I saw this Patriotic Hot Air Balloon on Tuesday evening. I still won’t go up in those things. But here, like where you are I’m sure, the red the white and the blue are coming out in force. We’ve have been outside for therapeutic riding this week. There is a different feel to riding outside. You get a sense of how big the draft horses are if you look at the white back end of one horse, and how small the leader is in comparison. Time outside seems doubly good for the students.
As one who absolutely detests working out, I think I’ve found my motivation. I had to keep a rider up on her horse the other night. My upper body is a weakling of the highest order. It was perhaps the hardest workout I’ve had in years.
So, I found the 2 lb weights in the basement and have begun a very gentle regime of curls. It is funny where motivation comes from , isn’t it?
It is so humid here that my shawl is still blocking after a good vinegar soak the other night. So, no pictures today but perhaps tomorrow.
In the meantime, I’ve cast on a lovely shawl from a new book: Interweave’s Classic Knit Shawls. I spent good part of my night casting on the 363 stitches to begin. I chose the Lindsay Shawl by Tabetha Hedrick.
Cable cast on is THE way to go when you have so many stitches that need to be cast on at once.
Are you relishing the TIME OUT side this summer? I really am. It was a long winter!
