Saturday Stuff

Is anyone else having to remind themselves what day it is? I keep thinking “ok, today is —-“. It’s weird having no real schedule to follow.

I’m ready to knit the toe on the sock. The plan is to knit my usual toe, not the one in the pattern. I’ll get to it later on today. Hopefully I’ll start the leg too.

Did you see that the WHO would like us to stop using the phrase social distancing and start using the phrase physical distancing? It makes sense. It is a better description of what we need to practice. I’m going to try to remember to use it.

  1. I did NOT see that. It does, in fact, make sense. Takes the fire out of the introvert memes or jokes though. I will, too, try to remember that. I keep forgetting what day it is as well. And then I remember, I go back to work Monday. It’s just weird all around. Hope you get good knitting in. I am trying to make the most of the time writing.

  2. All our pubs, restaurants, schools, gyms, cinemas, clubs etc are all closed. Restaurants are able to operate as takeaways only. I never remember what day it is. Our elderly neighbour emailed to ask if we’d put the bins out on Wednesday night for Thursday’s collection. All day I kept thinking ‘the bin men are late, are they also stopped?’ …turned out we’d put them out on Tuesday night!

    “Physical Distancibg” makes so much more sense.

  5. I didn’t see that but I think it’s great! I’ve been trying to use that phrase for a while since I think it’s a much better reflection of what we’re doing. I have been much more social this week with FaceTime and zoom than usual!

    I refused to use social dist, I just say isolation. I hate all the catchy phrases they come up with.


  7. It is hard to keep track of the day, and I’m retired! But I had my routine and now it is gone. And I miss it, but know it is necessary. Lots of time to create, but find myself a bit unmotivated. Just have to kick myself into moving!


  8. When I first had to stop working due to disability, I discovered it helps me to have one set thing per day of the week. Monday is meditating. Tuesday is “toes day” – I groom the dog’s paws and my own lol. Wednesday is wash day, I do my laundry. Thursday was always stitching with my local Crafters. Friday is fun day, I usually played Pathfinder with friends. Saturday is Sabbath, as is Sunday, so I rest up from all the socializing and do churchy stuff.

    Maybe giving yourself an activity dedicated to each day of the week can help you during the crisis? ❤️

    The sock is so cheerful! Beautiful work!

    You made short work of the foot of the sock. I have a 9.5 inch foot and it seems to take forever to do the foot. I so love the colors you have chosen.

    Thanks for the reminder of Physical Distancing. My hubby said there was a newer name but couldn’t remember what it was. Now I can tell him.

    I have no idea what day it is most of the time! Thankfully I live alone, so there’s no one to distance from🤣

    I’m still working, and I was already an online student so I still had plenty to do. The only change in my schedule this week has been my knitting. I hurt my wrist moving furniture.

  12. I have no idea what day it is now. Without swim lessons or social groups I’m convinced every day is Tuesday.

  13. Did the original pattern include a spiral toe? Would your usual method accommodate that? That would be so cool! Being retired, I sometimes loose track of what day it is – but I’m counting down to having to transport my cousin to essential medical appointments this coming week, so days are firmly fixed in my mind right now!

    The colors are so pretty! Physical distancing is a good description. I was the errand runner today. Snuck in a visit to my local quilt shop and bought some white and cream so I can quilt another six months.😆 I went to the hardware store for electrical wire and went to the empty grocery store. I did, however score the last Moose Tracks for DH!

  15. Your sock is beautiful! Such an interesting construction! I am really forward to seeing how it looks finished and also hearing how it fits 🙂
    I am losing track of time too. I am still working, though from home, so I’m not totally adrift at this point 🙂

  16. Your sock is looking fab! I am also having to keep remembering what day it is!

    I didn’t see the WHO thing about social/physical distancing but that is really true.

    That is smart to say physical distancing rather than social. Yeah, I totally am losing track of days around here. I have to ask Google Home b/c I haven’t worn my Apple watch since I had surgery.

    I too am having a little trouble knowing what day it is. I am retired, but very active in a several volunteer groups. With no meetings and only the occasional conference call to give structure to my schedule, I find I have check my phone to see what day it is.

  21. I have absolutely no idea what day it is. I used to keep track by my hobbies, but they’ve all stopped now so how are we supposed to know?
