Colons and Yarn

(just figured I'd make it easy for the freaky searchers)

The walk went very cold well. We weren't last, even after a potty break, although I still think they should have waited until everyone had crossed it before pulling up the finish line and cleaning up.

I'd say about half the people were walkers and half were runners. The route was a simple down and back, and we'd walked less than half a mile when the first runner passed us coming back. Fast guy!

Despite the very odd sites at the beginning of the walk,
like the giant inflatable colon, with polyps inside,
the warm-ups by large groups of people in matching clothes,
or just the over six-thousand participants,

there were a lot of really beautiful things we passed on the actual walk.

It was a good day.

And just to throw you all for a total loop, because I'm sure you don't think this ever happens around here anymore.....

the cable-spun mittens
a handspun Japanese vine hat,
and these obviously in-progress Schaeffer Anne socks that I started while watching Becoming Jane (the second time) yesterday.

They remind me of Johnny Jump Ups

Oh, great pictures! Now I'm homesick...cherry blossoms...sniff.

Congratulations on the walk, and a noble cause, though I do think I'd pass on the colon tour. ;-)

Lovely pictures!

I have done quite a few walks,but never had the end be taken up before the last walker,or runner has finished. I am glad that it was not to cold and you walked for a good cause and you should be proud.
I also like the pictures of the cherry blossoms and the colon.
