I keep thinking that I should take pictures of stuff, but then I keep forgetting and then I think it's no point blogging without pictures and therefore no blogging has been happening. Well I still don't have any pictures to show, but I thought I should better put something out there to the internets.
I have started knitting the Kipling again. Though I have appeared to have picked up 10 more stitches along the shoulder than the pattern states. I am going with it as it looks tidy, but whether it ends up being way too wide, I am not sure. I am going to decrease six along the top to make it more puffy. I just have to remember what I do so I do the same on the second sleeve.
I started a Milo. I am using Patons Big Baby 8ply in a weird shade of Pink. I have finished the shoulders and I am about to start the main body with the cabling. Hopefully it won't take too long now. I just have to sit down and do it.
I did some sewing over the Easter weekend. I am making overalls/romper suit. It is looking ok. It's about 1/3 done.
I finished some more Bibs - tried out some patches and half and half. I am trying to use up all sorts of scraps.
I also made another tunic but I have to put the buttons/button holes on it yet.
As you can probably guess, I have lots of things on the go but not really much completed. Hence the lack of blogging. I haven't really don't a lot of craft stuff in the last month. Hopefully the next month will be better, but I am feeling like gardening now...
I bought plane tickets for my mum to come and visit me here in Perth. Yay!! It's only a couple of weeks away now.
I bought a bike last weekend. It is a utility bike. I wanted one to get me to work nice and easy. I biked yesterday and today to work. I forgot how much I enjoyed the wind in my hair, though my arse needs to harden up a bit or I need a better seat.
I have been running this year and I am now running the 5Km Park Run semi regularly. I ran the 10km Asics Bridge to Bridge run early April in 1:21:23. I am pretty happy with that as I didn't stop at all. It's the furthermost I have ever run. I have the 8Km Mother's Day run in a couple of weeks and then the HBF 12km run at the end of May. I am doing ok with the distances, but I can't seem to increase my pace. I need to get back on the treadmill and force myself to go faster.
Reece and I went to Melbourne the weekend before Easter for a wedding. It was a fast trip, but good fun was to be had at the weekend. We didn't know many people but everyone was nice and friendly.
I normally have a picture of Magnet at this point. You will have to imagine him here....
