Knit with Fitness Episode 1

I love crafting but I know that crafting makes me gain weight. I tend to sit hours and hours without moving and it feels so good to do that, comfy knitting in a comfy couch, why not, right? The problem is that I have a high cholesterol issue and I choose not to take any medication (avoiding all the side effects). Hence I have to control what I eat and try to exercise regularly. I was good at exercising until I started crafting obsessively. Oh,I don’t want to only blame the craft that causes my sedentary life style. It’s all on me too, my lack of time management and pure laziness …lol

So I thought, why don’t I just cooperate my exercise routine with my beloved craft? I did it! I tried Pilates and it worked. Although i might not burn a whole lot of calories working out on a yoga mat or get a number of rows of knitting/crocheting done, I think it’s better than nothing, isn’t it?

Here it is, a short video clip I made of my “Knit with Fitness” Episode 1 (meaning there might be more in the future..lol) I hope to try more different exercise reps that I can cooperate with knitting, crocheting, and drop spindling (that might be tricky!) and I will make sure to share them here as well with you in the future 🙂

In the meantime, happy Crafting!

My 2nd Fair Isle Hat :)

This Crofthoose hat is the 2nd fair isle hat I have knitted from the 2016 Shetland WoolWeek pattern. The hat is designed by the lovely shetlander knitter Ella Gordon. What I like about this pattern is that it’s easy to follow and you can choose five colour pallets to play with. So if you are a colour maniac/enthusiast like me, you would enjoy knitting one 🙂

Click on the video above to see what colour choice I chose from Blacker Yarn and  Jamieson and Smith 2ply/fingering weight.

This project took me about three weeks to finish but I am a slow knitter so don’t take it as a standard knitting time…lol

Hiya,

For those who didn’t get a chance to visit the festival which was a-m-a-z-i-n-g by the way, here is a mini film I made during my break from volunteering and a short clip of the Ceilidh Night 🙂

See you again next year!

Podcast Recording Failed, Never Mind

Ok, after hours of talking to (myself) the camera, I decided I didn’t like the way I sounded !

So I came up with a way I could show off my first knitted hat within seconds and without having to say a thing to bore you..ha..ha..

In the future, if you like to see what I have created, made, tried, and failed, you can also subscribe to my channel  here

See you on the flip side 🙂
