Ok, so I had my first session with a personal trainer tonight. My muscles didn't know exactly what they were supposed to be doing - think they were saying "you want me to do what?". Anyway, coming from a long time couch potato, my mind as decided it is time to get back in shape (or at least better shape than I am currently in) so I joined a fitness club and hired a personal trainer. Tonight was to test to see where I am physically at this point - then they gave me a routine to work on my own during the week. The goal is - you will be seeing less of me in the future.

gate and ladder finished

Erik and Christine had to help me block my Gate and Ladder shawl. Knit in Frog Tree sport weight alpaca, it will be very warm and with the cool days we have had lately, it will be a welcome addition.

caught them playing the other night - think they like eachother? One grooms the other, then the favor is returned, then they argue about who gets to groom whom...

On the knitting front, trying to finish my circular teal alpaca shawl - less than 10 rows to go...

Spent all night Saturday, Sunday and most of today trying to finish a sport weight alpaca shawl from Knitted Lace Shawls called Gate and Ladder. It is a real easy pattern and has a 2 row repeat for the entire thing - I needed a no-brainer this weekend. I have about 12 rows left before I can cast off (Yeah)
