Like a politician’s stance on the issues, what you see might not be what you get. The front of this piece is turned to the back as I fiddle and flake its look around. I’ve ripped it once; I might rip it again!

The combination of the yarns is working for me and I like the cool contrast of color and crunchy texture. The bodice is evolving…

We have evidence of SPRING! all around the neighborhood and even though it makes my nose run, the excitement and longing for the warmth just builds and builds. I want to Go Sleeveless!

I was running around yesterday in my shirt sleeves and my pale little arms just couldn’t get enough air. Time to pull out the free weights and get some Remedial Tricep action though, the looooong winter made for some droooopy muscles.

I dreamt last night I suddenly had an extra room in my condo. Somehow, even though I live on the second floor, this room was on the first floor and had a wall of glass that opened onto a deck that faced wooded rolling hills. Boxes were cleared out (stage left of dreamworld god only knows where they went) and I put in my weight bench and a step-machine! WHAT is my subconscious trying to tell me??!!! Here I was, in the middle of the night doing Tricep Flies. AH! If only it could happen while I sleep. I always loved those Behavioural Mod Tapes you could strap on and play during the night to quit smoking or learn a lanquage…

This is such pitiful wishful thinking but really, if you ponder yesterday’s entry on PIZZA, it comes as no surprise. Many of us in the wake of an extended winter have what I fondly refer to as “the Pudge” a little poof of a belly, unwanted, unloved, mocked by me when I first noticed it on age 10 on my Aunt P. Now it mocks me back but I don’t have that lovely workout room. I’ll have to carry on in the living room on a mat [in front of the TV snark isn’t there a show called Men in Trees?]. Wish me luck~!

Ooh La La, speaking of luck, over on the Sexy Knitters Club, the Aleita Shell is being voted on as one of their nominations for their next KAL. THANKS SO MUCH, ladies, that means a lot and I appreciate it :)

    I’ve been doing workout vids all winter, with increasing frequency in January, but recently going outside to *walk*. I don’t know what happened to my feet & ankles! Holey smokes, the walking muscles I discovered.

    I think you have so hit on something. The workout room sounds lovely, but it would make fabulous yarn storage it you could just figure out that sticky “exercise while you sleep” problem.

    Though it seems ironic that restless leg syndrome is sorta like working out while you sleep, and yet they recommend medication for that. Hmmmmm…..

    Oh, I really like how your fetching creation is evolving! And ain’t dreams something else? Here’s hoping yours come true.

    I have that “room I never knew about” dream all the time. I read someplace that it’s a common dream motif, and it means that there is a part of you that you are submerging, or hiding even from yourself. The extra room is supposed to represent something about yourself that you have yet to discover!

    (I can never figure out what I’m supposed to be discovering–I just wake up slightly bummed that my house doesn’t really have all that extra space!)

    Of course, that analysis could all be a load of crap anyway!

    I’m so grateful that spring is really getting here. The treadmill is just no substitute to running outside for endurance running.
