I find knitting so very relaxing, especially when reading or watching TV. Yes, I admit, it is hard for me to sit still and just stare at the television…. Knitting has become a great way to be productive while chilling on the couch.
Just like I stay sane while running on the treadmill by watching (or listening to) movies or iTunes U lectures. This January seems to be one of the coldest in Alaska for years – the official stats will be revealed soon, and we will know for sure. However, it has felt pretty darn cold! So cold that I have logged 20-30 miles on the treadmill on weekly basis this month. And it is a lot for someone who seriously dislikes long-distance treadmill training. But running in -20F weather is way too freezing even for an outdoorsy chick like me.
However, back to knitting. So thanks to encouragement on one of my knitting posts, I decided to do some customer projects. And here is my first custom-ordered headband ever…. delivered it to the client on Friday. She will also receive a matching pair of glittens, a combination of gloves and mittens. Stay tuned for the pictures! Of course I was so excited about getting the headband to hear that I forgot to take pictures at home, and was snapping a few while I was stopped at the traffic lights.
