WIP Wednesday: From spinning to sprinting

If exceptions make the rule, then I'm setting myself up for a fully-regimented 30 weeks of marathon training.  Because I gave blood today, I figured I was unlikely to be able to complete the scheduled 3-mile run.  So instead, I ran it yesterday morning, making my grand total mileage 4.5 miles.  I haven't even tried counting how many miles I'll have posted in training before the marathon, I have a feeling that it might freak me out a little.  All I need to know is that I have another 1.5 miles scheduled for tomorrow after using today as a rest day.

Even though the Tour de Fleece is technically over, I haven't taken any rest days from spinning.  I'm still adding to the final cop with neatly placed wraps around the spindle:

I love the colorful geometry of it, like a purple Chrysler building.

I've also started work on that second sleeve of my cardigan.  It's not much to look at yet, but here's a look at the beads I bought over the weekend:

Don't they go perfectly?  It's giving me something to look forward to when I'm picking up all of those stitches for the ruffle.

So there are three of my works in progress: spinning, knitting, and running.  For more WIPs, go to Tami's Amis.


  1. Good luck on the running, spinning and knitting! I love those beads!

  2. Beading is certainly something to look forward to. And I will look forward to seeing the progress.
