In exercise news, Patrick and I hit the gym today. We got a bunch of snow yesterday, so it may be another day or so before I run outside again (gotta wait for those roads to be clear!). I did intervals on the track today to try to work on my speed. Our indoor track is only 1/10 of a mile around. So I did 2 laps walk, 3 laps run 6 times with a 1 mile walk cool down. Total Miles: 4.0 miles Total Time: 57:30 minutes. I was only going to walk half a mile cool down, but I got to chatting with a friend on the track and got distracted. That's ok, because it's helping me get to my 1000 miles in 2011 goal!
I keep forgetting, but I wanted to post some pictures of more of the things that I crocheted as gifts for Christmas. I couldn't post before because some were gifts for family that read this blog.
Here is a hat and bootie set I made. I actually made two. One for a baby shower I went to in November and one for our neighbors whose baby is due next month.
I also made a blanket for the baby shower in November. They used it during their newborn pictures, and I was so flattered. (Please note: I did not make the beautiful baby, just the blanket!)
Next, I made a hat, mitten, and scarf set for my mother. I think she is satisfied.
These are ornaments that I made that look like Christmas lights. I made many sets of these! All my family got them and I sent them out for a couple ornament swaps I was in.
And I made a hat for the man:
I made a ton of hats that were basically all the same, but different colors that I didn't take pictures of. Oh well! Now I'm working on a cabled afghan for our living room. Considering I've given away all three of the blankets I've made, it's about time I made one to keep!
