Projects & Projections...

Well, on my walking goal you'll notice I've logged 15 miles so far and if my figures are correct I have less than a mile a day to meet my goal by April 1...but if we have anymore days like today I think I'll use those days for "skip day"....and make it up later! I started out on a walk after leaving the library I had to shorten it to a mile because the wind gusting not only made it hard to walk but gave me a spitting sinus headache! OUCH! I do believe that I'm going to continue on with my ticker to see just how far I can walk in a years time...this has really kept me going. I need to drop about 45 lbs...maybe, just maybe I can do it!

On the knitting & spinning front:

I just finished up spinning some Black Alpaca & Black Norwegian (I blended as I was spinning) and I'm getting ready to spin that wonderful North Ronaldsay that by SP8 Buddy sent to me from WoolFest last June!
So you ask...what am I going to do with the black? Remember Dolphin Dance? Those 2 combined are going to be my first Steeking project! And yes...that is the pattern I using. It's not often you see me knit something that's the same colors represented on a pattern...remember--I'm a "non-conformist"!

Well...I've gotta go tend to this headache!

Keep on Knittin', Spinnin' & Walkin'!!!!!!

I can't wait to see how this turns out. The pattern is gorgeous and the dolphin dance is perfect for it. I'm dying to do some fair isle but can't find a project that I'm excited about. I'm hoping that you'll inspire me :)

That pattern is my favorite vest on my "to do" list. Once again, great minds.

I'm with you on the walking/weight loss front. We MAY just have to meet this year!

I got the ticker to go on one entry, but can't manage to get it to stay at the top of the screen like yours. I think it's a typepad issue.
