Mail...Mesh...Movies...

In the mail I found this wonderful package from Chan yesterday! Six yoga dvd's, yoga bible, some yummy choc/mint yarn....Love, love, love it Chan....thank you sooooo much. I did do 40 minutes of it, was quite proud of myself until later when I started "feeling the yoga" so got a nice, hot bath to relax the muscles. Boy you should see some of the positions these people get into in this book...they must not have any bones in their bodies! I did go to Target today and got a yoga mat (pink with hot pink lace hearts) so I don't slip on the carpet and can get a good grip!

Made this the night before while waiting for Jimmy at swimming. It's crocheted and called a mesh cloth. I just love the color. Its Bernat Handicrafter cotton, which I tried to get more at JoAnn's but they don't have anymore...weird!
Jimmy and I went and saw Hotel for Dogs today......soooooooooooooooooooo good! It's definitely a buyer when it comes out on dvd! Jimmy giggled at me in the movies because of course I started crying at a certain point in it....very, very happy ending though. If you love dogs you have to see it, you'll love it! Plus Pedigree donates a portion of the ticket sales to shelters! Good cause, good movie! Then went to McD's to get a Happy Meal because they had the movie toys!
On the needles: Dream in Color Shrug...Peppermint Patty sock two...Valentine cloth and thinking about casting on for some yoga socks. Gotta get something back on the hook too and will probably start the blanket I'm wanting to make for the couch.
Have a great weekend...and KNIT!:)

I think Yoga must be tougher that it appears, as I've never done it, but I am playing 6 games of volleyball tonight, so that's good right?
I love the dishcloth! And I love crocheting at times too! Such fast results compared to my knitting speed. That cloth is a lovely color

That Yarn is super yummy. I like it.
Lol Yoga is fun.. but I just do it on the Wii Fit so it's like Psuedo Yoga I guess. LOL
Anyway,... from your question on my grey swirl hat To do it smaller I did 14 to the left and right of the middle marker on the Brim (the measurements and stitches work out still at that number) And my button I used was rings that say words on them and I just ended up sewing them right onto the belt I knew I wasn't going to take off the belt anyway so I just sewed it all on. I thought it looked better and I didn't have to deal with pushing the buttons through the holes. It worked out well.
I finished my red one yesterday, and a brown one this morning all my friends wanted one.
People LOVE this hat. LOL

Good for you for keeping up with the Yoga. Pretty soon you'll be all bendy too.
