A quiet day, but I did get some stuff done, though nothing important.
I obviously need to figure out which titles I have used before. Does anyone have a good system for keeping track?
My walk today went much more smoothly. I tried running and that still hurt, so I was smart for a change and just walked. Hopefully tomorrow I’ll be able to get back to running. Squad Runner drove me nuts again as it didn’t give me any points so yet again I have had to email the support team. It’s enough to put me off running for this team!!!
I was going a little nuts with wanting to work out, but figured I probably shouldn’t as I’m supposed to work out with L tomorrow. I don’t want to hurt myself before then! I came up with a good compromise though and did an ab workout.
20 double foot drops
30 toe touches
50 I don’t remember:(
60 butterfly crunches
70 heel touches
80 reverse crunches
90 static crunch with scissor feet
100 twisted mountain climbers
I should probably be doing this workout a lot more often!!!
I spent much of today knitting and finishing off my headband. I really didn’t want to face another day of those charts and also I wanted it to count for the Charms class in HPKCHC on Ravelry.
My mom had the good idea that I should have photocopied the pattern and colour coded it. I was actually eleven rows from the end when I finally remembered what one of the symbols meant🤦🏼♀️😫
It worked out fine though I’m not completely happy that the edging is not even on both sides so the headband doesn’t look symmetrical. Since it’s just for me running in the winter, I won’t take it apart, but if I make another I would be sure to make the edging equal! I would also use a heavier weight of yarn if I make it again, but it did do what I wanted (used up the end of the ball of yarn).
This pattern was from my 60 Quick Knits using Cascade yarn. Since I used my book, it means I don’t have to feel guilty buying knitting books because I obviously use them🤣
I have thankfully finished another book today, Chasing Christmas Eve by Jill Shalvis. I was starting to get worried that I had lost my reading mojo.
It took me a bit to get into this book but that may be due to the fact I had read the rest of the series a while ago.
Once again, I really liked the supporting cast of friends. Shalvis does a great job of incorporating a variety of characters and making them realistic and believable. She does such a good job that I disliked Elle for most of this book!
I also liked how the main characters changed realistically. Colbie learns to not do everything for others and Spence learns balance. It isn’t instantaneous which just makes these lessons more believable.
The Christmas theme isn’t so grand that you can’t enjoy this book at other times of the year thankfully.
I would recommend the book for anyone who is looking for a strong series or who enjoys reading about the artistic type.
Well I’m going to start my next rug square and watch a movie.
