I finished the orange heeled socks, they are brothers not twins, the heels are padded for wearing with boots. Not to my taste but then they are not for me. Another pair has been ordered but have to take their place on the list.
I cast on another for Francesca in this Heart & Sole from Sirdar, these will be twins with afterthought heels in a solid pink.
I am not sure where my mind has been for the last few days, I lost track of what day it was mid week and it has been downhill all the way.
This morning I finally caught up and know that it is Saturday. I blame the weather, we have had a day of almost summer followed by winter, spring and then winter again. Most disconcerting.
One of my Rhubarb plants has thrown in the towel and started to run to seed. Fingers crossed that no more follow suit.
I am having a short break from knitting, not by choice I hasten to add, my left elbow is painful and I want to rest it. Now that is back to front, when I knit I hold my in one position with the elbow bent.
What I need to do for a day or so is to keep it moving, my first attempt will be "doing out" the kitchen cupboards. They are not in dire need but an extra tidy and wipe out never goes amiss. It has been on the radar for a few days, I have already changed things around to clear my work tops. Now I will take the time to fully organise them all.
Today is warmish and damp with the odd blast of cold wind coming of the Morriston mountain. I have a little hand washing but not enough to worry about, it can wait a while.
Last nights dinner was a fast fix, I had some sauce left from the squash and coconut curry so used that up. I just rough diced onion, peppers, garlic and finely diced some fresh ginger, sweated it all in coconut oil added some butter beans and the left over sauce. It was lovely and very filling, I had to wait a good while before I could make my mint tea.
I have to dash now, a quick trip to have a small job done on the car.
The time has flown by this morning.
