Tonight I started a Zumba class (the latest version of Dancercize) On the plus side--I still have the stamina and rhythm to make it through an active hour-long class. On the other hand--thank goodness for hot showers, Tylenol, and Aspercreme!

Fiber and Zumba!
Spring break was this week--but I went in to campus anyway. Three of us "borrowed" the textile lab so I could show them how to make felt scarves. Compared to spinning and knitting or weaving, felt is instant gratification. You just lay it out on a piece of bubble wrap, roll it up, and rub it for awhile. Here's Wanda and Nancy with their scarves. Note that I'm not showing mine. I thought I'd go outside my comfort zone and away from my earth-tone colors and did one with a yellow base and red and blue decorations on one side and orange swirls on the other. It was . . . not attractive. Later I went to a spin-in at the local knit shop (Really Knit Stuff) for an evening of spinning, nibbling, and talking.
