Crochet Today Cover

There are still a few weeks before this issue will hit the newsstands, but I was excited to discover at TNNA that my recent vest design for TNNA will be featured on the March/April cover of Crochet Today magazine.

Before I left for TNNA, I had undertaken an entire week of taking a yoga class every day–the local studio hosts a free week after New Year’s each year, and this year was the first time I had taken advantage of it. (I’ve done lots of yoga in the past, but none since Jay was born–he’s now three). It was a great way to start off the year, and I felt awesome, and maybe even a little taller.

Of course, right at the end of the week, I got a bad cold, then I left for TNNA. Walking the show floor is very hard on a body–hard concrete, carrying bags, not much sitting or stretching, and being “on” all day. I try to mitigate this by wearing good shoes , but I end up being stiff and sore by the end of the week. I took a red-eye home, which didn’t help matters much, then napped for a good part of yesterday to catch up on sleep.

Today, I’m back on track, catching up, and I went to yoga class where the teacher spent a good deal of time on poses to work the very joints I had stressed. Yeah! I left class feeling much better.

I only have about an hour and a half before the work day is over and the kids come home, so I’m going to try and get one pattern written out, and start making lists about impending work. It looks like it’s going to be a busy spring!
