Santas let loose in Burlington

Okay, since my photos of me in my Santa outfit before the Santa Jingle race I entered Dec.13 are not yet available (not on a digital camera), I will treat you with this mini shot of all 1500 Santas starting the race. This race was not a personal best for me, I think I will blame it on the freezing cold weather down by Lake Ontario, running in Santa pants and all those jingle bells on the shoes jingling along. It was a crazy race.

I promised to show pics of my favourite petal/flower dishcloths before wrapping them up for friends for Christmas. However, I was in such a rush that completely forgot to take the pics. Duh! So, to make up for my oversight, I will provide links to those faves instead, I love making them and hope you try them out too:

December already?!

I know, I know, it's been awhile. I've been knitting, honest! And to prove it, here's a tidbit of a sock I'm giving as a present, soooo, shhhhhh. I'm working on washcloths too for gifts and will take a pic of all together when I'm done. They are very pretty and all are from free patterns that designers generously share on the internet.

I've also been busy training for running races. This past October 19th I clocked my best time ever for a 5k, 27min 4sec. This coming weekend, I will be in the Santa Jingle 5k race in Burlington, Ontario. I highly doubt my time will be as fast, the catch is, we all have to wear Santa Suits. Can you imagine 1500 Santas racing through the streets? I'm looking forward to the fun.
