Small steps

After several rubbish months of injury I've tentatively resumed training for my first marathon. This week I managed 40 minutes for my longest run, covering all of 6km. A far cry from what I could do last August (inlcuding a lovely 14 miles along the Tarka Trail!) but I keep reminding myself that 8 weeks ago I couldn't run a step. Literally and metaphorically I have to take small steps.

This year I intend to get serious with knitting but also to know my limits and stay away from sensible projects.  Scarves are fine as long as the yarn is daft, but I have a project in mind that involves knitted slugs...
