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! ;)
Hey there! Sooo good to see you back in blogland, I missed your posts dearly… and that someone you mentioned at the second sweater was me???? Because yesssssssss I do LOOOOOOOve it :-)
*grin* Yep, totally you! ;-)
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.
I’m really, really loving this faux scarf pattern! It looks so terrific.
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…
LOL, yes, but I’m not a big fan of crowds & all that hoopla. :D
