A nurse who knits…

The boy still wants his sweater!

Filed under: Knitting — yarnnut @ 5:46 pm

I mentioned over dinner last night that my Ariann was a bust and I needed to frog his sweater for my new Ariann.  I got a frown.  When I asked him about his sad face, he replied, “I would have worn that sweater sometimes.”  So… I guess that Cascade 220 will be going to that Ribbed Cardi for my SO.   I’m on the search for another yarn for Ariann.  Any suggestions?  I guess I want wool now since cotton does not hold it’s shape too well.  Hence the weird row gauge.

To compensate for not knitting Ariann, I cast on for some simple socks out of Tofusi.  I love the way it feels so far.  Soft and thin. The underside is not bumpy at all.  I love it.

I am trying to exercise on my days off.  Yesterday I was on the treadmill and eliptical trainer for about 35 min total and I did some lower body strength training.  This morning, I’m going to do my Yoga Booty ballet DVD.  The diet thing was harder.  I went to the Kensington Grill on Friday and met some girlfriends who just moved down from Michigan.  I had a glass of wine at dinner but when I met the girls all hell broke loose.  We had sangrias, some guy gave us shots, and I had a few beers at Rock Bottom Brewery.  I woke up with a raging hangover!  And I’m supposed to be curtailing my alcohol intake.  I haven’t had anything alcoholic to drink since then and I’m really trying not to eat anything processed but last night I broke down and baked some brownies.  I don’t know how people who diet do it!  I am just going to pick myself up and try again.  Hopefully, I’ll be able to get my triglyerides down this year.  I’m practically driving Matt crazy talking about it.



  1. congrats onthe excercising, the eating will come with time. right? small steps. at least that’s what i say to my patients (as i chug my regular coke sitting like a sloth in front of the computer). oh, i saw this the other day, you might find it useful (if anything a reminder): http://www.lifehacker.com/software/food/the-top-foods-for-fighting-cholesterol-228486.php

  2. That was my new years resolution too… but I find it too distracting to knit while I exercise.

    My luck I have a hobby that requires sitting down.

  4. I always tell myself I’m going to watch my alcohol intake. It never works.

    It really wouldn’t work if I had some random guy buy me shots! I’m jealous.
