Almost human again

Yesterday was a real struggle, but after some perseverance, I did manage to complete knitting the back of the jacket. I got as far as casting on for the left front, but couldn't face doing anymore. I didn't even work on my Lakeland tapestry, so I'll have to catch up on that this week.

We have had a busy day here today, but this evening when I sat down to knit, I realised I felt completely different. It was quite a joy to be sat knitting. The joy was made even greater when my son sat with me for an hour doing his cross stitch cushion. As you can see from the photo, I have managed to get almost halfway up to the armhole shaping on the left front.

I have decided I am not going to put pockets in, so it will be a straightforward knit for the fronts.

I am hoping the almost human feeling improves and I can enjoy some knitting again tomorrow.
