Lady in Red

I have been giving a try at kick boxing to get myself motivated to exercise again.

I have a very generous friend at work who is a kick boxing instructor and decided to give us a class once a week for free.

Yes, it is hard work and it is kicking my behind I have to say... I'm also not the most coordinated person when it comes to exercise classes. But I have not let that stop me and I have now been doing it for 3 weeks... And I love it! I will refrain from showing you any pictures or videos as I'm sure it would win one of the Funniest Videos shows on tv...

Because she is so nice and generous I decided I would make her a cowl to keep her warm when the weather start getting cold.

Her favorite color is red and I think this one will look just perfect on her...

Just wanted to show you a picture as I just gave it to her today.

I just bought the yarn ... its Clutch. It's hand dyed here in Mt. hood, Or and the pattern is from a crochet magazine. I'll have to give you the details later as I don't have the magazine with me.

Hope you are having a fun week and enjoying whatever may be that you are doing this summer ...well, it might not even be summer for you... But I hope you are enjoying every day...

As always thanks for stopping by and I so appreciate all of your comments and messages.
Have a lovely day.

  1. Wow, that is gorgeous, Taci! I bet your friend is thrilled! How nice of her to give that free class, I'm glad it's working for you. Hope to see you again, soon. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  2. Kickboxing!!!! Could you just see me kickboxing?! Nope. Never in this world. But you Taci. I can see you in his class looking beautiful and elegant while kickboxing away!!! :-)
    That is a gorgeous cowl and your friend is very lucky to have it made for her by you.

  3. Oh Taci, that cowl is beautiful. I love the color!!!!

  4. It's beautiful, I'm sure your friend will love it. :)

  5. Mmmmm exercise Taci - well done. I need to do something. Would like swimming but not a nice pool nearby. The cowl is lovely and I just love the colour. I have still not decided what to make with the lovely yarn I had from you. Am not rushing into it though. I know that the perfect project will come along. Happy Summer Days to you as well. Anne x

  6. Lovely colour, red's my favourite.

  7. Beautiful ! The buttons are perfect !

  8. Teresa and Betsy took my opening lines :) I am impressed with you choice of exercise and the fabulous cowl you made for your friend!!! You are a treasure to know, Taci, and I too hope to visit with you soon!

  9. It's really beautiful. Gorgeous shade of red and the buttons are perfect. x

  10. Gorgeous scarf Taci. I am so proud of you with the kick boxing, I am also not very coordinated, I would probably fall right on my behind. I need to jump start some exercising, a busy and hot summer have thrown me off course.

  11. Incredibly pretty Taci. What a kind gift to give back to someone who is givingto you...even if it comes in the form of butt-kicking. haha. Keep up the good work - you are a sweetheart.


I love to hear all of your comments and I feel special that you took the time to visit me here today :)
