Dishcloths anyone?

I'm pretty proud of my first attempt at designing, even if it was something as simple as a boxer dish cloth. The photo doesn't entirely do it justice, but I think it turned out pretty good.

Now, I just need to write the pattern down so it can be duplicated.

I've also been working on some other cloths and soap sacks to be holiday gifts for clients, etc.

The STR socks are done for my friend, and I used some of the leftovers to make little mini-sock earrings. Photos to follow.

Representing at the Mayor's Race

Yesterday, I walked the 6.2 miles of the Mayor's Race in Portland.

It's part of the Portland marathon, and quite a big deal.

It was really cool at the end to see the Marathon runners passing by on their way to the finish line. Most of those guys didn't LOOK like they'd just run 26 miles.
Had a great time, made some converts, and didn't even get rained on.
Next year, I need to look into doing the "nordic walking" event. I think I missed out on all the fun free stuff at the end because I did the non-competitive mayor's race.
Love that free stuff.
