Wear it to the regular gym, though, and it turns out to be a testosterone magnet. I learned this yesterday, when I wore it to work out. That my husband was in the same gym, working out along with me, mattered not one whit. It was raining men, all tripping over themselves (and him) to give me more unsolicited attention than I could handle.
"Can I show you this technique?"
"Do you need me to show you how to use this machine?"
"How about I spot you, there?"
"Here, can I wipe you down? You're sweating awfully hard."
"Can I lift that weight for you?"
"Shall I put that back for you?"
"Would you like some water?"
"Have you seen the DVD of my last ultimate fighter match?" (He owns the gym. I know, right? Much cuter in person, btw. Not that I care.)
"Will we be seeing you in at 6 a.m. from now on?"
"How about a foot rub?" (that one I made up)
So I decided I was going to rethink whether I was going to wear this top to the muscle-y testosterone gym any more. I am a feminist, after all -- confident, strong, independent, and unaffected by all that crap. Unsolicited male attention can be idiotic and a right royal pain in the ass. I'm here for one purpose and one purpose only, guys: to GET FIT. Bugger the hell off.
On the other hand.........there is this: On a dreary Saturday afternoon, a 48-year-old woman got more unsolicited male attention than she could handle. So....while I'm cogitating long and hard on whether I'll be wearing this top to the muscle-y testosterone gym any more, I've rinsed it out and hung it up to dry, so it'll be ready to wear tomorrow.
Oh, and by the way, it's a matched pair.
Mittens. I mean mittens. Focus on my eyes, not my chest, people.
Child's Medium, Knitted for Soaring Eagles Project
Mission Falls 1824 wool (black) and Louet Gems (the blue multi) dyed by Pippi (That skein is going FAR. There's still more left!)
Meanwhile, growing a bit tired of knitting worsted-weight mittens, I've found a skein of Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in my stash, and it is already on its way to becoming the next pair of Soaring Eagles mittens, using this pattern. Wicked fast, wicked cool.
