Yesterday, we did a time trial 5k for our group run. While it was fun to push myself like that again, and I was thrilled to clock a 26:05, I was also very happy to come home and unwind with some knitting.
Last night, I finished this:
The next piece was finished lat week:
And here's my favorite finished project from this summer:
All of these projects were found on Ravelry. If you knit or crochet, Ravelry is awesome.
I'm linking up with Clover and Violet's A Season By Hand. Seriously, I don't know what I would have done recovering from surgery without projects like these. The final count of handmade items is 2 shawls, a headband, 2 pairs of mitts, 11 dishcloths, and a small cross stitch project. If I photographed it all, I'd probably put people over their data plan limits on cell phones.
THAT is what happens when an active person (who already loves crafty things) is told she can't do much of anything beyond sit on the couch.
And while I love crafting, I'm looking forward to getting a long run in this weekend. Not sure of how far; I'll probably base it off how I feel. When I get done with that, you know where to find me... in the craft room!!!!
