The Gang That Walks Together Hangs Together

Last weekend, some of Team U went to Stitch N Pitch at the Oakland A's. The "giveaway" was lame (a cheapo tote bag and a scarf pattern) but the beer was cold, the hot dogs were tasty and the company was fun!

And since we've invested about $1M in walking gear, we signed up for the Race for the Cure 5k (walking!)

Unfortunately for me, I still have foot pain in my right foot and found out this week that I have a partially torn tendon so I was sidelined. Fortunately, honorary Team U member K came along to hang out while the Girls were walking.


Knitting wise, I finally was able to start Mystery Shawl 4 yesterday and, as the world's slowest lace knitter, have a ways to go before I catch up to clue 3.

I think, in response to all the negative and scary News this past week, I had this urge to do something comforting and so I knit dishcloths. I must have been really stressed because I made 7 .
And, in a knitting first, I even knit some Halloween themed dishcloths BEFORE the actual event!

Another great day with TU! Cute dishcloths.

Mystery shawl-- I think it's going to end up being an intricate representation of Dark Lord Sauron from Lord of the Rings. Isn't it obvious? Sorry for ruining the ending.

You're going to make me cast on for MS4. I signed up for it. I have yarn & beads, but ugh, I don't have time for lace. I need to finish your socks, and a million baby things. lol. :)

Glad to see you posting again :D

If those aren't aboutgbvffff b (sorry, cat posting) the most wonderful washcloths in the world, I don't know what is.

So sad about your foot -- I hope it heals quickly. At least you know how to cheer effectively for the rest of the team.
