I have had my most productive day in a while. I even started 2 loads of laundry and put things away during the 8 minutes that my breakfast was cooking. Not one spot got cleaned, instead a whole lot of things got got trashed or moved to where they were supposed to be.
I was going to take a walk when I got frustrated by my new design. I am not sure how, but it is easier to walk, talk and knit this pattern than it is sitting down at a table with pen snd paper, writing the pattern as I go. There was just one little glitch. There was a coyote wandering around. I make it a point not to venture far when wild animals are roaming the streets. So I did the sensible thing and watered the new cactus we planted last weekend.
When I came back inside, I was a little more relaxed. I figured out it was not the written pattern that was the problem rather I did not count right when casting on yesterday. So I tinked it. Cast on again and everything is ok.
I picked up some wonderful salmon for dinner. It came out perfect. Nice and buttery. No, I did not use butter when I baked the salmon. I use the juice of one lemon, salt, white pepper and dill. I let it marinate a few hours. Add a bit of water before cooking. Bake at 350f for about 35 minutes. I buy enough to cook once and eat for 2 nights.
Charity knitting happened after dinner. The scarf that I am working on will take at least 7 skeins of yarn. It is called the Stash Dive Scarf by Summer Lee Designs.and is available on Raverly. This is number 4 with this pattern.
