So this was one quick FO. I used one ball of peaches & creme and size 7 needles. Some how through the wonderful world of blogland I found this pattern, Anthropologie-inspired capelet from craftster. It called for thicker yarn and size 11 needles, but I took a chance and used smaller of both and it worked out perfectly! its super cute! Here is a close up of the raglan sleeve increases. I loved that I didn't have to do any seaming. You could easily do this in one day! I think I might make a few in all different colors!
L is taking a nap right now but I'll take pictures of her in it right after she wakes up. Providing she corporates. *edit* She did!
I joined a group.
I'm really excited about it. I'm glad I'm finally doing something to get back into shape! I've been doing some resistance training for the past month and have just started jogging(as most of you know).
As for the resistance training... He he he *grin* let me just say that an infomercial got hubby and I hooked. We saw the My Gym on TV one day and thought it looked pretty cool. We don't have a lot of room in our house and wanted something small.(Hubby has wanted something like this for a while now. He has always wanted the bow flex.) I looked on-line for it and it was out of our price range. Then I tried e-bay and found one for a reasonable price. This was the first time using e-bay(I know I'm behind the times) and wasn't sure what to expect. I was worried that this thing would be in crappy condition, but to my surprise it looked brand new. Still in the original box. Then I tried it. It totally made my whole body sore. I really like it and have been doing it 3 times a week since we got it.
As for the jogging, I've only been able to go for 15 minutes or so. But I feel better today than the first day. I can actually breath and feel really good afterwards. I've been going in the morning before the kids wake up. It helps get my day going! I even started some laundry before I went today. Go me! Sorry, I'm not trying to toot my own horn, but I'm just excited about my lifestyle changes! Blogging about it helps me stay accountable, so I hope you don't mind:o) Maybe I'll start up a regular posting... fitness Fridays... weigh in Wednesdays... stay is shape Saturdays...hmmmm I'll have to think about it! Any ideas?!
Have a wonderful week!
I was able to snap a few pics of L! Isn't she a cutie pie?!
Also oh-so-sweet Hubby came home fom work with these in his hands for me! I love lilacs! So pretty and they smell so sweet!
I love spring time!
