Good morning. My brain is still waking up as I’ve had a late start to this Saturday. My Aleve is still kickin’ in so I’m waiting for that sinus headache to be banished away. I really meant to post this week but time was several steps ahead of me I’m afraid. Workouts have been my focus, my husband inspiring me. I’ve completed a third week of 4x a week and I’m feelin’ really good about that. I wanted to get in a third session of weights yesterday but I was still sore from Thursday which had some added in exercises to target abs and thighs. I didn’t want to injure anything. So Friday I made myself power walk a longer distance: 4.59 miles in 1:09:07! I listened to a 90’s Dance mix on Soundcloud since iTunes’s selection of mixes are usually not the original artists. I’m happy power walking; when I’m out pounding on that pavement I’m in the zone, not wanting to quit til I reach my front steps!
On the knitting front, the weather is slowly changing here in the East Bay. We’ve had warmer temperatures for a few weeks now. I’ve been a monogamous knitter on Cupcake’s jumper. A month ago you saw everything but the sleeves. Here is where I am now:
Earlier I had thought I was home free as my tween had first told me she had wanted 3/4 length sleeves. Of course she changed her mind! I knitted an extra 25 rounds to get to the ribbing on the first sleeve. With the numbers now known, I am zooming along on sleeve two. I have 10 more rounds to knit and then 10 rounds of ribbing.
I doubt the 12-year-old will let me block it as she had cried out when I first made her try it on during the week, “But I won’t get to wear it!” There’s rain forecasted for most of next week so she should be able to make good use of this sweater then.
This is my main focus for today. What’s yours?
