Happy Birthday to Me!

Good morning! It's very early. I have a bug bite on my neck from yesterday, my big toe hurts, and I'm pretty sure this whole running thing was a bad idea. Also, my hair looks funny. How are you?

Really, I'm sure it will be fine once I start. The sporty people just make me nervous. I scurried through the expo as fast as possible yesterday, grabbed my number and timing chip and went back to the car to knit. I am the expo vendors' biggest nightmare. Although I did manage to spot people with free ice cream, and deploy Kevin to bring me some (he isn't intimidated by the sporty people). Do you think Ben and Jerry will also give me free ice cream after the race?

In other news, I stayed as far as possible from the bunnies at the MA Sheep and Wool Festival yesterday, but I did by fiber to make up for it: 2 skeins of sock yarn (in preparation pretending I'm going to try to knit a pair of socks a week starting in 6 days), 4 oz. of fiber, and a gigantic skein of lace-weight. Maybe someone could run in front of me carrying my new yarn like a carrot?

Happy, Happy Birthday, Rebecca.

I hope the run went well.

Thinking of you.

Promise me that you'll make something super fun with that Spunky yarn. I loved that thing. I just had a budget and had nothing to make with it. Did it have a colorway on it? Maybe next time I can get the same colorway.

Nowhere near the computer on your bday, but Happy Belated none the less. Glad to hear the race went well and that you got some yarn as pre-race presents. If I was around, I think I might have offered to dangle the yarn in front of you... How about next time, we'll find you another racer and maybe they are willing to wear them on their back for ya? :)
