Couch to 2.26 miles…

Today marks the beginning of Couch to 5K. Day 1 - not too sore. there were 8 segments of running for 60 seconds followed by brisk walking for 90 seconds. Sandwiched between two 5 minute warm up and cool down walks. Success.

4 square

Started the fourth square. And I made a big mistake. I picked up the stitches from the wrong side of the first miter. Didn't notice until I was finished with it. I don't know what made me not cut the yarn this time, but I didn't, and only had to rip back. So, Now I am on to the log cabin part of square 4.

Pulled Pork in the oven… yum. Using one of my Corolla Light BBQ sauces. There's a reason I buy a dozen or so of those every time we go down there…

Ride like the Wind…

Or, rather, into it! 18 miles yesterday. Hoped to ride to Bethesda, but the wind was just too much!

And I'm making progress on the Mitered Squares. Almost finished with number 3.

More Squares

The squares are multiplying! I have at least one in each color and will eventually have at least three. There are three basketweave sizes, so I'll alternate them in the finished blanket.

And I have a new Square project. The Mitered Crosses for Japan Blanket.

This is a really fun square to knit. And It's Noro Silk Garden which is lovely to knit with! There will eventually be 12 squares, each with a different colorway in the center, but all with purples, greens and rust.
