Right, now I've sweetened you up, I'll direct you over to my friend Lilith's blog because she is running the Cancer Research Race for Life in memory of her late dad who died in 2001.
She has set up a special blog to chart her progress and to raise funds for the cause. As well as a link to the donation page, you'll also find some other interesting links about the event and the charity.
Not only can you donate to a great charity, you can be in with a chance to win some of the lovely prizes up for grabs.
Share the love......and the cash!

In the meantime I can show you some photos of a scarf I finished for J in January.
It has been finished for a couple of weeks but the weather has been a bit too wild to try to photograph it in the daylight. Even in these shots you can see it has been anchored down by some pretty hefty stones.
This was a nice easy knit and the colour-changes made it just interesting enough. 20 rows Twilleys Freedom Spirit, 18 Sirdar Peru, 16 Twilleys etc.
The whole middle third was done in the Twilleys 513 which is a variegated turquoise colour.
I don't think I'll be rushing to use the Sirdar Peru again, but I've continued to enjoy the Twilleys on this project.
In other news, I've been trying to do a major clear-out and tidy up. I've got lots of lovely things at home and I want to be able to reach them to enjoy them, so if I don't know it to be useful or believe it to be beautiful (includes sentimental appeal) it has to go. Five bin bags to charity this weekend and still plenty ahead to tackle.
Happy Knitting. x K
