I’ve talked with hundreds of other runners in the past few years. Sometimes we talk about marathons, sometimes we talk about hill workouts, and sometimes we talk about technical fabric and how it affects our nipples.
We talk about pacing, or shoes, or GPS watches.
We talk about the ups and the…
I logged on to Tumblr tonight and was stunned to find that I haven’t written anything since February 19! Holy cow!
I finished my sweater right around the first week of March. I didn’t like it much at first, but I really do like it now. I cast on the Dahlia Cardigan, which is a much more complex pattern starting out - because there is a lace pattern on the back. I’m just barely in to the second chart and am having a hard time working on it because I can’t concentrate. I am going to try to get a few rounds done tomorrow by using markers every 5 stitches to keep my place in the chart. It’s my first charted project (Except for the bamboo fingerless gloves, which shouldn’t count really) and it’s definitely a challenge!
I am also still working on my Nuvem shawl. I like that one as well - but it’s miles of stockinette. It’s a good TV project though and I think I am going to love it when I am done!
Finally, I started my first felted bag project. It’s called Angela’s Fabulous Felted Bag. It’s been a fun knit as well… Can’t wait to see how it turns out when I felt it.
Oh yeah, and I’m attempting the Summer Flies shawlette again. Apparently the pattern turns out a lot better if you use the correct needle size.
Sometimes, the laws of the universe really get in my way! ;-)
I created a blog that more accurately reflects where I’m at in life.
You can follow it here.
I hope you do!
The wine I’m enjoying tonight. It’s delicious and I will definitely buy it again! (Taken with instagram)
“knitting provides everything you need to do, everything you should have learned in kindergarten. It teaches you how to focus. It teaches you how to make a task and meet that goal. It teaches you how to control your anger. And we felt that all of these skills are life skills, are job skills. These are skills that, quite possibly, many people in our society are lacking.”
