Almost Done!

One sleeve to go! I digressed from the pattern and did the sleeves in the round. As always, if I make this again, I'll do it in the round. I always say that and I always forget when I start a new sweater/shirt!After this is finished, I have the Houdini socks to finish. Just one leg left to go on those.

Still exercising daily with Wii Fit. However, some of the statistics on it baffle me. It gives you a Wii Fit age based on some statistics they gather. My age has gone as high as 71 and as low as 29. I don't like that one is supposed to do the weigh in every day. It's very discouraging to loose weight and then gain it and more back. I know from past experiences with trying to loose weight that one shouldn't weigh in daily....

Many of the exercises deal with balance as well as movement. That's hard for me, but improving. Some deal with rhythm, like the dance moves in the aerobics. I have no rhythm at all. Can't hear it unless it's a pounding drum and then still can't follow it. So my scores are minimal in these areas. I'm still sweating, have elevated heart rate, and still getting new sore muscles, so I know it's working, but....again kinda discouraging. In just the six days I've had it, I feel much better. My joints are looser, I can quickly walk up the steps now instead of dragging myself by the hand rail!

Keeping the "We" in "Yes, We Can!"

Knitting accessories made in Finland from recycled materials. Shipping isn't too bad....


  1. That little blue sweater is looking great!
    Keep on with your WII Fit routine - it sounds like fun.
    Oh I so know what you mean by dragging yourself up the stairs. For me the worst part is going downstairs - my hip bones and one knee do not like that at all!

  2. So glad you're getting fit! That's so important. Don't worry about all the other nonsense on the program that bothers you. The main thing is to feel good and be healthy. :)

  3. Love the sweater. I don't like to sew seams, I'm not good at it, so I'm always looking for things to do in the round and seamless.


I really am glad you're commenting. Please make sure I can find you by insuring you leave an e-mail address. It's so frustrating to have someone ask a question and no way to answer them! Thanks!
