David and I went to a boxercise class at the gym last night. I used to love boxercise classes (a long long time ago when I was much fitter!) so we were really looking forward to the evening. We weren’t disappointed! I was pretty nervous having D as my partner – he’s a little clumsy sometimes and I could just see him missing my glove and smashing in my nose. He came close a few times I have to say. He throws a mean punch and when he used force you could feel it. Ouch! But other than the close calls, it was great throwing punches. We didn’t do any hooks, just uppercuts and straight punches. Also sit ups which I hate and haven’t done in years.
I’m aiming to finish a knitting project every month since I have altogether way too many WIPs that I want to have finished tout de suite! This month I dug out my Aeolian shawl (here is the original pattern) which has been sadly neglected, 15 rows from finishing, since last summer. The thing with this kind of shawl is it starts at the top edge in the middle, with each row growing progressively longer. Here’s a great diagram I found with a photo tutorial to illustrate what I mean.
Each row increases in length and by the time you get to the edge, there are a heck of alot of stitches to knit. I just got a bit fed up working through the stitches…. but strangely enough once I picked it up again the rows weren’t too bad. I now have 8 rows left… so well on my way to my January FO.
