Also, sigh, I seem to have really tweaked my shoulder, which has put the kibosh on my swimming challenge. We've gone kayaking twice this month, and that, plus the yardage I have managed to get done, plus my feeble attempts at the Cross Fit-esque workouts for my OTHER challenge have seemed to have really done a number on my right shoulder. Basically whenever I do anything requiring shoulder movement, it hurts. I figure I'll give it another week and then I'll go to the doctor.
Anyway, in lieu of challenge updates, I will post pictures of my knitting works in progress because that's what I've been doing this month.
A couple of gift sweaters I'm working on using Techniques! (multi-colored knitting and cables, specifically):
And here's the hat I'm making with my new Yarnbox yarn, with a lovely cabled brim, since I lost my winter hat last year and need a new one anyway:
I'm also going to make a cowl to match the hat.
