Sock it to me Monday – whatever number we’re up to

Well today is already A Day. I just found out I’m going to be made redundant for the second time in as many years. It’s enough to give a girl a complex.

The good news is I finished my million step challenge on Saturday, four days earlier than scheduled, because I wanted to finish in one of my favourite places and with the boyfriend (he works weekdays now).

That’s my victory pose when I realised I’d made it. Which I have to tell you here because apparently photo captions aren’t a thing any more -_-

My feet and legs are still a bit sore today, but I know it was worth it to raise some money for Diabetes UK .

If anyone is feeling particularly generous and wants to sponsor someone they’ve never met in real life (and cheer me up a bit), you can find my page here.

Thanks to the 20,000+ steps each day last week, there’s not a great deal of sock progress to show. I’m just beginning the toe on my second Hermione sock, and have only done a few rows on the Diagon Ally pair. Cue I-just-found-out-I’m-losing-my-job-quality photos:

So that’s me.

Walking WIP Thursday

Current WIP count: 7

Man I wish I’d got this written for yesterday. You can never have too much alliteration!

I don’t think I’ve mentioned before that I’m doing a sponsored walking challenge to raise money for Diabetes UK – the aim is to walk one million steps between July 1st and September 30th. This averages out to 10,870 steps per day, which at my pace takes just under two hours.

You wouldn’t think two hours could have that much impact on my day, especially considering I’m still furloughed, but for various reasons it’s really cutting into my crafting time.

So the only logical solution is to knit while I’m walking, isn’t it!

No action shot, as it’s really hard to walk and knit and take a photo at the same time, but here’s a progress shot instead.

Today I managed to knit 6 rows on my socks without walking into any lamp posts/bins/other people – success!
