I haven’t posted much lately because I haven’t had anything exciting or blog-worthy to report. I’ve been knitting on the CPNon-Hoodie and am well into the first sleeve. I really am enjoying the pattern and the yarn. When I was considering the pattern, I immediately (as I always do) started to over-engineer it – knit in round, waist shaping, blah blah. All I’m going to do is put a 2×2 ribbed collar on it instead of the hood.
I haven’t been on the treadmill for 10 days or so due to some knee pain. I saw my doctor yesterday and he thought it was tendonitis and that I should stay off the treadmill. So after 4 months of running, I’m switching cardio machines. I did a few workouts on an elliptical and really liked it. More importantly it didn’t bother my knee and actually I felt my legs had a better work out.
Today we went and bought a Schwinn 430. We got a really, really good deal on it. They’ll deliver it on Friday and assemble/set it up for me. I can’t wait to get started on it. Interestingly (to me), Schwinn is made by Nautilus. We bought it from a good company from people we know, so if there’s any problems with it, they’ll take care of us.
We’ve had the poopers out a lot lately now that the weather is milder.
Just a few minutes ago:
I made chicken chow mein tonight. So good but makes such a mess of dishes! Yum. Back to my knitting.
