I can haz winter?

I'm so over summertime. I refuse to go outside until I get so cabin-fevered that I take the dog for a 30-minute walk and we return and collapse in a heap, both of us panting, and I again vow to never leave the artificially cooled apartment. Repeat.

I've been really cranky lately and I know the heat has something to do with it. I really, really, really missing running. And I refuse to get up at 5 a.m. to run after going to bed at 1 a.m. I just can't do it. I'd get run over by a car, running while half asleep. So I guess I'll just have to substitute it with the gym, which is not the same (as much as I want it to be), until it gets to a more reasonable temperature circa September or October.

I've been knitting lots, though - on my brother's sock and on this:

loooove this sock

I love it so much. The colors are mesmerizing, I can't put it down. I'm a little worried about it being too tight - I cast on 68 stitches on a size 1 needles. We shall see. Socks on DPNs are so impossible to try on.


  1. Those colors are amazing!

    What about buying a treadmill? Would you run on that?

  2. I probably wouldn't run on a treadmill (not even at the gym) - I just feel like a hamster!
