Ack! Sorry for the long awaited post! The days seemed to zoom by this week. There hasn't been too much knitting going on lately. Instead I have been reviewing the knitting books I purchased in bulk from the KnitPicks summer book sale. I figured I should at least take a look at them, before the books I ordered from Interweave's sale come. I am such a book harlot, it is not even funny. Even when I wasn't knitting during the previous year, I would pull the knitting books out, look at the pictures, and read the patterns. My mom loves to read cook books and apparently the gene got passed on to me in the way of knitting books.
Tomorrow I promise to post a picture of the cutest little bag that I got from Theresa. It is an adorable Summer of Lace bag.
In other news, I have started running. No the bugs here in Florida haven't gotten that big. I (stupidly?) told a friend that I really want to do the Disney Half-Marathon. Instead of smiling and nodding at my pipe dream. She said "Okay, let's do it." Now that I have other people committed I realized that I need to start to get back into shape. I have started a super beginner training schedule and it has been going well so far. I completed the first week with only one hiccup (I switched my workout and rest days for Thursday and Friday because I was so tired on Thursday night). The only problem with this training schedule is less time for knitting! I am hoping that even though I will now have less knitting time, the knitting time will be more productive, because I will be in better shape.
P.S. You must go see WALL-E. It is the cutest movie ever, plus there are highlights from one of my favorite movies, Hello Dolly!
