What's On My Hooks, Needles, and Spindles:

Not yet finished:
The OHM Shawl by Michelle Miller .
Yes! I am back on this project!

One Row Lace Scarf...I'm enjoying it much more than I ever expected.

The Whacky Socks are back!

Not on my needles, but worth a mention:

Teapot Ballerina Kit by Wool Girl. See her other excellent kits here. Mine has a pattern by Michelle Miller plus lots of other goodies and a skein of yarn from Zen Yarn Garden!


The Apple-A-Day Shawl KAL is here! Brenda's shawl for this year is gorgeous!
Yarn from BeeMiceElf. Brenda is the host of the KAL.

Dizzy Blondes: 

The third (!) 8 ounces of Shetland wool from RenCon Ranch--still in process.

Some meanderings about drive bands.


Confront your fears. People depend on you. And if my Goofy Newfie can do it....

Put a Lid On It:

I now am a homemade-yogurt convert. Recipe on my Pinterest account or in a note following the last episode on its Ravelry thread. And some sweet pickles and jellies (grape & sour cherry) were also put up.


Aw Shoot!

Race recovery phase is over; I am signing up for more races to keep the momentum.
Ravelry has a group dedicated to Fitbit users: here.

Something I Really Like:

My Fitness Pal--an app and website I like even better than Lose It because it reads my Fitbit account for me,

A Wonderful Breakfast:
1 cup yogurt
1/2 banana
2/3 Tbsp local honey
1/4 cup Uncle Sam's Original cereal or your favorite cereal

Or skip honey & banana and use 1 Tbsp of good fruity jam or preserves

Under 300 calories.


Dog news, new podcast for runners to be mounted soon, and just me gasping my way uphill.
