The Pinup Queen sweater has stalled – I haven’t picked up the needles in at least 3 or 4 days. I started on the sleeves – thought I’d do them both at the same time – but after a few rows, I put it down, and it stayed down!
I don’t think I’ll do any tonight as we have Fellowship of the Ring to watch (never seen the Lord of the Rings movies before) and I can’t really knit and watch at the same time or I’ll mess up my sleeves. Tomorrow will be busy – have to take the car in to get the winter tires changed over to the all-season ones. Then I have to do my Monday housework. Then it’s Taekwondo in the evening. No knitting time there.
Tai Chi Man and I had a long walk this afternoon at a nearby park. It only takes about 10 minutes to get to the edge of the park, then there are various trails one can take to vary the length and route. We walked the whole length which made for a lot of uphills and downhills. It was perfect weather for it though – mild and mostly sunny and calm.
These flowers are everywhere at this time of year. Some call them Spring Sunflowers but their more correct term is Balsamroot. I believe the First Nations people used to use the root for medicinal purposes.
It was just the right temperature for a short-sleeved shirt and my garter stitch vest.
Edited to add: I nearly forgot to mention…we saw Jurassic Park last night. The library has a huge collection of feature films now. Can you believe that’s the first time we’ve seen it? It came out in 1993, for crying out loud!
