As far as the yoga at work goes, I found a free Kindle app that has a 20 minute routine that's just right for my skill level and seems to work all my parts. I did it every day when I was gone, walked on the treadmill on Sunday, and then did yoga at work yesterday. I'm determined to do something every day for a month. My muscles and joints need it and my head needs it more. The routine isn't so strenuous that I get over-sweaty or extra-winded so it's perfect for sneaking into a quiet space at work, and not bad if someone calls or comes in. Plus doing it every day makes me feel good--and virtuous.
There was a beginning knitting class last week at The Clearing too (along with Beginning Watercolor and Build a Stacked Stone Wall) and I drooled over the sweater the knitting teacher wore, a different one every day. The first day she had on a vest that looked like some kind of special brioche stitch but it's knit1below, from the book of the same name. I quick looked it up on Amazon on my phone, saw the price, and checked the local library. They have a copy so I put it on hold and picked it up today. I think I've found my stitch to learn for October. (I just went on Amazon for the link and see that there are a bunch for sale for around five bucks, hmmm... this would make a good Christmas gift, DS & DD, a used one I mean)

Even though work wasn't busy that was all I had wits for last night. The sun's out today. I think I'll take my knitting book outside and read about this new intriguing stitch.
