I have been knitting, I'm making Emilia 'Linnet' from The Rowan Storybook of Little Knits. She chose the pattern and I am enjoying making it. I'm starting a love affair with Rowan's Kid Silk Haze, oh help!
Fancy joining me for the 10,000 step weight loss challenge? Apparently if you walk 10,000 steps a day you burn off 1lb of body fat a week! Get yourself a pedometer and join me :) I'll log today's steps tomorrow.
Have a great evening and I'll see you all again tomorrow
My total steps yesterday was 8558, which equates to 2.553 miles. I've already done 6679 steps today and it is only 10 O'clock! I have been for a walk around the park for about 1/2 hour, really enjoyable looking at the cyan blue sky and the burnished gold leaves of the Horse Chestnut trees. I feel energised :)
