This has become a long week. Too long it feels like and it's not even Friday yet. Got my major exercises (treadmills, stationary bikes,etc) done yesterday and Monday and a few other things. Right now I'm going to incorporate the Biggest Loser DVDs that I have (Cardio Max and Power Sculpt) starting Sunday. But I'm going to do those when I'm not doing the treadmills and stationary bikes. So that will be the weekends and Tuesdays and Thursdays.
I'm making water bottle carriers. I'm doing a knitted version and crocheted version. I haven't made the patterns for the crocheted version yet because I haven't decided on the stitch yet. I'm making them for 3 different liter size bottles since not all liter bottles are created the same even though the hold the same amount of water. I'll have photos up when I get them done. I'm working on one now that I've been trying to finish the body of but I had to rip it out. I had a dropped stitch and it was hard to get to to where it was at. I'm thinking of making them in smaller sizes for smaller bottles but I have to get the water bottles that dad has in the fridge to measure those and make patterns for those in a knitted and crocheted version. The reason why I'm making the patterns is because I don't have a place to put the water bottles when I'm doing the stationary bike except putting them on the floor. I thought that I should make a water bottle carrier that I can sling over one shoulder and carry it that way when I'm on it. That and the rowing machine and elliptical. I saw another person who had a water bottle carrier but hers was made out of fabric where mine is made out of yarn. If anyone knits or crochets and wants the pattern, let me know and I'll send you the patterns. But give me time to figure out the crocheted pattern since I haven't figured out the stitch that I wanted to do yet.
Well, my dad will be getting his right knee replaced. He'll be getting it replaced on October 15,2010. The doctor said that they need to replace it instead of cleaning it out because there is way too much arthritis in the knee to clean out so they have to replace the knee. He found out this past Monday. Sometime next month we have to go to a class that will explain what they're going to do with the knee from start to finish.
