It's Been Sooooo Long

Okay, it's been a long time since I last posted. Is there anyone still out there?

The summer just flew by. I spent a month housesitting in my old neighborhood so I could be close to Big Guy. I didn't get to spend nearly as much time with him as I'd like because the other parent was not cooperative. But it was still great being that close to him and I was also close to my mom and stepdad so it was great being there. The catnip mice and the dishcloths are for the woman (and her cat!) whose house I watched. There was also a dog to tend, but pics of pig's ears (apparently dogs love them!) don't make for good blog posts.

The baby kimono is from Mason-Dixon Knitting (or whatever the name of it is). I used the newish twisted dishcloth cotton purchased at Hobby Lobby, but Michael's has it now too. It's not as bulky as the regular dishcloth cotton so it's much easier for me to attain gauge.

The alpacas were at a fiber fest I went to last weekend.

Still running, but in air conditioned comfort at a local fitness center. I didn't achieve my goal of getting trained in time for the fall 5Ks, but have great hope for the spring ones. I should have listened to the trainer and been training on a 2% incline since treadmills do most of the work for you! I was running with a 0% incline and it just wasn't going to translate to outdoor street running. But I do love the "high" which running gives me.

Happy Knitting!
