Knitting Is Good For You, Gives You Strength

I love the Tour de France. Loooooove the Tour de Fleece. But I couldn’t keep up the pace of my personal challenge this year. Well, I guess I could have, but doing so meant less time for reading and much less time for knitting.

Last year, it worked out. I managed to devote the number of minutes to spinning each day that the riders rode in miles. This year, I kept it up through Stage 10, but then summer things started happening, like visitors and gardening and going places. Getting in the set amount of spinning directly correlated with very little knitting. I just couldn’t take it anymore. A person has to knit. It’s like Guinness. 


So knitting. Here we are yesterday morning. I was knitting while waiting for P to get ready to go run errands. Lola was helping.

I knitted in the car, and I knitted when we got home. And I even woke up in the night and knitted.

Lola was dubious about this decision.

But it was all good. I also made a start at using some of the zucchini bounty from our garden. We had Glazed Lemon Zucchini Bread for dessert, and it was pretty tasty.

I think we ate about a third of a 9 x 5 loaf!

And here’s the really fun news. Remember the wedding afghan? Well, here it is in situ:

I got this picture from my friend J. She knew it would make me smile, and she was right. It brings me huge happiness to see her babies enjoying the knit love.
