The Week March 27-April 2, 2017

Last week’s goals with progress indicated:

      • Knit 3 or more wedges of Aranami.
        Not done – I got caught up in cables and finishing the Aspen sleeves, so I only managed 1 last night.
      • Start sleeve cap shaping on Aspen sleeves.
        Done. Started and finished – the sleeves are done. See?

I finished the sleeves for my Aspen cardi (by @mishi2x) this weekend. On to calculating to make it shorter, balling more yarn, and starting the fronts. This cat-free picture brought to you by blue bouncy ball, the great distractor.

    • Go to TKD twice.
      Done – I went thrice.
    • Add more pictures to Society 6 and let my FB people know.
      Done. Maybe I should replace the blog link in Instagram with a link to S6? And since I’m on the subject, maybe replace etsy shop link in @madgeface twitter account with link to this.

I also started an exercise challenge, egged on by my old roller derby buddies and an article in Runner’s World: 30 burpees (full burpees, with pushups) for 15 days. Today will be day 7 since we started last Tuesday. I pulled or strained something in my shoulder so it aches at rest and hurts when I turn my neck. I’m not sure if I’m going to keep going or not – is the pain just my body getting used to doing pushups again or did I really pull something? (Can you tell I’m putting off today’s 30 burpees by writing about them instead?)

Next week:

    • Knit 1 or more wedge of Aranami.
    • Do the math to figure out the stitch count for the fronts & back of Aspen since I’m doing a shorter version. I have the vague idea that the cabling should start around where the belt loops (which I’m not doing according to pattern) go.
    • Go to TKD twice.
    • Add more pictures to Society 6 and let my FB people know.
    • Decide yes/no on NaPoWriMo and yes/no on 100 day project (likely writing) since April is Saturday, the start day for both.
    • Come up with a good (not completely awful and humiliating) April Fool’s joke to play on Ky & the boys. Or, alternately, rise above it/go into full denial and just call it April 1.
    • Start a cat cave for Jeff (and later, one for Eevee) since he likes his improvised one so much:

    Funny, for my second week list, I was going to add “start daily push ups again” and explain that I had to quit due to a shoulder injury. Still will add that, but thought it was funny that I haven’t even gotten a chance to make a list and here’s your list with similar goal and reason for not having done so previously.

    1. That is funny! Great minds think alike! I need to catch up with your blog (and everyone else’s); my apologies for not being more present – I should’ve added that to my list also!

    Haha! Love the improvised cat cave. Did you knit the blanket???

    1. No, my Mom made it for me. Isn’t it beautiful? She improvised the whole thing and surprised me with it 2 years ago when I wasn’t feeling well. Everyone at my house loves it!

        Heavens, yes!! Perfection in a blanket. Now I see where you get your knitting chops! 😉

  3. Those cables, though! Oh my! And, I love your cat–I must admire such felines from a distance, given some allergies . . . but I love them nonetheless 🙂

    1. I couldn’t resist those cables – I had to finish the sleeves! I’m sorry you’re allergic to cats – I wish you many awesome cat videos, gifs, & memes!
