Happy New Year to everyone!
May 2011 be a happy, healthy and peaceful year for everyone.
I made a start on Two last night and I quite like the effect of the eyelet pattern. Apart from the heart pattern which comes next, it is a very boring stocking stitch pattern so I'll probably alternate between this and some bargello. I quite like to have some mindless knitting on the go as it's useful for if I'm watching TV and I don't need to worry about colour changes or counting stitches.
My first run in 2011 went well. I had to run 6 miles at my target marathon pace so I found a route that had at least a few (actually 3.5 miles) of flat ground which made it a bit easier. It's quite hilly round here and so chugging up the hills can really slow my pace down. I felt OK afterwards but I was quite sluggish this afternoon. I need to shake off this post Christmas lethargy!
