I think I need to give updates on a few things.
I didn't sew in the sleeves of the Chevron jumper. I tried, I really did, but after about three hours trying I gave up due to mental exhaustion. I will try again but need to give this a bit of a rest.
So I picked another jumper from my pile of unfinished projects, and finished the Enchanted Mesa yesterday. I had put it away because I wasn't happy with how I had knitted the lower part of the body. Any which way I did it it didn't look nice. So, I opened the lower part up again on Saturday and did it exactly as described in the instructions. I'm happy now. I don't understand why I didn't like the instructed version in the first place. I apologise for the overexposed picture. Below my original schematic with my choice of colours.
I also got out the Jan Sweater (from Susan Crawford's A Stitch in Time 2) and sewed the shoulders. Just needs setting in the sleeves now. My pile of unfinished projects is gradually becoming smaller! Fantastic!
And...keeping Lent went well. I didn't feel it was particularly difficult not to eat sweet stuff during the week. I had some cravings, usually and very oddly at work in the mornings. And I have to admit I did do quite some binge eating on some Sundays. At first binging felt good and when I had stuffed myself I didn't feel that good anymore, which actually helped me to survive the upcoming week. I lost 4 kg and felt fantastic. I decided to continue after Easter which went well for the first week but then I got a surprise parcel with German sweets from my brother... Oh!?! I'm back on track now and I also go running again in the mornings. I really didn't like not being able to go running. I missed the exercise so much that I got a pair of support socks out with which I was able to run.
