Erika ran the Chicago Marathon today! She made it quite far into the run before the organizers shut it down due to the heat, and the fact that people were falling over left and right. Our girl stayed on her feet the whole time despite record temperatures and was in good spirits tonight when she called. I’m glad she did, because, well, after seeing the news report on CNN, I was worried. No need to fret about that mom-of-three, though, her superpowers kicked in and she stayed safe.

In un-dangerous news, I only need to finish the thumb on my mitten. This means that the weaving-in approaches, and also that I need to cast on another mitten, not jump excitedly into the glove project.

Three cheers for Erika!
And keep Strikke-ing……
