Hopefully we’re one down and one to go; but staying (mostly) inside and off my feet still made for a pretty sweet weekend.
Marc got us off to a great start Friday night with snacks and the first two episodes of Yellowstone. One of his golfing buddies had talked about the show and said it was like Longmire, except with Kevin Costner. I’ll say it’s more like Dallas, except with Kevin Costner, a little more violence and awesome Montana scenery. Highly recommend!
Saturday morning I finished up my second Esme Top/Owyn Shorts ensemble.
I used the linen leftover from last spring’s aborted Daily Stitching exercise (meaning this was a “free” outfit except for the elastic in the waistband). The linen is on the heavy side, so I wanted more ease in the top; I made the Small and I’m pleased with the fit. I also used the bell-sleeve hack that Lakes Makerie shared on their blog and wow! And I tweaked the shorts – used the crotch lines from the Small and the X-Small for the rest and added 2″ to the length. The fit is perfect! (now I need to make pajama pants with the pattern 🙂 )
Yesterday morning, I ventured out for the first time … to church.
It felt good to be out, especially there. We had our monthly Women’s Ministry meeting (this was my first time Moderating the entire meeting) afterwards and I’m not sure if it was the outing, or the meeting, or both, but I needed a long nap when I got home!
In between all that, I traded messages with Lori Versaci on Instagram and started testing her new pullover pattern.
The gauge in stockinette is 26 stitches over 4 inches … which means a size 2-1/2 needle for me. Good thing I have a bit of time right now (and really good thing I have a few sweater quantities of yarn in my stash – this is Plucky Knitter Crewbie in the Naragansett Gray colorway).
Holly has adjusted rather well to the slower pace. Here she is Saturday afternoon posing for Sara.
My Apple Watch, on the other hand, is very confused. Just for kicks, I’ve been snagging my daily exercise summaries before I take my watch off each night.
Standing is no problem, but moving and exercising are just not happening (although I do think carrying this boot around should count for more; it certainly feels heavier than two pounds!) Still, my watch is cheering me on. Every morning it sends me this message
… I wonder if it will just give up at some point?! (I hope not … at least not yet!)
I hope you enjoyed your weekend, too! Here’s to good week!
