Since this is the first pair Im using Hulk—-just wanted to do something easy in case I screw them up using super cheap comics. If they come out good, I will most likely make another pair. Not sure what other comic I would use, its been a while since Ive read any. 6 months ago
So I tried to make a jig, and it failed miserably. The styrofoam I used as the base was just too soft. I need long nails and a thing piece of balsam and someone who can nail straight to set them for me. 6 months ago

We live on a large hill and I cant actually believe that there isn’t a place flat enough for me outside to jump rope. The hill is at such an angle that the rope hits the sidewalk before it gets to me. Weird. 6 months ago
Swim: 25 min
I had a great swim. I stopped counting backstrokes and just concentrated on swimming and made it all the way across the park and half way back again. The inside of my elbows were burning by the time I was finished. But it also made freestyle harder.
3-4, 4-4, 5-4, 6-4, 7-4, 8-4, 3-4 (144 strokes total)
Spinning: 40 min 16.0 mph/ave 22.4 mph high 10 miles

Im thinking that I may not be spending enough time each day stretching my legs. One post I saw said to spend about ten minutes a day after a warm up, I think maybe I spend three or four. 7 months ago
Im a little more flexible than I used to be, but not by much. My chest is still very tight, and I am no closer to being able to do a split than I was before I started stretching every day. 7 months ago
Ive been stretching every day for more than a month and I am not any closer to a split than I was before I began. I know some people are just not flexible, and I think that I am one of them. 7 months ago
Bought a rope. So I should be able to start jumping this week. 7 months ago
We bought a kite today, but it most likely wont be until next weekend that we get a chance to fly it. 7 months ago
Always glad to help :-)

Im still tired.
After a killer cycling work out I walked for 4 hours around the city today. 7 months ago
You can totally sew. Knitting is much harder because planning a pattern is all in your head and is such a small, stitch by stitch scale. You have to plan your patterns very carefully. Sewing is a bit easier to me because you already start with something. The fabric is there, you just have to be able to manipulate it.
I do a lot of pattern shopping in my closet. I look at the clothing that I own, turn it inside out and figure out how it was made, then copy it. I do run into issues and things I need to fix, then I turn to youtube, which has been a savior.
The manual that comes with your machine will tell you how to use it; what stitches are for what, how to change bobbins and thread it, etc. And in that way it is also easier than knitting. Needles often don’t come with directions and knitting patterns are much harder to follow than sewing patterns are. Start with something small, like a purse and go from there.
But since you are into knitting, I would recommend learning to tat lace. You just need a shuttle and thread, so it’s cheap. The work is all knots, (one stitch of knots) so there is no dropping stitches. The patterns are often mostly repeats so very easy to memorize, and tatting is very portable. I tat on the train when I commute to pass the time.
Good luck to you, feel free to ask any questions, I’m always happy to share my craft. :-) 7 months ago

I was tired. and it was cold and very windy. the water was really rough, the bay had white caps. I didn’t do kicks tonight because I knew I was going to bike afterwards. I didn’t count back strokes because it screws up the coordination with my kicking, so I tried to time myself.
Freestyle: I’ve decided to try and do a pattern and once I can master the pattern, I will change it. 3-3s, 3-4s, 3-5s, 6, 7, 8, 9 (264 total) 7 months ago
I made a sequin skirt tonight. But Im not happy. It is really bulky, and with all the shininess it makes me feel really fat.
So I pulled the elastic out, cut the back up and the extra fabric out. I am going to put a zipper in it. Then maybe it will fit better. 7 months ago
Bought two new pairs of pants tonight. Now I need shirts. 7 months ago
