So what have I done about it?
In the past week I have joined three things - woo hoo!
My second piece of "joining in" is Stephen West's Choreo-Kal.
I have always harboured an urge to dance. Sadly, I have done nothing about it. A few desultory home-exercise dvd sessions in front of the TV three times a year will not transform me into Darcey Bussell or Beyonce.
A gimmick, you say? Yes, of course it is! But it is an inspired gimmick which might actually get me moving again. And if not, I am still going to knit 4 Stephen West patterns: a slouchy hat, sassy legwarmers (oh yeah!), a chunky funky scarf and a colourwork shawl.
It all kicks off on 16 November with the colourwork shawl. I am supposed to select my colours from a photograph of my environment. I will aim to avoid mud brown and slime green.
And finally... drum-roll please! I have booked myself in to a gathering of knitters in January. Actual human interaction, on the theme of knitting! Woot! I have lurked around Natalie The Yarn Yard's virtual garden shed on Ravelry for years. I have met up with a few other members here and there, but this will be my first trip to Shedfest. Shedfest!!!
FL is bemused, not least by the news that I will be spending the night in a convent.
Yay - look at me! I am a joiner-inner! ; )
