It was an absolutely awesome day!

Exercise:

I got out this morning for my run but was so focused on making the 4km I needed to do for my yearly goal that I forgot the Squad Runner mission was 45 minutes. I did do another forty five minutes later on, but grrrrr!

I also got out for a bike ride along the Pitt River Greenway with my co-teacher Liane. We must really be friends to spend time on our holidays together!

It was an absolutely beautiful day for a ride, though I have to admit I really need to look into a new bike seat!!

After biking we headed to a cute little bookstore and gift shop called Tomes and Tales. I hadn’t been back since I went with Liane last summer, and it was just as lovely. I managed to restrain myself and only bought a cookbook🤣

Everything in this book looks good! I want to make it all!!!!

Eating:

After this it was off to find lunch. We went to a restaurant I’ve been wanting to go to for a while called The Big Feast. It was so good and so many options for me that I just couldn’t make up my mind! I ended up having the lamb sausage hash. I was supposed to only eat half of it and bring the other half home, but I ate it all😳

Knitting:

Since coming home I have spent the evening knitting. My sweater has finished blocking.

I am super happy with it and it is a completely recycled sweater. The yarn used to be my grandma’s penguin sweater and the pattern was from my grandma as well. It is a red heart label pattern and I did the kids size 6 and it fits great! I like the length as it will be good with skinny jeans in the winter.

I have started my newest project which is a test knit for Carolyn Day for the April Tank Top. I had bought Cascade Heritage Prints yarn to do it in, but am not super happy with it. I really wanted a cream or white background with flecks of pink, purple or turquoise. If anyone can suggest a yarn, I’d love to hear it!!

Well I’m going to go curl into bed and read.

Have fun!

    1. Yes now I want to start making from it, but I need to finish off the other cookbook first.
      Thanks! I’m happy with how it turned out:)

    1. Oh yes, a lot of my sweaters are made from recycled yarn as my grandma was a prolific knitter but we didn’t know what else to do with her sweaters.
