Knitting and Training

As promised here is a photo of the cap I did for one of my Grandsons. I used Michele Wyman's Off-The-Cuff Caps for Kids pattern with Biberon Merino Superfine yarn. I am casting on a second one for his brother.

My knitting has been limited lately. I have finished the black section on the first sleeve on Decapo and have completed 15 of the 85 stripped ridges. I am enjoying Hanne's design skill more and more as I knit.

As far as training has been going I have been doing several things to try to improve my overall fitness. I have joined the local Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to raise money for research. In addition to raising money I will participate in the Nike Women's Marathon and Half Marathon in San Francisco in October. I have not decided if I will do the full or half marathon yet. My husband is doing the Leukiemia Society Team in Training program as well except he is doing a half iron man triatlon.

In addition to running I have taken up swimming. I purchased this book:

I am completing the second of a twelve week program. At then end I should be able to swim one mile continuously. Never having swam except to play in the pool this is a real challenge to me.

I of course, am continuing my bicycling.

I am so impressed with your swim workouts and runs lately. That cross-training will really help with your cycling. Keep up the great work!

I showed Little Bub the hat pic and he got the biggest smile on hs face. He will look so cute wearing that.
