My Latest Knitting Projects

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

I have been knitting a lot more than usual, since my knee bursitis has prevented me from much biking... my other hobby. The good news is, I've finished a lot of projects. The bad news is, it's much harder to lose weight with the cycling component gone.
Here are a few of the projects which I've finished this Fall... so far at least.
The biggest project was this cardigan:
Then I knit 3 winter hats. Here is one of them:
Some socks:
And two new sweaters for eagerly waiting friends:

Busy, busy, busy, but I would still rather be biking.

    Very pretty Carolyn!
Sorry to hear about your knee bursitis is acting up. That is not good to hear you have to not bike. I have bad knees and I was hoping biking would be better for them, than walking so much. Now I am not sure. emoticon Haven't bought a bike yet, but have an indoor one and I must admit sometimes my knees feel pained after going for 10 min.. That is why I bought the indoor bike, so I could toughen up for the outdoor biking.
Hope your knee gets better soon. With winter coming on, probably won't be biking much anyway...Have you ever tried chair exercises? I love them...a few here on SP and lots on You tube! Sure helps me! Take care... emoticon
P.S. Thanks for the get well wishes concerning my eye. Doing good so far after the laser surgery. emoticon

What a great talent you have. Your work is magnificent! I hope you can get back on the bike soon. I know how hard it is to achieve and maintain a health weight without exercise.

Unfortunately. old man winter is here and opportunities for biking are few. Your projects will keep you nice and toasty.
