Hello Fellow Crafters!
I am already on my second cup of tea of tea of the day, sitting in one of my favorite spots with one of my many knitting projects.
Even though it is turning out to be a beautiful day, I am stuck inside trying to get over my third cold of the year.
At least it hit now, rather than later in the month. While no time is really convenient for being sick, as long as it doesn’t get worse, I will still be able to follow through on plans I have a little later in the month.
I also want to get a couple hikes in before Oregon and Washington spring breaks occur. Oregon spring break is the last week of March and Washington spring break is the first week of April. Why do I care about spring breaks when I am not in school and don’t have kids in school? Spring break = more people to have to contend with where I want to go Hiking.
This is also a good week to be sick in terms of hiking because the weather is supposed to be better next week for hiking and I am waiting on a few things to arrive, for my new hiking boots to help protect them / help them to break in a little faster and to help make them a little more comfortable.
I am also waiting on some essential oils I ordered to arrive, I got ones to help support immune health (ie help you when you are sick and from getting sick) another to help to help with allergies and one to help with stress.
Like I mentioned previously, I am on my second cup of tea of the day. I had a cup of English Breakfast Tea earlier, and now I am enjoying a cup of Green & White Fusion tea.
This afternoon my goal is to get the cuff of the sock I am currently working on done and move on the preparing for the heel flap. I have the first sock of this pair done, and I am working on the second one. I am using KnitPicks Stroll Tweed in Marine Heather. It is similar to the Marine Heather Wool of the Andes, but it is a bit brighter and more blue, where as the Wool of the Andes is a bit duller. I am also currently using the Marine Heather Wool of the Andes to knit up a shawl, so I am able to do a side by side comparison of the colors.
While I am knitting I am catching up on a few YouTube videos followed by watching “Call the Midwife”.
