When I was home, sitting quietly, I got up, didn't realize the yarn was tangled 'round my foot, and tore out the biggest part of the Tardis... the lace part. After some very unlady-like language, I tried to repair it. No dice, I am going to have to start over. So I checked with Team Sherlocked on the rules for Power Screw Ups, and they said, just go on, and get things done!
Ergo, here is "Daydreams of Sherlock". It is nearly half finished. I hope with a bit of luck to get it finished before the flame is extinguished! (And maybe a lemon, too, but that's another project. If you don't know what the lemon is about, see here, under "Qikiqtarjuaq".)
When finished, this will have a fringe, and I intend to have some beads, but for now, the knit is on! Or afoot! Whatever, I am gonna still be power knitting... And hopefully not tangling up in yarn again...
In other news, I have been walking again. Husband has pretty much asked me not to go on the hill, except during dry weather (right now counts...), unless I have my phone, and he'd really prefer I go up on the 4 wheeler. So, I walk on the road in front of our house. I have gone from .5 of a mile, when I first started (remember, I was "learning" to walk after my broken leg, and building up stamina again), to today's marker.
I WALKED 4 MILES TODAY!
I think I have been doing this for... I would have to check, but school was still in session, so April? May? So, that part is good. What isn't so good, I've not lost much weight. I was grumbling about this, when Husband, in his very delicate way (I am not being sarcastic), said that he'd noticed I was eating more, maybe my appetite had increased with the increase of exercise? I didn't know, and said, when was I eating more. He mentioned several recent meals where he had x, I had x, plus a sandwich, or an extra slice of cheese, or some such.
So, I gave him permission to be the (very POLITE) Food Police, and point out if I am scarfing food down more like a starving teen than a dieting... not-a-teen. He has been pretty good about it, actually asking if I want some tea when I say I am hungry. (No, but I do get the tea. Let's face it, tea doesn't add to the waistline...) So, with tea, and extra walking, I lost 2 pounds last week. Now hopefully I can lower that, and get back to where I was before the stupid broken leg.
More news, further down the scarf...
