Wish Me Luck?

Last night I was knitting away on the second Rogue sleeve when I noticed something alarming…



Not much left. I’m about to begin the decreases/bind offs for the sleeve cap, so there’s a good chance I’ll make it, but there’s also a decent chance I wont.

It’s a silly little superstition, but I believe that each person only gets a certain amount of luck. Not over the course of a lifetime, that’s too dreary to contemplate, but more like a weekly allowance. Lets say a 100 yard skein of luck is allotted to each person at the beginning of the week. For me, this has been a pretty good week. My cold went away, good things happened in office-land, and I didn’t drop anything on my toes. I feel like maybe I’ve used up a fair bit of my luck skein already. So there is NO WAY I’m using up those last few yards of luck on some cheap black Cascade 220.

Not when tomorrow is …



MARATHON DAY!!!

GOOD LUCK!!! Have so much fun - enjoy the crowds, high five the kids on the side of the road, talk to the cute guy running next to you, and make sure you're smiling when you cross the finish line or else your finisher's photo will look silly. My finish line photo from Ironman is horrible b/c I kinda got hung up on the tape and I look like Martin Short doing one of his goofy characters on SNL (can't remember the name, but the one with the pants pulled up way high).

Anyway, good luck and enjoy yourself! I'll be thinking about you tomorrow!
