Still no jeans

I still haven't started sewing the jeans yet! I did knit the second sock...or should I say I attempted. I read the directins wrong and had to unravel all that I  knit. I'm going to give that a rest for a while. Before I cut the jeans out I cut Butterick 5328. I decided to get it out of the way first.




I'm making it out of a chocolate brown stretch polyester crepe. After reading the reviews on PR I raised the neckline some. I also lengthed it 1 1/2". I made a 5/8" but not sure I needed to now that I got it sewn together. We'll see. I changed the sleeve a little. Although I haven't sewn them in yet they will be long but with a gathered sleeve cap.

I can tell that I'm finally getting back to normal after the cancer and treatment because I started back working out about a week ago.  My joints aren't aching like they were when I tried about 6 months ago and I'm looking forward to my workouts. Yippeee! I'm taking it easy but am feeling better after so many months without exercise. Right now I'm just doing aerobics but am going to start weight training the first of February. My husband and I are going to start training for a 10 mile race that is an annual event here. I've participated before and did it in 2 hours. Since we're going to walk it this time I think I'll try for 2 1/2 hours. I don't want to kill myself. Hey I gotta get off of here. It's auction day and I can't be late
