Knitting and Running
I still haven't figured out how to knit and run or cycle at the same time. Have you? Let me know if you do, you would change my life.
Anyway, I know I have been gone for almost a month! I won't give you any excuses, you have heard them all and likely lived them as well. A friend told me today she misses my Fitness Friday posts and I thought, Yeah! I have a lot to update for Fitness Friday! And, Hey! I can do an update on my knitting. So here I am, back in the saddle, while the kids run around playing in the water.
I have not been doing much knitting for the simple reason that every project I want to do, I either can't find the needles for or I don't have the right yarn. I know what you are saying... so go buy some! Well, I did, but it hadn't come in the mail yet. Hurry Knit Picks! I'm going mad!
I literally got everything ready to make a pair of socks and realized I only had 3 DPNS. I started to make this dress that you see in the picture for Sofia and I can't find my size 4 needles ANYWHERE. I should have just gone down to the store and got some, but I have been eyeing these needles at KP for so long, I figured I would just go for it!
So now... I.... Wait...
The dress is the Fiona. Well, it is more of a tunic really. I have made it before and loved it, so I thought I would make a bigger one this time. I've been making so many things for Eva lately that I thought I ought to make something for Sofia. She is very excited!
As for reading, I haven't been able to do much other than what I am reading with the kids. We just finished D'Aulaires' Book of Greek Myths and we are just starting The Lightning Thief . For me, well I wanted to reread Running Like a Girl , but could not find it anywhere I blame that book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up for everything going missing in my life). Plus I promised to let a friend borrow it and it has run away (get it? Get it? hahaha, sorry... shameful) So I found this book, Runner's World Complete Book of Women's Running, on my shelf and thought it might help motivate me a bit.
So there you have it. A long winded post about the things I am not knitting and the things I am not reading.
Ok, just so you know, as I was reading through this post, guess what came??
Mary said I made a weird sound what I saw it. Whatever. It was joy, ok? Well, better run! I got some knitting to do!!!
Going Ginny and Nicole for some crafting excitement.
