I don't know about you, but January has flown by for me. I've been knitting kind of loosey goosey with no real plans in sight. Sometimes you need that! Here are my January totals for the 1K KAL:
So I'm a long way off in my goal of $1000 or 1000 hats but we all have to start somewhere. Remember, you can enter to win the month's prize by knitting a baby hat OR donating ($5 = 1 entry). As always, I am so appreciative to have you on this journey with me!
Since we have no monetary donations for the month, that just leaves one winner, Kristy! You've won a skein of Knit Collage Pixie in your choice of color. I love this yarn! So schlubby and sparkly!
This month I have a real treat for you: a project bag sewn by my friend Woollybags in custom Knittn' Little fabric.
These bags have the large print chick on the outside, and logo/chick fabric inside. Complete with a pop of color from the robin's egg blue ribbon this can hold about two cakes of yarn along with a small project. I used one of Woollybags' project bags back when I was knitting the boy's Wrigley pullover from my book. We have two bags to giveaway; one for a baby hat donation and one for a monetary donation (FYI, $5 is a steal for a project bag!).
So my first race this year is at the end of April and with that means half-marathon training is set to start next week. So I spent much of January increasing my average weekly mileage so I didn't head into February cold. Would you believe that last Sunday, on an early morning run to breakfast I tripped and fell and pulled something in my leg. I ran on it 4 more times in the following week and now, after seeing the doctor, I'll be riding the bike at the gym for the next week or two. Hopefully after two week's I'll be back on my training plan. Either way, I'm getting too old to take a spill on uneven sidewalk!
Thank you again for joining me on this run to raise money and hats for children in need. You can find all the information you need with info on prizes and a link to my donation site under the 1K KAL tab. If you're interested in donation a prize, please let me know! I appreciate all your support ❤️
