Keep Moving

My only dedicated activities these days are walking and knitting. In the past 3 weeks I think I’ve walked less than 10,000 steps on only 3 days. DB and I try to walk at 6:30 every morning and since we’ve changed to daylight savings time, it’s still dark when we leave the house. Sometimes we get to see a nice sunrise. Sometimes it’s too cloudy. Every morning the birdsong is becoming louder and more varied. Since this is a coastal town we get city birds and sea birds. It’s so nice to hear them in the mornings!

 Above is the little video I took this morning on the dike.

I’m posting photos on Instagram every day so if you want to see more photos I’ve taken on walks, with birds, ducks, scenes from the dike and beaches, check out my Insta feed.

In knitting news, I’ve passed the armholes on my Foldlines sweater and am working on the front. I’m going to lower the neckline by 1”/2.5cm as I really don’t like sweaters touching my neck. I’m sweating running out of yarn! I was saving 2 skeins for the sleeves but I will definitely have to start using one of those skeins soon. This is a really boxy sweater so the sleeves will be more like T-Rex arms so I should be ok. I hope! I’ll post a new photo when I’ve finished the front.

I’m also knitting a second sweater, “Stern” pattern, using West Wool Bicycle. I’m still working on the patterning around the yoke. I work on this when I get sick of knitting on the Foldlines sweater. It will be really good TV knitting once I’m finished with the yoke and it’s only Stockinette on 3mm needles forever and ever. I’ll post a photo of this also this weekend.

Stay tuned, stay safe, stay home.
