Wow, what a fun run that was! This was my first experience with a large sports event and I had a blast. The weather was amazing, I felt strong the whole 10k (no blisters yay) and I was so touched to see how many people showed up to cheer us on. Little kids were high-fiving us all along the way. And my worst fear of coming in last didn't materialize. In fact, I think I did pretty well for my first try. I'm certainly stoked for my marathon this fall! Thank you to everyone for your encouragement!
I also got some post-race rest by sitting at my spinning wheel. Spinning definitely has become a major "happy place" for me.
Especially when working with such lovely stuff. It's Hedgehog Fibers.
I love the soft, tender colours. Not sure yet what it will become. I'm tempted to not ply it, and instead knit with it as singles to get a pretty striped effect.
What do you think?
