Close Knit Family

During our most recent pool day, I was knitting on my Zauberball socks and my niece, Riley wanted to knit too! I helped a little, but mostly she wanted to work with Auntie Krissy! It was great to see two of my favorite people knitting together!Riley & Auntie Krissy Knitting

My nephew Garret informed me his slippers are too small. He needs new ones that will fit his feet! Adding that to the Christmas knitting list.

On a Happy Note

Couch to 5k Running Progress: I’m currently on Week 8. I’m running 25-28 minutes at a time- still can’t believe it. I find I do better when I run every 2-3 days instead of taking off 4-5 days in between runs.

Stitch Fix: for the first time I kept all 5 items. I found that my stylist really incorporated all of  the feedback I gave from previous shipments and it paid off! More details to follow in an upcoming blog post. If you’re interested in trying it out, please consider using my referral code.
