This has been a disappointing week .......... the main reason being is that I started with a really nasty cold and have felt under the weather all week.
I haven't been out for a run since Tuesday, and this was such a struggle trying to breathe that I cut it shorter than usual ...... disappointed!
I've had the knitting out but although I've managed to knit the two sleeves for my cherry cardigan I really haven't felt up to blocking and sewing it all together...... disappointed!
( Some knitters I know always feel that the sewing up is the quick job at the end, but I think that it is one of the most important aspects of the whole project. Blocking the individual pieces really helps the overall appearance of the garment and ensures that it fits together perfectly. Shoddy seaming is one of my pet hates, so I spend a lot of effort neatly seaming. So this week I really did feel that my concentration wasn't 100% so I didn't attempt any sewing up as I didn't want to ruin the cardigan just to get it finished in a rush.)
I bought some daffodils for Easter a couple of days ago to cheer me up, they were tightly budded and were displayed in a bucket with a picture of beautiful golden daffodils. Unfortunately they opened up to be a white frilly type of narcissus, which many people would love, but I wanted simple golden daffodils, cheery yellow daffodils, smiley nodding daffodils ....... disappointed!
Hope you all have a lovely Easter weekend, I'm hoping to get over this cold so that by Tuesday I'll be back out running as I have a 10k race next Sunday 15th April, so I need to get fit again!
Goodbye for now.
