I know that the next two days will probably be busy, so I was quite happy to enjoy a quiet day.
I spent the majority of the day knitting on my Bentley cardigan. I am back up to row 50 and so have 16 rows left before I separate for the sleeves again. Let’s hope for better sizing this time!
I also started a crochet blanket this evening. I’ve been feeling bad that I had no projects that used stash on the go. I had yellow acrylic that I know I will never use so I decided to see if I remembered how to crochet. It seems I do have some muscle memory. I chose a very simple pattern and so should be done in no time. I will probably just pass it along to my running buddy’s friend who crafts for the homeless. I’m sure someone could use it.
I did go out as I needed a longer 3mm needle for my sweater. There was no way I was doing the whole thing on a 16” needle! The yarn store was busy so I didn’t linger, but just grabbed the needles. I did look at the Laine 52 weeks of Socks book. It is a gorgeous book, but I will have to look more closely because it’s $70!
While I was out I tried the two new flavours of vegan ice cream at my favorite store. The apple pie and cherry cheesecake were wonderful, but this afternoon my stomach put in its request to go back to my usual healthy fare.
I did eat my ice cream at the park. My grandma used to take us to the park and we’d sit facing the water and have car picnics so that’s what I did today. It’s odd sometimes to think how much of my life is dictated by what my grandma did, it’s definitely the best part though!
I have tried to take it easy today to see if that contributes to the bottom of my left foot feeling better. I did do my FitOn workout though. I got smart and every time it buffered, I knit.🤣. At least my thirty minute workout only took 45 this time.
After working out I realized I hadn’t stitched at lunch time so I quickly sat down and did a little bit. I wish the same technique worked on my taxes as I need to get them done too. Usually I make my mom sit with me while I do them, but this year I’m on my own and am procrastinating big time!
Someone knocked on my door tonight. I hate when this happens, which thankfully it doesn’t happen often!
Well, I’m going to go crawl into bed and enjoy my book.

don’t you love how little things can trigger such a happy memory. I’m sure you felt calm and relaxed sitting there watching the water remembering your grandmother. sometimes that’s what we really need in life.
Have you tried taping the bottom of your foot? they suggest that for people with plantar fasciitis to relieve some of the tension.
It was a very peaceful moment:)
No I stayed off it more yesterday and it definitely wasn’t as sore. So far I’m trying to stretch out my calf to see if that helps
Car picnics – what we mainly did in the UK in my youth, often on a windy headland looking out at the grey sea!
Yup we supposedly have very similar weather to the UK. I had car picnics with my grandma and then when my nephew was young I would take him for car picnics
Sounds like a lovely day 🙂
