Number of days without knitting: 14
(Non) knitter's mood: tetchy! The Tour de Fleece began yesterday and it's the first year since I have been spinning that I haven't been able to take part.
I'm sad to say that there has been no change to my wrist, despite wearing the splint religiously. I have an x-ray this week, so hopefully that will show up if there are any underlying joint issues. Thank you to everyone who suggested books for me to read. I have been reading more this week, and Mr JK and I have been enjoying extended evenings in the garden thanks to the gorgeous weather. A friend on Ravelry suggested that I get a colouring book for grown ups so that I can do something creative. Who knew that such a thing existed?! I browsed several on Amazon and eventually picked one up in Sainsbury's on Friday. I am going to have a play around a little later today. I found my pencil crayons and put them in a new home - a fun tin from my dear friend Snoopydog - and I will let you know how my new hobby develops!
Despite my frustrations at not being able to do anything yarny, there have been some good times this week.
*** homemade chocolate chip cookies and frothy coffee in the garden ***
*** Watching Flo find a shady spot outside ***
*** Our first strawberry! ***
*** An unexpected gift from a Ravelry friend ***
*** Meeting up with Snoopydog to celebrate her birthday! ***
*** A bunch of cheap and cheerful Sweet Williams to brighten the house ***
*** The French beans having a race to get to the top of the cane! ***
(I seriously cannot get over just how fast these guys grow.)
*** Lavender in full bloom ***
Have a good week. I'm off to sharpen my crayons as I'm itching to get colouring! xxx
