Yep. Still Knitting the Blanket.

I just wanted everyone to know I'm still here ... still knitting that baby blanket!

I have about 8 more squares to go, then I knit them together and knit or crochet the border, I forget which. I forget how I did it last time.

I've been knitting at it slowly, but not steadily. I've been busy training for a half-marathon, which is in just 7 short weeks. Plus the weather got warm enough to get outside and do chores, so between the two, I haven't been inside much! Did you know that when you train for something athletic like a half-marathon, you have to spend a LOT of time on food? Planning what food to eat, in what combination, what type of carbs to eat (simple before a run, complex the rest of the time), protein after the workout, and a steady stream of fluids and fluid-y fruits and vegetables in between. Can't just grab a sammich and go anymore! I can't even say I eat x many small meals a day; it's more like I start eating in the morning and keep eating for 12 hours! It takes a lot of fuel to get through a 9-mile run, which is where I am currently.

I hope to finish this blankie within a couple weeks, and then I don't know what I'll move on to.

Looking forward to seeing what you all are working on!
