Completed my version of the Shalom Cardigan. I love it! The original version didn't have sleeves and only one button, mine has 4 buttons and long sleeves with the pattern of the yoke repeated in the sleeve. I'm very please with how this turned out! It was a fast knit.

Since i haven't been able to run i decided to go for a nice brisk 3 mile walk on Monday. Well I'm actually sore, like really sore today. I just don't understand how you can be trained for a marathon take a couple weeks off, run a hilly half marathon and three weeks later get sore from a 3 mile walk. Is it age?? who knows but i don't like it.

No running

So I'm bummed and i haven't been adding new posts! I went to the doctor and the pain I've been having in my leg is actually a stress fracture and not a strained calf muscle (my own diagnosis). No running for 4-6 weeks. I hate it!! I guess if i was going to get injured this is the best time, i don't have any races scheduled and it's winter. The thing that scares me is when I'm actually able to run again it's going to be like starting over from the beginning.

Anyway, in the mean time i have to focus on more knitting. So i finished the second glove and started another sweater.

As for the arm warmers I decided to use them as leg warmers:

I think they're cute but i look like any minute I'll might be river dancing or flash dancing. Leg warmers are back and we might as well embrace the idea plus they are so warm and cozy. I love the 80's!
