Another bright and beautiful day. 2486 steps – down on yesterday. (I did reach 3000 by bedtime; I won’t attempt it this evening.) (The watering yesterday was successful, Shandy. Thank you for your concern. I won’t attempt that this evening either.)


I’m slightly further forward with wee Hamish’s vest. Are my hands losing their skill? or at any rate, their enthusiasm? Perhaps it’s time to employ a tape measure. What gauge am I actually getting? What will the circumference be? How much further to the underarms? And I could hunt up some more podcasts to knit to – I’m getting sort of tired of “Sit and Knit for a Bit with Arne and Carlos”.


I’m a bit further forward with “I Vicere”, too. Stashdragon (comment yesterday), it would be great fun to have you reading it at the same time. I seem to have been reading it forever, and yet am only 1/3rd of the way through.


Helen and her friend are safely back from Kirkmichael, where all is well.

    Congratulations on achieving 3000 steps! Of course you feel a bit worn afterward. It's like walking over half a mile.
    New podcasts should help.

    Jean, have you tried a podcast called 'The Meaningful Stitch', hosted by Amy Palko. She is also living in Edinburgh, and I find her lovely to listen and knit with.

  3. Jean, I don't know if you used to enjoy Brenda Dayne's podcast Cast On, but she is back! I'm really enjoying it again, and I've been knitting to it recently.
