time!
Love your blog girl!
Awesome Lynne!!! I have poor balance and suck at Yoga! I do it at home so I don't end up injuring someone beside me.ReplyDelete
Good luck with the trainer tonight. :o)
My workout is skating the WHOLE canal and back tomorrow.
WHAT? Yarn Harlot is coming??? OMG! I want her to sign my books!! I sooooo want to meet her!! I am such a big fan! So much so that I even look like her! LOL! Where is the info on her coming??
