Not,.......an actual FO?!

Yes, an actual FO. On my knitting blog. If that's not controversial, I don't know what is.

Here it is, in all its glory. And quite clearly good for its intended purpose too. The Log Cabin Blanket from Mason Dixon Knitting. As modelled by Teddy. It was made with Crystal Palace Cotton Chenille, a pale green colour. Then finished off with just a row of a brown/ginger colour, to match the piping on the sofa.

Matthew couldn't see Teddy have his picture taken without him, so here he is too.

The knittyboard blog stalking subject a week or so ago was "What's for Breakfast". Well it's taken me a week or so to post, but this was mine and the boys' breakfast on said day. The boys had Weetabix with bananas cut up in it. And I had Kashi 7Grain Honey Puffs, with my banana on the side :-) Yum.

This week's subject is another easy one: "your junk drawer".

Or in my case, drawers.....

I have been ramping up my fitness schedule this last month or so, trying out the "Couch to 5K" program. It gets new runners from zero to 5k in only 2 months. The program, for me, has been so achievable. The whole of last week I didn't go to the gym, afraid of my next run which would be a full 20 mins with no breaks.

Well, yesterday, I got myself to the local YMCA where I workout and actually did it. I have to admit being very proud of myself. I have never been a runner, the longest I've ever run before was 15 mins. So this is pretty major for me.

After the run, I went to Publix for some groceries, then to school to pick up Matt. I got there with a few mins to spare so reached for my knitting in my handbag. Which wasn't there!!! I dashed back to Publix and in my haste to get to the store, tripped over their ridiculous kerbs that separate the parking spaces (why do they have those and not just paint lines?). This is the result.....

One very icky knee. On top of that, a cold came on yesterday afternoon, and I'm aching from the run too. AND I can't bend the icky knee as it breaks open the 'wound'. Eew.

At least they had my handbag.

Tomorrow is a better day. Book Club, discussing Snowflower. Can't wait :-) :-)

Ouch! Congrats on the run, but too bad you'll have to take a break for a few days!

The blanket looks fabulous!! And by the looks on that cute little face, it must feel comfy too!

What's on the needles now? Hopefully Jaywalker is coming along because there is going to be some STR coming to you soon!!!

Take 2...

Sorry about your knee - that must hurt. I have multiple junk drawers as well - but at least yours has money in it!

That knee looks splendidly icky, the way it's oozing, ewww.

At least I know what the next assignment is now, cheers.

Love the blanket! And the cuties modeling it!

Ouch on your knee though!

Now I must see if there's cash in my junk drawer!
