i spin

and I'm not talking about yarn. I have joined the craze of those crazy fitness people that spin. Used to be just regular indoor cycling but now is spinning. For those of you that have taken these insane and intense classes you all can appreciate the fact that I cannot walk up my steps tonight. I've been taking the class for a couple weeks now but I went 4 times this week, two nights back to back. Probably not the smartest thing I have done but this spinning thing is very addictive, all those endorphins I guess.

I have finished the front and back of my cable sweater that was stuffed away months ago. I hope to have the sleeves finished this weekend. Things are crazy busy at work and it finally looks like winter has arrived in Maryland. Maybe we will see some of the snow that I have been so jealous of in other blogs.

the fever is gone

This picture says it all! So sad to report that my local football team, the Ravens, lost to the Colts. For those of you that don't know this is a bitter loss since the Colts abandoned Baltimore many years ago in the middle of the night. To lose to this team is very depressing. I was hoping they would win since the superbowl is on my birthday this year (by the way I will be 29 again and I'm not telling how many times I have been 29!) . For those of you with teams still in the playoffs good luck.

blog question

Someone asked where I got the pattern for the rectangle shawl. I ordered it through Jimmy Beans Wool online shop, the pattern is from Blue Sky Alpaca. I wore it last night and it is beautiful I'm ready to make another. I'll try to get a photo posted later today.

I seem to have lost by sidebar when I tried to merge to the new blogger. Any idea how to fix this problem?
