(My commentary is rated PG this morning for the use of the word "*ss." Just thought I'd warn you. ::wink::)
You know what this is?
It's a box of clothes that I've gotten from eBay off & on over the past year. Mostly jeans - about 15 pair of jeans I think - and other bottoms. I didn't buy them specifically, they came as part of a "lot" of clothes. I was really going for the tops or dresses that were included, the pants were extra.
All those pants should fit. You want to know why they don't?
'Cause I have a fat *ss.
You know why my *ss is so fat?
'Cause I have a lazy *ss too that doesn't want to exercise.
I could have a closet full of cute clothes if only I could drag my.....wait for it.....sorry *ss over to the exercise bike & get back into the swing of things.
I have high hopes that spring break will give me the time & motivation I need to start my exercise regime in earnest once again. In the meantime, in order to get the exercise ball rolling, I helped Doug finish shoveling the gravel in the front yard at the rental. My butt may be big, but my arms are sure getting toned! I'll get a pic of the finished project today. :)
In crocheting news, I reread the crochet cardi directions for, like, the 10th time & this time I really have it going correctly:
I've joined the back & fronts & am working my way down. :) Please ignore what I said before about the pattern obtuseness. There IS a real mistake, but it comes later - what I did at first was totally a user goof. I was trying to fix what I thought was a mistake on row 4 when in actuality I should've ripped back to row 2 to fix my own mistake. ::Grin:::
The real mistake is in the section where it tells you how the pattern rows go for the straight sections, working in the round and the taper. I'll list the correction when I do my end notes for this cardi - which should be in a couple of days 'cause this is a FAST crochet!
I'm using the Lily Elite Cotton that I've had for awhile. I tried two other projects with this and both failed. I was hoping the 3rd time would be the charm and it looks like it will be. :)
I totally forgot I bought a subscription to this until it arrived in my mailbox yesterday:
I liked a couple of patterns, which I'll talk about later, but I really have to say that my biggest beef with Knit N Style is their habit of putting really awful items on their front cover. There are usually bright stripes & some sort of fun fur involved. Yuck! You're supposed to entice the reader into opening the magazine, not turn them off from even picking it up!
Yes, I'm still working on kitchen stuff. Right now I'm pattern testing for a friend. :)
Next up: Reviews of Lace Style and the June "Knit 'N Style."
Then the unveiling of Lacy Top Cardi.
Can this blog get any more thrilling???? hehehehe
