So far I am really loving the zauberballl yarn.  I finally got to the point when the color magic started really showing….  right around time for the heel of course.  So I got to wind up my whole ball to get at the center so I could make the heel with another strand.  Turns out the color I needed was very close to the end of the ball so I decided to line up all the colors nicely.  I’m very happy with how the pattern is turning out.  Because of the strong lines I went with a flap heel and simply could not resist making the pattern flow over the heel:


This sock is making me happy so it is flying off the needles.  Hopefully I’ll be able to work out the colors this nicely for the second sock!  I’ll know better when I get to the end of the first and see how much spare yarn I have…


SF AIDS Marathon 2008

On August 3, myself and about 500 other runners will complete the San Francisco marathon in an effort to raise $1,000,000 for the San Francisco AIDS Foundation. This is the culmination of nearly 2 years of lifestyle changes and weight loss for me, and a chance for me to use my new-found energy and fitness to give back to my community. I hope you will join me in this effort by reading and offering your support through my blog. If you are able, I also welcome your contribution to the cause! Thanks and keep on running!

Progress Bar:

Marathon time: 5:40:22
Total Raised: $2,815.70
