Random Tuesday.

 Nothing to see here...
Clearance Felici striped yarn from Knitpicks.

 *cough*cough*cough*
I, like, needed the darning egg though. 

That big 'for me' Black Friday purchase?
 
(Not my house.)

An official Ass Kicking Machine aka rower. 

I loves me some exercise machines, man! ESPECIALLY ones that fold up, like this one, AND it was on lightening deal for cheap-cheap. He joins the line up along with my skier, treadmill and Pilates reformer. (Though I'm mostly off that last one so I think it's on it's way out.) I always loved the rowing machines the most a long, long time ago when I had a gym membership. (A long, looooooooong time ago.) Not sure why but I did. It's kinda fun and it kinda kicks your ass without you realizing it. lol You use it and get a little out of breath but feel fine otherwise.........until you try to stand up and realize you don't have LEGS THAT WORK ANYMORE. Haha! It sneaks up and POW! You're dead. Maximum work out for minimum amount of time = appeals to my ultra-lazy self. I'll take that over walking on the treadmill for an hour. :)

 I was seriously behind on blog reading but have been trying to catch up the last couple days. I'm tackling it in blocks of ten posts at a time. lol

I love the yarn colors you chose. I bet you make something wonderful with it all. I am behind in my reading as well. It will be OK.

Love the yarn! As for your rower -- you have quite the lineup of machines! I've been wishing for an elliptical, but we have neither the money nor the space for one. I need to get back to exercising. Groan

Great new yarn colors.

So you are collecting exercise machines, huh? You could probably hang stitched ornaments from them if the actual exercise doesn't work out. But good luck with sticking to a new regimen!

Catherine said...

Oh, I wish I could get back on track with exercising!! Love the yarns!

Carol said...

Oooh--pretty colors! And congratulations on your rowing machine purchase! My boss, the 81 year old wonder woman (YES--really!!) has used a rower for years and puts us all to shame with her energy and spirit. Maybe I should add one to supplement my daily treadmill workout?

You are definitely one of the best blog commenters around, Melanie, and I truly appreciate it :)

I really like the yarn you picked :) I happen to have my hubby's grandma's darning egg. But I do need to order one of those de-fuzzing things from KP ;)

Love the yarn!! Nice deal on the rower, too. I need to get back to exercising. I feel like the winter is just settling in but I know that soon enough the warmer weather will follow and my blubber won't be so easily hidden under sweaters. LOL

Ooooo nice woolly, who could resist that!
