The ski season is coming to a close and it looks like we are going to end on a high note. The weather this weekend has been great. Perfect for egg hunts, T-shirt skiing, and hanging out on Main Street. I put a T-shirt on first thing in the morning and now I am thinking sandals are in order. As soon as I get this post taken care of I think I will wake Kooky up (he is a big fan of naps) and drag him downtown to soak up some sun on a bench and do a little knitting in public. Of course I will be sure to apply my sunscreen.
With the increasing length of the days I have been up and at it running in the mornings again. Just some low mileage to get a good base. I have a goal race in the fall and will give myself a 20 Week training program to work on starting in May. I have also been looking around for a couple of other shorter races for the summer. It feels good to be back into racing. To keep in great racing shape I am being careful with my mileage and working on my hips, which includes exercises to strengthen my glutes, core and hips. I just got this new set of exercises from Running Times. I am a running nerd, I love learning about the mechanics of running. Maybe that is why I like knitting, I love to understand the mechanics of knitting as well.
So what’s on my needles? Still working on the purple mukluks. I put them aside for a few other projects, but Kooky’s mom will be here in a few weeks and I want to have them done.
The Skyp socks are coming along. I love them, but I must put them aside for other more pressing projects, sigh…
Of course I still have DD’s blanket on the needles and I am supposed to pick up April’s pattern and yarn allotment tomorrow. Eek! I have five more repeats of the pattern to go.
Despite all this knitting I still managed to finish up my March Design It! Item. I will post pictures as soon as the thread on Ravelry goes up. Got to play by the rules. I also was a lucky winner of a brand new knitting book. I have been reading Wendy’s blog and she had a copy of Easy Openwork Knit Tops by Kennita Tully to give away. I can’t wait till it arrives, I will let you know all about it. Oh wait Kooky just woke up! Time to go out and soak up some sun.
