A bit dopey

The title of this post says it all. Stress and worries have made me quiet, miserable and to say the least down in the dumps. I have spent a lot of my spare time pottering around the house and making sure that it's 'tidyish' and most evenings I have been working on my Target 60 blanket. I completed all the blocks a couple of days ago and crocheted them together and joining as you go with my own design hoping that when I get to crocheting all around the edge, it will give me a base to start the edging. Well, so far it's doing ok and am pleased with the outcome. My mind kept wandering off to my next blanket I want to do, whether its going to be knitted or crocheted and it's not easy you know. I love my crocheting, it's so quick to make a blanket but inside my head I keep seeing visions of a knitted squares blanket with loads of colour. The only thing that puts me off with that is, sewing the squares together! Anyway, my aim is to keep making blankets, as many as I can in order to recoup the money back and to put out there into the big wide world, my heirlooms. The blanket's I have made with copyright are going to be gifts to those near and dear to me and hopefully, will be looked after. I was looking at a colour wheel on my mobile the other day as I rode home on the bus and I kept looking at what matches with the colour orange but it's a difficult colour to match up. I think a blue would go nice with it but I dont want the orange to be bright and bold so am leaning towards a rusty orange...who knows! Then I got the idea of doing a blanket that is a stitch sampler but using the silvery grey I am using for my Target 60, black and cream and maybe even a beige. Not sure with that yet, just my mind trying to keep occupied.
I haven't been able to go jogging for over a month because after wearing a cheap flat pair of shoes, I ended up damaging my muscle under my foot and was diagnosed with 'plantar fascitis' and it flipping hurts in the mornings and after I get up from sitting down. I have been strapping it up, rolling my foot on a bottle of ice and it does help but it's not enough for me to feel comfortable to go jogging again at the moment. I don't want to make it worse and end up not jogging ever again. I am still walking my 4 miles a day and trying to eat normal but it's not easy at the moment. I have put on 4 kilo's which has got me down a bit but am trying to stay positive and hopefully, will lose it again soon. Oh well, am off to do one of the worst jobs around the house, IRONING! Have a good week and I will post my edge pattern from the Target 60 blanket in the week. Thanks for reading.
