Moth and New CO Update

Thank you for all your advice regarding my (unwelcome) house guests. I have taken action.....I have bought some sealable plastic bags and some cedar wood hearts and if they can get through that lot to my stash, good luck to them!!

I still haven't been able to bring myself to look and see if I have been infiltrated, I may as well save the surprise of that for when the bags come and I can sort it all out properly.

In the depression of it all, I have cast on Garter Toes which I found on Ravelry as a free download. I am using Mirasol Hacho in blue, which feels lovely and cottony.

This picture is a good representation of the colour too. Here they are in progress, although they are a little bit longer now as this was taken yesterday..

They do look a bit pointed on the end, but I am trying not to think about that.

Today, 2 of my sisters ran the Race for Life 5km for Breast Cancer Research. They ran it in memory of my mum, Chrissie, who went to live in heaven in 1997 and has been unable to get a flight back since she went! They both did so well, especially Rozi, who has also lost 2 stone in the process of her training, and she looked amazing today. Here she is, well, the back of her, looking demurely over her shoulder!!!

On the 25th of June, me and 2 sisters and some friends are running the same thing, and I will have my mum on my back too!

She would have said we were mad!

socks are looking great and well done to your sisters on the race for life. I'm doing it 6th July and have done zero training, but I will be walking it anyway as I am doing it with mum who can' run. I've managed to walk it the past 2 years with out training so not too worried. If I feel like it after my exams and my theory is correct (see blog post coming soon) I may well do some training and see if mum minds if I run/walk it and meet her at the end.

Well done for the running and the Race for Life. My friend did the Moonwalk at the weekend and was exhausted today, but really enjoyed it.
