DUH! As I was swimming today, and I began to hurt, I thought to myself that this may be the time to stop swimming and not push myself thru it. I asked one of my fellow swimmers who is a nurse and she agreed that if I am starting to feel pain, and I have taken 100mg Tramadol and 1000mg of Paracetamol, then my body was telling me to stop! Perhaps this will mean I can go back to daily swimming. At least one good thing is that the pain in my arms and shoulders has abated this last few days and I am just experiencing the usual.

CASHMERE. I have knitted up two swatches. One in violet and the other in orange. Both are going to be for me. Round neck, set in sleeves, plain.

SOCKS. Well I frogged the pattern I designed yesterday after all! It will work well on a plain coloured yarn, but not on the multicoloured yarn I am using. I think when it comes to these yarns, I will stick to ribbing.

I mentioned how bored I was with knitting ribs for socks on the knitting lists. I was astonished at the amount of people who wrote in suggesting.....ribs!!!!!!!! Still, at least they were kind to write with a suggestion.

Today is sock wash day as I have one clean pair left. All I have to do now is put them all in pairs on the drying stand thing I use. Clothes horse? I think that is what it is called.

This is a toilet. It is sitting on top of a brick chute. From the ground, I had thought it was some sort of ancient lifting mechanism until John told me it was the toilet chute. The King or whoever, sat in there over the chute and let it go!
