Race for life - Battersea

I had a great evening last night. I joined Team IKnit London in the Race for Life at Battersea Park. Race for Life is a women's only race in aid of Cancer Research UK. There were about 15 of us all knitting and walking. I walked it in about 1 hour and managed to knit about 8" - we're knitting pink scarves for the Jenny Chant appeal to knit the longest scarf for the record books.

This is me at the finish line.This is some of us before the race.
