Begin knitting the commissioned shawl. One of the yarns has already arrived and I can get started on the first part of it before the second skein arrives.
Done. The second skein arrived last Monday, so there was no lag time or head start at all. I’m roughly halfway through it, maybe a little bit more – it’s hard to tell because I’m working on the longest section, which will end with around 400 live stitches. Bonus: it’s garter stitch, so while knitting, I finished the book I was reading (The Solitudes by John Crowley, 6th time reading it) and started another (The Chemical Wedding by Christian Rosencreutz by Johan Velentin Andraeae in a new version by John Crowley – lots of authors & a complicated explanation for that).
Spin for Tour de Fleece every day.
Done. I might even make it through this bump of Spunky Eclectic BFL and end up with a skein of yarn by the end of the Tour. Usually I spin much, much more and it’s hard to make myself spin and then, after I’ve gotten into it, rip myself away to work on the shawl. So it goes – I can always keep spinning long after the Tour has ended and the shawl is done.
Go to TKD even though I don’t want to, even though it’s going to be hot and the dojang doesn’t have AC, go even if Julia doesn’t go.I went Monday at 6:30 without Julia and Saturday morning, where we had a lovely time faux-hitting each other in one step sparring practice.
- Drink at least 3 Nalgene bottles of water each day (32oz) so I can handle the heat and TKD.
I didn’t keep track of this, but I also didn’t feel faint or ragingly thirsty at TKD or any other time for that matter, so I suppose my mission was accomplished.
- Carry on with the commissioned shawl.
- Spin for Tour de Fleece every day, even today, a rest day.
- Go to TKD.
- Stay hydrated.
- KISS. (Keep it simple, stupid/silly.)
