My gloves for the KAL are coming on nicely and I have just started the thumb shaping. I made a boo-boo on the first couple of M1 rounds because I wasn't concentrating. I used the 'knit in the front and back of stitch' method without thinking and of course it left holes. DOH! So, I had to frog it and undo some rows and then redo them, making new stitches by picking up the loop between and knitting into the back of it.
I was thinking about starting another crochet project and remembered reading about someone recycling plastic carrier bags by knitting them into bags. I have now accumulated a stash of purple, green and red carrier bags from Ocado and am busy cutting them into strips ready to crochet. I think I'll start with a simple stitch such as double crochet and see what develops as I think that should make it nice and strong. I also fancy making another afghan (well, you can never have enough when you've got 2 comfort-loving cats!) so need to delve into my stash to see what colours I've got.
Must take some photos soon but I've been really busy decorating our bedroom and haven't had much time for blogging. There are curtains to be made too.
My running is going well (touch wood) and I've got my mileage back up around the 50 miles a week mark. Last weekend I ran 15 on Saturday and then 20 on Sunday (in the pouring rain and wind). This weekend will be my first ever double, with 20 on both days (gulp!) then the week after I get a step-back week where I reduce my mileage to let my body and indeed my mind recover.
