Yes, I know the word random doesn't start with a W, but I was wanting a little faux alliteration today so I added the W. Also, I know that alliteration means the words should sound the same at the beginning, but I'm calling this faux visual alliteration, so work with me.
Mostly, today's post is random or wrandom, whichever works.
I thought I'd start with happenings of the past and move to plans for the future. A little organization to the randomness, huh?
This past week saw two somewhat new items exiting my shop. Well, one really new one and one that I just hadn't made in a long time.
Someone else put in a request for this baby quilt:
Another bit of wrandomness that appeared in my inbox yesterday was this:
I'm needing to knit a hat by Sunday morning. Well, not needing to exactly, but really wanting to. Sunday morning I'm running my first-ever half marathon and, me being me, feel I must commemorate this event by making something. I made this hat a few weeks ago while my daughter was home from college, but ended up giving it to her to take back to Atlanta. I have yarn to make a second one, but am a little worried that I'll run out of time and have to wear, perish the thought, a store-bought hat. A hat is probably a necessity as word has it the temperature at start time will be in the mid-30's. I can't help but imagine myself running the race with my new hat on my head and my ipod tuned to Alison Weir's The Lady in the Tower. Last Sunday I ran 11 miles listening to that story and made it home just in time for Anne Boleyn's unfortunate beheading. I could purchase a new book to listen to during the race but I'm worried the other 5,000 plus people running it will distract me from the story, so it's best to stick to one I already know.
If you happen to have hat or race-day advice, by all means, let me know.
