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.
