Still too warm to wear wool socks but I am sure the next Winter will come eventually. 😂

The pattern is called 'New Beginnings', the yarn is LB Mandala Bonus Bundle in colorway Sasquatch. It is a bit of a yarn eater (a bit over 4000 yards) but it is big and heavy and will keep me warm this Winter (probably the kitties too). I love it.

I finished 3 crochet blankets in the past few months. The green-brown one is called 'Phoenix' and I actually started it in 2019 but then life got in the way and it went into hibernation. The other two I started this year, the rainbow colored one is called 'Doo-Dad' and the purple-yellow one is 'Whatcha-ma-call-it'. All three are patterns by Vanessa from 'Hooked on Sunshine'.

My baking mojo is coming back! Yesterday I baked bread for the first time since Day X and for the first time ever I used sourdough starter (my new - rather demanding - pet). It is a little pale but it tastes very good and has a nice texture.
I bought myself some lovely yarn and cast on a spring cardigan. The yarn is very nice to work with and the pattern is uncomplicated and perfect for knitting while binge watching 'Call the Midwife'.
I have a busy week ahead and find that keeping myself busy makes life a little easier and more enjoyable. Every night when I go to bed, the memories are playing in my head like a movie and I get very little quality sleep. I stay up very long, get up late but still feel not really rested.

When I stepped outside today a racoon walked nonchalantly through my garden and then disappeared under the fence into the neighbors yard. Last night there was a lot of screaming going on and I wonder what was fighting what. I did not see any traces this morning but it smells like something died in my shed.
I planted the herbs today and there is room for more in the bed, maybe I'll get some lemon balm, I already bought a separate planter for the lavender.
