So I woke up to a beautifully clear sky, stars still out. After it rained so much yesterday & last night, it was nice & cool – perfect temp for a run. So, got my coffee down, geared up & out the door I headed. (SOLO, I must add!) A bit of clouds in the sky, but not a lot overhead. Blue sky, sun shining, cool temps – perfect! Hit the first mile marker & saw dark clouds rolling in off the Gulf. Sure enough, by the 1.5 point, it was raining. It rained the rest of the run, but it was a gentle cooling rain with no lightning/thunder. Got back home, it was just a bit of a drizzle. I decided to round out the time & walk/jog another 2 miles. About .5 mile from returning home, the sun came back out & it was blue sky & sunny the rest of the way. Yep, running in Florida – you never know what you’re gonna get! ;)
Oh yeah – and I must have looked a bit pathetic on the run. I found that I had to hold the right arm still because of the pulled muscle. I didn’t get too many odd looks that I noticed, so I must not have looked as weird as I felt! LOL The swelling in my forehead suddenly went away yesterday – I had a lump for almost the entire week. But I had lunch with a friend yesterday, who said “wow, you didn’t tell me you had a black eye from it!” Sure enough, the outside of my right eye is that lovely shade of yellowy green that a healing bruise gets. The weird thing is that there was no blue/black/purple bruising around my eye at all for the whole week! Funny.
Have made excellent progress on the ‘Healthy Vibes’ socks. I am to the heel turn on both. I’ll be hitting the shower, then tackling that this morning. I plan to keep the socks a bit lower, as I know all the younger guys around here prefer no show socks, so I am guessing it will be safer to keep the socks lower on the ankle than further up the leg. So I definitely anticipate having the socks complete & the pattern put up here sometime during this long weekend! ;) Here is a progress update shot for you all:
Today’s Ravelry Search
So at knitting group the other night, a couple of us had briefly discussed tunisian crochet, which I absolutely LOVE. I haven’t done very much of it, but I really love how it looks! I decided right then to do a blog post featuring it. :) Enjoy! As always, click the picture to go straight to the pattern page.
Happy Saturday, everyone!
I am glad you are feeling better hun! Sorry about the gorgeous green, yellow eye. That stinks!
That Smock stitch baby blanket is awesome! Slytherin colors no less! I love the patterns you find… ;)
Take care hun. Watch out for that pulled muscle and don’t over-do!
Hey, thx, T!! :) Luckily, that nasty yellow/green seems to be mostly gone now. Whew. :D LOL on the Slytherin – true, true.
That dishcloth was exactly what I was looking for. I have a book with a similar pattern and I have been trying to explain it to my friends for weeks. thanks! Now I have a rav link
Awesome!! I’m so glad I found it for ya, then! :)
what a great list of things!! I almost forgot about this conversation. :)
*grin* I didn’t forget something for once! I was just so excited to spread the idea of tunisian! ;)
I thought you were out of commission for awhile after your last stitching mishap. Glad that you are back up ‘n running again.
I feared I would be out for awhile, too! But I’m glad I was able to get out there sooner than expected. :)
