Really slow jog > sitting on the couch!


w00t! Just got back from an awesome 4 mile run with the oldest manlet & his pixie. It was super slow (my fault), but oh, so sweet! I’m starting to feel a bit like I’m getting my running legs back again & it feels victorious!  :)  Won’t be quite ready for the half marathon in March, I don’t think – but I just might be up for walking half/running half if I can keep up this pace without running into an injury. We shall see as we get closer – maybe I’ll run it virtually (a truly fantastic new addition to the Florida Gulf Coast half marathons).


Finally got pictures of the 2 sweaters I knit! One is for myself, a pretty shade of pink (not usually a color I like much) with gorgeous buttons. The other I was thinking to give the pixie, but after sewing it up, I’m thinking it’s too small even for her, LOL! Good thing I know of a young lady or two that will likely be able to get some use out of it.


I also cast on a new scarf to use up 3 skeins of sock yarn. I’m really trying to knit down the stash! I am REALLY liking this pattern – I’m really surprised it doesn’t have more projects. It is easy to memorize, no purling, very quick to knit & the stitch looks awesome – check it out:

Today’s Ravelry Search

So the Faux-Hard Garter Slip Scarf pattern got me thinking that there are a good number of pretty awesome patterns out there that don’t have the love (patterns) they deserve.  Check ’em out, they are great!  These are all free, knit with sock yarn & have between 0 & 3 projects!

I wish there was a picture of this one on someone, it looks like it would be super cute!

WOW, I love the style on this one! I know someone else who will love it.  ;)

Super cute!

Very pretty & a great way to burn up that sock yarn stash!

Cool idea for using up striping sock yarns! I love it.

I love the look of linen stitches! ♥

LOVE this pattern! Awesome way to breakup a potentially ugly sock yarn & turn it into something gorgeous!

Cute idea for a long tunic/tank!

I adore Kate, she’s one of my very favorites on the planet. Very cute cowl too. ♥

Happy running & knitting – just don’t do them together!  ;)

    I am not a sweater knitter but love the faux scarf and cowl with their slipped stitches. I fell in love with the ball band washcloth from the Mason Dixon book.

    You would be missing out on the real race experience if you ran it virtually, unless you wanted a medal without actually having to run it…. Oh, smart person…
