~ but nothing's at a photo-worthy stage, so I haven't blogged. I'm dying to get a shot of the kitties in their new bed; maybe tonight, but I suspect it gets its highest usage when they are alone all day. Perhaps I should schedule a stealth visit at lunchtime, but I have newly committed that time on MWF to Power Lunch Hour at the JCC. Trainer Tina is kicking my ass, and it's about time! Other than an occasional weekend power walk, I hadn't figured out how to fit regular exercise back into my schedule since I went back to work two years ago. I haven't gained weight, but I've definitely lost cardio capacity and some muscle tone. But now that my office has relocated to within three miles of the JCC (on the same street!), and the place is familiar since Wee C goes there daily, I'm set to make the additional three trips per week.
In knitting news, I passed the halfway point on Klaralund with one of each piece knitted, and have begun the second sleeve. I've found it such a pleasant knit! Even though the design might lend itself to machine knitting, I'm betting the Silk Garden doesn't, with its loose and varying ply. In that vein, I am also a bit reluctant to try it with the Cotton Twist I mentioned in the previous post, because that is some splitty stuff, but we'll see.
Anyone remember the baby hat I started a while back? Despite some protestations from mothers of boys, I finished the mildly lacy item and decided it needed a scarf to accompany it (particularly since I still had some yarn to use up). So I consulted my Knitting Stitch Bible and chose a simple chevron that seems to go with the hat. Blocked, it probably won't be quite three inches wide, but this guy was only born in June. I'd welcome suggestions for how long it should be, though. Not that I have any idea if one adorns an infant with a scarf, anyway ~ choking hazard?
Luckily, the previously mentioned mother, commenter par excellence MaryB (whom I met on Rachael's blog map!), will have the chance to remark in person when we travel together to the Fall Fiber Festival of Virginia ~ but I may have finished the wee accessory by then!
