In Training

I forgot to post anything last night (where I could have added pictures) because I rode my bike on the trainer in my garage for like 30 minutes and my brain turned to mush.  I really want to get faster for the MS150 this year and I’m convinced that I’m incapable of picking up speed.  However, I’m trying to be on the bike around 5 days a week and to push myself to do intervals and things like that to increase my performance.  This will undoubtedly cut into my knitting time, but those are the breaks, I suppose.

Onto my knitting athletic endeavors!  Yesterday I finished my Branching Out scarf that I started just before Christmas.  It will be a valentine’s day gift for somebody special and I will show it to you when it’s blocked.  I am almost finished with my second to last piece of my Cutaway Cardigan.  I have a feeling that the finishing is going to get me on this one, with all the seaming and picking up stitches, but I’m ready for the challenge.  The only other thing I’d like to complete before the Olympics begin is a pair of thrummed mittens for my friend’s little girl.  Otherwise, that should get me all caught up.  Of course, I would like to start some socks and maybe a Kiri shawl, but I’m going to go for finishing the Cutaway and mittens first, and we’ll see what happens from there.  And that is your One Stitch Short Knitting Olympic Update.
