Spinning, a misleading title

I am all caught up on reading all of my blogs! I have 112 feeds that I read, and I love to click on people's blog rolls, which leads to more hook-ups... *sigh* But I caught up! I am knitting away on the second sock for my second child (smile), and I think it's coming along pretty cute. Small socks really make me melt.

This morning, sat down with the sock to work on the heel, and turned on the t.v. For some reason, on the food channel, there was a program titled Spinning. Yay! I clicked it, and some woman was riding a bike. .... Oh, yeah. I guess they did steal the title from an ancient, noble past-time. I kind of remember that from before my spinning days - you know, proper spinning, where you don't sit on, but next to, your wheel. (Well, I don't actually own a wheel, but I know people who do) =) Anyway, I felt a little like someone had held out a birthday cake, then explained that it was cardboard. Ah, well.

Take a kid to the dentist today. I was very bad this morning, and bought a pattern online from ChicKnits, called CeCe. I'm bad because I was going to knit myself a sweater for spring, and I can only see this for my good friend M. But how to sneakily find out her inches-through-the-bust measurement, without looking totally weird and too friendly? It can't be done. I may have to fess up, or talk to her husband. Oh - oh! I could borrow a shirt, or find out her shirt size. I love typing as I think, don't you?

I'm guilty of the "click through" myself when I'm bored and on a blog journey.. which is probably how my blogroll is up to such scary proportions.

I always seem to be trying to catch up!

I really like that pattern (CeCe). I've been thinking about making it - I'll be interested to see how yours goes.

I'd be disappointed with exercise spinning too! Pshaw!

Jeanne said...

I'm also thinking about making Cece - just need to find the right yarn! Have you picked out a yarn yet?

I love the sneakiness for the stealth present! Borrowing a shirt sounds good, just make sure you know how it fits on her. Snug? Huge? Like that.

I'm masses behind on blogs but I'll catch up after tax season is over.

Your "kitty cat" is adorable!

And I was LOL'ing at the different personas you try on during the day.

I know, I'm catching up right now. Sometimes I get all stressed out when I see all the bold updates, lol.
