It was a pretty great weekend!
Friday night I stayed home and knit.
Saturday morning I picked my mom up and we tackled my spare room. I wanted to lay down one of my bookcases so I could set up my swift and winder. I thought it would take forever, but it really didn’t. I am so happy with how it turned out! Next trip I think we’ll tackle my closet because it really needs help!
After having very yummy ice cream with my mom I dropped her off for the BBQ she was going to. Dennis picked me up and we went and did a 20km bike ride out on the local dykes. It was a perfect day for it and not too busy which I liked. I still have trouble with my gears so rarely get up a hill successfully, but I feel like it goes better every time I go out. This time it might have been because Dennis put more air in my tires🤣
After the ride we stopped for Starbucks and I actually had a free drink so that was nice.
I spent the rest of the night knitting on my Kith shawl and I actually managed to finish it.
This is a super easy pattern by Justyna Lorkowska. I did it in Knit Picks Stroll Fingering in Cobblestone Heather, Dove Heather and Sprinkle Heather. I love this yarn as it is so soft!!!!
Sunday started off with my usual run. Sarah came out and did the first 3.5km with me and then I carried on to 5km by myself. It was so hot!!! We started at 7:30 am but it was still super hot in the sun. Dennis and I managed 10.15km,but it was tough. My heart rate was high, but I’m assuming it was because of the heat.
I picked my mom up again and she helped me block my test shawl. I finally gave in and went and bought blocking wires. I didn’t love having to put the wires in, but if it gives me straight sides, I’ll forget how bad it was!
While my mom went out for dinner with my aunt and uncle I got busy on my Fernwood Raglan which is a test knit for Alicia Plummer. I am starting to worry already that I won’t have enough yarn:(
I also got my FitOn class done each day. Saturday was yoga and today was a Pilates class.
Well that’s it for me. It has been awesome having my mom here! I even just like having her at the other end of the couch for company- we don’t have to do anything exciting! I already miss her as she and my dad are off to the island early tomorrow morning:(
