It seems the two biggest things that I have going on right now are the upcoming half marathon and my sweater. And while they seem very different, there are a few similarities.
1. Time - Both require a lot of time that most people wouldn’t spend on this. The training hours and the hours knitting are extensive.
2. Soreness - My legs and the rest of my body are seemingly continuously sore from the training runs. While I am recovering from the runs, I usually participate in marathon knitting sessions that my hands sore and stiff.
3. Training – Both of these things require a lot of skill. You can’t just leave your house and run 13 miles, or at least I can’t. You can’t just pick up some knitting needles and knit a sweater, or at least I can’t.
The similarities are there. If I could figure out how to run and knit at the same time, my life would be complete.
I ran 10.6 miles yesterday. It sucked, but not near as bad as the 10 mile run last week. My legs today feel as if only a little train has run over them. So definitely progress is being made.
And here is my sweater on Saturday evening. I know it is a short sleeve, but I wanted to be able to wear this throughout the spring. Progress!
Since then I have added another sleeve. All that is left is the finishing and the mistake hiding. I am saving the final sleeve for the final reveal. I am excited. I am really doing this!!
I also have a super secret to show you, next Friday.
