Pinch me...I can hardly believe it!!!!!

Well, the blanket is done, done, done...stick a fork in it - it's DONE!!!!!! I finished the knitting this morning and just couldn't stop so I wove in all the ends and did a single crochet border on all four sides. Here is me, messy Sunday hair and all, and my labor of love...well, labor of something...


I couldn't resist striking a pose. Mark had to bring up the fact that my pants match the blanket. Gee, thanks Mark.

Now it is on to my Sock Wars second sock. I discovered that my assasin is dead so I've earned a bit of a reprieve. I was drinking and knitting out in Winter Park yesterday - feeling all great about working on the sock and stuff - until I finally faced that fact that there were no (zero, zilch, nada) rows ending on the correct pattern stitch. So, I frogged back to the ribbing and put the sock back in it's bag...Sean and his friends I was with thought it for the best as I was already 2 pints, an Irish car bomb, and a margarita into the evening...with another margarita on the way. Good times.

On the TNT front - I ran 6 miles yesterday morning in 58:30 with a negative split (second 3 miles was faster than the first 3). I'm also over half-way to my fundraising minimum. Don't forget to check out the site if you're interested in learning more...or donating...

The blanket looks awesome!

Keep up the good work with Sock Wars! I did it once and apparently am not a fast knitter because I died pretty quickly. hehe
