Fun Run and Accessories

A couple of knitters getting ready to run the 1/2 marathon!

What a fun and busy weekend here in Tofino!  With the Rip Curl surf competition and the Edge to Edge Marathon Tofino was buzzing!  I had the pleasure of meeting another knitter who was also running the 1/2 marathon!  We even discussed future knitting projects while waiting for the race to start that we could wear while running (leg warmers were the project we discussed)!

My favourite leg warmers...Romeo! Haha just had to add this photo in for fun!

I finished my first ever 1/2 marathon in the Edge to Edge this weekend which has been one of my goals!  Very excited to have that one done and I'm looking forward to attempting other 1/2 marathons in the future.  And a big thank you to all the amazing volunteers who helped make the marathon so fun.  So many amazing people handing out water, guiding runners and traffic as well as encouraging us along the way.  They really made the run so much more fun!  If you want to participate next year keep your eyes on this website.  With relay teams, 1/2 marathon and full marathon options there are lots of ways you can participate if you want!

Beautiful entrelac gloves that are in Knitscene Accessories.

AND speaking of accessories (well kinda...I mentioned leg warmers!) we just got in the Knitscene Accessories special issue.  This is a very popular one so be sure to come in and get it while you can!  Lots of fun little projects that you can take anywhere!
