Episode 6


Robin Shawl by Lee Meredith – on last section! Teacher’s gift for son’s pre-school teacher – she wears lots of grey and lots of shawls and the 2 colors of Ito’s Kinu 100% silk are a light gray and a charcoal gray

Linen sweater – finished back and button band; bought buttons and grosgrain ribbon – still needs short sleeves

Empire Top by Lily Go – got a few more rows done on Friday

Hithicker Shawl by Martina Behm – Valley Yarns Greylock, 100% cashmere fingering weight - 4 points done so far


Forgot to list one bought last week at Webs – Berocco Remix, a recycled yarn made of 30% Nylon/27% Cotton/24% Acrylic/10% Silk/9% Linen in color Strawberry. For the 2nd and last teacher’s project of this year – going to be a cabled scarf for head teacher

In the Garden

Got some seeds planted in the garden! – lettuce, mesculin greens, swiss chard – first round of each. Hoping to get out more this week and plant carrots, kale, parsnips, turnips and sugar snap peas

Knitting Fail

Robin shawl – I dropped a stitch at PT yesterday and didn’t realize it, but it only dropped about 4 rows. Thankfully it’s like a raw silk and very grabby so it didn’t go far. I laddered it back up and at the end I’ll cut a piece of yarn to lock it in place and weave the ends in. Then I decided to take a closer look… and found 2 more dropped stitches further down that I hadn’t noticed!!! How long have I been knitting???

On the Run

No running – lots of PT. Lots of scar tissue release which is helpful but can feel worse than rolling out your IT bands!

Plus – BOSTON MARATHON! I’m a local girl, born and raised in the Boston suburbs, I watched the race growing up and I would love to run someday as a charity runner, but it’s unlikely. I am waaaaaaaay to slow to qualify. When the boys are a little older I’d love to take them in to watch the race, once we don’t need a wheelchair. Race security is tight, especially near the finish line, since the bombing.

So I should probably answer the obvious questions – no, I was not in Boston when the bombs went off but my husband was, several friends and a cousin were. All were safe, thankfully.

Plus, I go on a little soap box about how awesome runners are. But I’m biased.
