Happy anniversary to Knitting On The Run podcast! In all the recent craziness, I forgot that last week was my podiversary! Three years down, hopefully many more to go!
Be a Helper Craftalong
4th Be A Helper Craft-a-long is ongoing! We keep the rules simple.
- Anything you make for any charity counts, doesn’t have to be knit/crochet/woven or spun. ANYthing you make for ANY charity.
- One FO per photo in the FO thread
- Donating blood counts too - post a photo of your bandaid or of you drinking OJ afterwards, something like that.
- FO Thread closes when I wake up April 1st.
- Wips are welcome
- 1 skein of Sock Yarn from A Great Yarn in Chatham, MA dyed exclusively for them by Hauteknits in the Finest Hours colorway, 75% merino, 25% nylon
• 1 25g skein of Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock plus a mini skein of handspun
Posts 2-34 were up through March 31st
South Woods – I’m continuing to work on the body in stockinette. This has been my go-to knitting while the boys are home schooling. I think I’m up to 6 or 7 inches, haven’t measured officially.
Ankle socks – a few more rows, still getting close to the 1st heal
Sassy Wrapitude – cast on for the Sassy Wrap by Megan Williams, got the pattern free from attending Into the Wool. Cast on with yellow CoBaSi by Hikoo and bamboo/cotton blend from Great Adirondack Yarn that I bought at Rhinebeck.
Ozone – swatching for the Colorful Sweater Ozone by Concept Creative – more on this later.
New shawl, can’t say much yet. Yeah I have cast-on-it is
Learn Something New
About that ozone sweater I mentioned – it’s crochet not knitting!
Exercise in Isolation
I haven’t been great in terms of keeping up with exercise this week. I did something to my wrist so I’ve been taking it easy, but I wanted to go over what we’d been doing up until that point and what my kids are still doing.
Cosmic Kids Yoga – we started this the first day of school at home, even before we got official school work. I did Cosmic Kids with my oldest when Thing 2 was born and I was so excited to find that she has kept releasing videos these last 4 years.
Karate – my boys take karate and their dojo has been sending out videos for the kids to do at home. Our dojo hasn’t made them public but several have – if your kids want to try just search google or youtube and you’ll find some.
Running around – at recess I kick the boys outide and give them a time when they can come back in. That gives me a few minutes alone without them and also gives them exercise as they usually run around outside.
Gardening – I like to grow food and gardening is definitely exercise!
Dance – I’ve done a few dance videos I’ve found online. I love Broadway musicals and several cast members have been recording video at home, workouts set to the music of their shows, and some are a lot of fun! I’ve also taken a ballet class or two.
