A Little Exercise, A Lot of Knitting

It was a quiet day, filled of nice things!


I got up for my run this morning and ended up actually running straight for a full 4.5km as James was back to walk with Brenda. I had a slow start, but then it picked up and got better:)

This afternoon I got out for a walk to the local yarn store. I could have driven, but thought a little extra exercise wouldn’t hurt.


I got a baby sweater finished for my RMT and his wife who should have a new little boy any day now.

The yarn is 100% acrylic so it is washable and will stand up to baby. The pattern is from 101 Designer One Skein Wonders. The pattern is called Zane’s Coming Home Sweater.

I also started a shawl that I am thinking will be for my friend Lyndsay for Christmas. I am using a single skein of Maryanne’s Sparkle in Simplicity that I bought at Knit City two years ago. The pattern I started is Easy Goes It, but I’m not sure about it yet. I’ve done Reyna and Stormy Skies and don’t want to do them again, but am looking for any suggestions:)

I also started another test knit for Zanete Knits and made progress, but then realized I hadn’t checked gauge and it seemed small to me. I ripped it out and will try to do a gauge swatch tomorrow.


This evening I have been watching PS I Love You as the secretary at work loaned it to me and said I needed to watch it. It’s been pretty good so far:)


I think I’ve had another good day, so I will get some sort of treat for myself. I’ve had:


A slice of pizza

A steak


I guess I’d better get organized for tomorrow.

Have fun!
