Screwed up the Tanwen scarf again There’s a garter stitch section and I purled it on the back instead of knit. Twice. Dropped down 6 rows for one, other was 4 inches [10cm] down – I’m going to duplicate stitch over it
In the Garden
Deck coming together – tomatoes, peppers, basil and flowers. Had “helpers” Took twice as long but they had fun
Also, got chamomile, cilantro and basil seedlingds in the herb garden
Planted cucumber and watermelon seedlings in the garden
On the Run
Finally got to progress past half a mile! Unfortunately I’ve had pain in my foot and Achilles tendon. Gonna talk to my physical therapist about it tomorrow. Fingers crossed it’s nothing major. I want to run!
