I've Caught Myself!

I sounds like a bad syndrome or disease, but oh no, it is a good thing I have finally caught up to myself. I feel like I am finally catching up with this whole DST thing. I drug my bum out of bed this morning and went on a great little recovery run. I did some road running and some trail running. I decided tomorrow morning if the sky is as clear as it was this morning I would bring my camera along and show you all why I drag myself out of bed so early.

I have been knitting on Wrongo and I have vowed never to buy this kind of yarn again. The yarn is very loopy and hard to knit with. I finished the body last night and my right hand is just aching today, I still have to do the head and the tail out of this yarn and then the rest is out of the cotton. I try to switch yarns to save my hands but the body was the biggest part and I just wanted to get through it so I could put that crappy yarn aside and make a few hands.

Mom, I can't seem to find a good increase to use on the purl side of the fabric does not give me a gaping hole in the monkeys hand. I have tried yarn over and the make one increase. The make one increase works okay, but I have really hard time purling into the back of the stitch to prevent the hole. If you have any suggestions for me I would really appreciate it. Have you received your gift in the mail for the "Top 10" Blog yet? Canada Post must be having the month off!

Debbles is due back from Paris tonight. I won't get to see her to hear all about the race until tomorrow. Paul found the race results online but of course now that I would like to link the site I can't find it, check out this one though and be sure you scroll all the way to the bottom and check out the amazing photo there. If I remember right her time was 4:26:19. I think I ran my first marathon in about 4:28 and change, I am so proud of Debbles for one-upping me again, I can't wait to hear about her experiences. I am curious if she will come back done with the marathon distance or bit by the marathon bug. I will be sure and let you know. I will ask her if I can post some of her photos to share with you as well.

Well done to Debs.
Kelly i think your mother should have advised you never to mess with monkeys when you were younger, that way you would not be in this mess.....but then you may not have had your lovely children.

There was a Marathon out in Morocco recently, i got the pics at work that looked stunning

Congrats to Deb! I'll look into that increase thing for you later today. You might try making a monkey out of some chenille yarn. Keefer, to monkey around is one of the most fun things.
