I haven’t posted in over a year! Wow, where do I begin? I have made a lot of my own patterns, and Christmas was a lot of fun and work. I managed to knit one gift a day, which means everyday I made a scarf, hat, or set of fingerless gloves. This year I also added a lot of crocheted squares to Anthony’s blanket. It is pretty big now, and I think it is officially finished.
Last year was pretty exciting since I decided I wanted to get in shape. Weight loss isn’t really a goal. I just really want to feel healthy. I noticed that I was getting out of breath a lot, and I wasn’t een doing that much work to get that way. I started by super gluing a pedometer to my waist. Well, not really, but I did make it a habit to wear it everyday, and to check it every few hours to make sure I was moving. I also started to do some Taebo and Turbo Jam videos, but I didn’t really get into those til a few months ago. I prefer Turbo Jam to Taebo.
This year I invested in a Wii and Wii Fit Plus. It’s only been a few days so there’s no noticeable improvements yet, but I do hope to report changes in a month or so. I have decided to not turn on the Wii until I have finished a Turbo Jam video. I know that Turbo Jam is super fun and totally worth it, but I think if I do the Wii, I will tire myself out with the Just Dance 2 game and I won’t have the energy to do Turbo Jam. Also, I know my son will rather play on the Wii than watch me kick invisible Turbo Jam butt.
Finally, this year I am going to challenge my self in my knitting. I am starting by doing a reversible cabled scarf in gray. It’s not a hard pattern, but I haven’t made a scarf with cables before since it seemed a bit time-consuming. When I finish the cabled scarf I am going to knit the Uncle Argyle Scarf from Son of a Stitch and Bitch. I already bought my yarn, pink and brown, and I have made a back up copy of the pattern just in case I can’t find the book at the library when I need it.
I will post pictures of the things I remembered to photograph soon. 🙂
