It seems like everyone is talking about diet and exercise these days, myself included. It’s that time of year, after all. So let me put it right out: My intention this year is to make physical changes, to get off my butt and get moving, to feel better about myself and the way I look. To that end I’ve started Weight Watchers online again, I’ve changed my YMCA membership to a family one so that Dale can go with me, and I’ve joined the Ravelry group lessw8 in 08.
I’m seeking chemical reactions and physical changes. A calorimetry of the mind, body and spirit, if you will.
Speaking of Calorimetry (nice segue, huh?) I finished two in the week leading up to Christmas. Both are for me, selfish little knitter that I am.
The gray one goes with my charcoal gray coat. The yarn is di.Ve’ Teseo and the striping effect is very cool. I cast on 100 stitches and knit until it was about 4 inches wide.
And the brown one goes with my red coat. The yarn is Karabella Boise and it is soft, soft, soft. I again cast on 100 stitches but knit until it this one was only about 3 inches wide.
I’m not a big wearer of hats as I like to avoid “hat head” at all costs. However, sometimes it’s just too cold to go without some sort of head covering and I think these two little headbands will see me through the rest of this winter just fine.
Especially if today’s predicted highs of 57º stick around.
