Handmade Knit Scarves

I have been a busy busy bee knitting lately and thought I would share some of my recent scarves with all of you. Work has been closed most of this past week and I didn't feel like playing video games so I watched a whole lot of Netflix and did a whole lot of knitting!!

If you love any of these you can visit my etsy store where they are listed. I also make custom requested items so if you see a pattern you love just shoot it on over to me and I can knit it for you :-)

Day 1 - Bay to Breakers 2012 Training

My new year's resolution is to run Bay to Breakers 2012. I don't just mean complete it, I mean run the entire way without walking. It is a 12k run, or about 7.5 miles, in San Francisco and people go all out for this event. Some people run it nude (not me) and some dress up in wild costumes and there are even floats! I plan on dressing up in something but nothing too wild, I want to be comfortable running and something outrageous might not be comfy enough. I might just make a tshirt that says " I play WoW, Can you Catch Me?" or something catchy that relates to my gaming (ideas are welcome here!).

I have never trained for a marathon before so this is going to be a new experience. After this morning, I'm a little bit shocked at just how little running I could actually do. I ran and walked for a total of 3 miles and ran for short bursts of about a quarter mile each because I really couldn't run any longer than that. I didn't think I was that out of shape since I've been doing my P90X2 videos and have been feeling pretty strong during those. So I'm a bit disheartened but hey, I have to start somewhere right?! Tomorrow is a new day and hopefully one where I can run for half a mile without getting too winded :-)

In other news, I have some new scarves up on Etsy and am still looking for my first sale! I will be posting a scarf and beanie package later this week once it is all finished so go check it all out <3 Here is the link SaraMarie Creations

And enjoy a few more Bay to Breaker photos that I grabbed off of Google!

Blizzcon 2011 Recap and Swag Bag Contents

In short, Blizzcon 2011 was AWESOME! Foo Fighters was the icing on the cake. Swag bag was a step up from last year (although no beta keys) and there were some great announcements for the upcoming World of Warcraft expansion, Diablo 3 and Starcraft 2 Heart of the Swarm.

While walking over to the convention center to pick up our swag bags, we encountered some other Blizzcon attendees who had already gotten their swag bags. They got our hopes up by saying there were Diablo 3 Beta Keys inside, but really there weren't! The contents were quite similar to last year's only the statue is higher quality and looks very neat.

We got of course a Starcraft 2 portrait as well as Murkablo for World of Warcraft. Also included in the swag bag was a pack of trading cards, a new authenticator, Mega Blocs Thrall figurine, and a sweet ass Tyrael statue!

New purple knit scarf!

Another scarf that I finished recently. This one was just straight knitting with size US 12 needles. I got the yarn from Michaels during the huge black friday sale and I love it! I have some extra so I might make another scarf just like this one :)
