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:

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