How did it get to be so many days without a blog post??!! I tell you my holiday days speed along twice as fast as work days!

This weekend has been mainly knitting. Saturday I had no plans to go out until I got a Starbucks BOGO coupon. I treated Brenda to coffee and we talked knitting for a half hour. I hit the grocery store for milk, but then spent the rest of the day knitting.

I had messed up the pattern on one side of my cardigan and while my mom and Brenda both said it wasn’t noticeable, I decided not to be lazy and to rip back and fix the mistake. I then spent Saturday and Sunday getting caught back up. I have separated for sleeves and have made progress on the body. I don’t think this sweater project is going to last until May 31st. I’ll be lucky if it lasts past this holiday! I am loving how the yarn is knitting up and with being a product knitter, I want it done so I can start on the next project. It doesn’t help that I transferred my knitting to do list into a cute little notebook yesterday so now I know exactly what I want to get going on!

This morning I did 8.1km in the rain with Dennis. I ran slower than usual, but it’s the first run where I haven’t felt dead halfway through. I’m not positive it wasn’t just the slower pace, but let’s hope it’s also improvement in my recovery! Kathy, I’m running as fast as I can to you and I’ll have an update later this week. I can’t wait to see where I’ve gotten to on my run to South Dakota!

I did exercise both days, though the FitOn workouts are still very annoying with my slow data. I did a kickboxing workout yesterday and Barre Core today. Hopefully one of these days, this working out thing will show on my body!

Today I did some crochet on the baby blanket I’m making solely to use up yellow acrylic that I will never knit with. It’s been cool to learn that I still remember how to crochet!

I have started another Musselburgh hat to use up a skein of yarn and to allow for mindless knitting in the car tomorrow. I will need to figure out tomorrow what yarn to put with this one as I definitely don’t have enough.

And I worked on my Bentley cardigan. I am at row 96:). I’m proud of myself for stopping🤣

Well I’m going to go crawl into bed and read my book for a while.

Have fun!

    1. I listened to an audiobook and realized I am a finisher in everything. Grocery wise it’s not a great thing, but knitting wise there’s nothing better than slipping on a new hand knit!

    1. I hope it wasn’t a fluke, but I guess I’ll find out tomorrow. Usually on holidays I do a run streak and run a little every day, but this time I’m trying three longer runs each week

  1. Something is in the air AJ, as it seems we are all taking back knitting and making mistakes. I just finished fixing something….it was going to be a sock. Now I think it will be a fingerless mitt. Im glad you had a great break!

    1. Some days I swear I do more tinking than knitting! My knitting buddy and I were just saying- imagine how many sweaters we would have if we didn’t rip out so often!
