Casting On and a Small Harvest
I was a little bored with the plain stockinette socks I have on the needles, so I decided that a new shawl was in order. So I finally cast on for a Multnomah, I've been wanting to knit one for ages but could never decide on yarn, don't you hate that? I'm really loving it so far, it's mindless and perfect for those spare moments that I get to knit for a bit and watch tv. Also, I'm throwing some stripes in because it seemed like a good idea. Stripes are always a good idea though, right?
In parking lot garden news, my yellow cherry tomatoes have been ripening! I've harvested 8 so far and there are a few more on the edge of readiness!
In fitness news, I've been working hard on my strength goal that I wrote about earlier. I've been keeping up with the 30 Day Shred and can already feel a difference, I'm able to do about 15 modified push ups in a row, compared with the 3 I could do when I started! Yesterday I threw some yoga into the mix which was a real challenge in the hot living room, but it made my back feel amazing so it was worth it. Today will be the 5th day of the 30 Day Shred (I'm only counting days that I do the workout, I took one day off to let my muscles recover) - I wonder how long I'll have to do it before I can move on to level 2, level 1 is still mega butt kicking challenging!
