This is where you will find me, on Saturday mornings with my cardio group. I'm part of a free running group which is open to anyone and everyone. Every Saturday, we meet up and run together wether it's hot or extremely cold. BRRRRR....It's only 24 degrees outside.

Look cloesly at hte picture...I'm one of the few ladies who doesn't have a some type of ear covering. I still couldn't believe how fast the weather can change around here. I decided no more cold ears for me. Why not try to knit up a headband. I was really jealous of all of my friends headbands. Nothing like running with numb ears. So, if you scroll down you will find the pattern and pictures of the finally project.

Plus, I'm going to knit up a couple more headband to give away as xmas gifts for my running friends.
