  • Good luck with Print O’ The Wave. And I have one of those Pilate balls, and an Ab Lounger & let me tell ya, the kids are having BLAST playin with that thing & my cat loves the lounger – he’s got the trimmest tummy you’d ever want to see, so they DO work!

  • Pilates. Yeah, that belly deep thing. The abnormally flexible teacher called it something else; I think it was contracting the core muscle or something. I was totally unable to figure it out. And I used to be a ballet dancer…let’s knit instead!

  • okay, enough with the southern book appearances. when, oh, when will you be in new england? or did i already miss it?

  • I’d always heard them called “Memphodites”

  • As a regular reader, and Pilates Instructor, I say take heart. And reward yourself with silk yarn!
    Usually around the 3rd session it starts making sense. I ask everyone to try atleast 3 times. Kind of like Kitchner.

  • Pilates with a Rocket?! I think I would have to swear a lot during that workout just so I could feel all tough and such like.
    Hope you have a great time at the book festival.
    Good luck with the Print ‘O the Wave stole.

  • FYI, It’s actually Memphian.

  • As long as Elaine is making a shout out on behalf of your New England following, I would like to put in a call for a visit to the west coast. Surely Kay needs to make another visit to the fainting goats!!
    Plus, in California, our knitting is often accompanied by wine!
    I think the karma got me for pointing out your 10 extra rows: yesterday I had to rip out half of a scarf…granted it is just a scarf but really, I had to do all that unknitting.

  • Oh, Ann, I know the pain of which you speak. I just got home from my pilates session. My butt is so sore it didn’t want to sit in the car. My abs, which have never been tested in their whole 50+ years are screaming at my 24/7. Check out the equipment I use and see if it looks similar to yours.
    By the way, the tight abs you see in the upper left hand corner of my entry are not mine… as if there was ever a doubt!

  • Glad to know I’m not the only one with mulch flurf isues! The trials of being a mom knitter!

  • I think any exercise that requires absurd-looking equipment is just unnatural. Still, I bet it feels awesome to do! That nice sore worked-out sort of feeling. Always good.
    And good luck with that knitting!

  • Dear Kay,
    I blogged about the New York Knit-Out now… it’s about half-way through this post:

  • From one Dries van Noten lover to another – I like your blog – please ave a look at mine!

  • OMG. Just looking at the cartoon!!!!!! I’ve got see a real person on that!!!! Weee!!! Zoing!!! There they go flying out of the room!! AAhh!! I’m still laughing!!! Thank you.

  • Aw shucks, Ann. 🙂

  • Thank you for the visual on Pilates! I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time – I’m so happy that someone else has an appreciation for exercise machines like me!

  • Chicago? Soon? Please?

  • TOO FUNNY! I have not tried Pilates yet (well I did eons ago in college) but I did try yoga and let me tell you I spent the entire class time trying not to pass gas—I know, I know, but seriously, between the positions and everything else…it was hard!!! Good luck with the stole, and the Pilates. I am making baby socks with size 0 needles—YIKES!

  • Are you the one in the middle?

  • Welcome to Memphis! I am a member of the Memphis Knitting Guild, and we hosted Stephanie Pearl-McPhee’s visit back in April. I do hope you can bring some of your tiny mitered stitch markers for us! We’ll be attending the Southern Festival of Books, and look forward to having lunch with you.

  • I don’t know about you, but I get the heebie jeebies now when anyome mentions “the 100s” Pilates or not!
