It wasn't till I picked my knitting up to finish the second slipper sock that it really began to ache.
So knitting put away for a couple of days.
After dinner I pulled my crochet basket out and decided to start making 7 round Granny squares. Nothing in mind yet, just a vague thought of soft blues and cream with maybe a touch of soft pale green. That would be an excellent gift for L.
2 squares in one of the tendons began to pull so that was put into hibernation.
Today will be a sewing sort of day, it was pencilled in for my second wall hanging to be quilted anyway.
My only problem is the evening, how will I get through with nothing to keep my hands busy.
Then I had a little ray of light.
My long neglected peg loom. I have a basket brimming over with oddments of yarn, smooth, lumpy and bumpy, textured and furry. All of these have been waiting for a weaving project. What about a wall hanging? Not a shabby idea. So, later on the SO will help me to get it all set up.

Dinner last night was very tasty, just not worthy of a photo, a chicken steak marinated and then coated with a spicy mix served with a jacket potato and steamed Kale.
Some of that may have been not quite the truth, I may have been so hungry that as the last morsel was scraped off the plate I realised that no photo had been taken.
Tonight we are having the remnants of the beef casserole with pasta and cabbage. green veg are wonderful to replace pasta but I feel the need for carbs. Well I will do after we spend some time in the garden, there is a little bit of tidying up to do.
Then sewing for the rest of the day. It sounds sedentary but I keep the ironing board as far away from the sewing machine as possible. That means that I do clock up a surprising amount of steps. As well as quilting I have some piecing to do and that involves lots and lots of pressing.
On that note I am signing off,it will soon be time to walk Rufus and Herbie and I still have the bed to make. I like to leave it thrown open for a few hours before making it.
