A Knit Decision

Knitting in Oregon, with other stuff, too, such as crochet, cats, dogs, history, fashion, highly opiniated rants, reading, diabetes, church, life in general, etc. I like circular needles, prefer natural yarns, don't spin, choose small projects, and don't have any one favorite yarn store. I love them all.

I must actually be depressed...

I haven't knitted in weeks.

I need to sew up my mitts and send them off.

I need to knit the arms for Emily's baby sweater.

I feel blah.

I'm working with my grandparents as they clean out their house in preparation for a move to a retirement community. They have to be out by November 20th. I don't think they're going to make it 100%. They plan on renting a storage space unit. Not the most ideal situation. Their home is about two and a half hours away from me. I went up two weekends ago, and I'm going up again this weekend.

I must pick up my needles.

Maybe I should sign up for that class on knitting socks on two circular needles. That's a project that I know I want to do, and I love the store, and I like the teacher, too.

(And I've already been back on anti-depressant medications for 3 weeks now. Yippee.)

Knitting is good for my mental health. I know it. And yet...

Sorry to hear you're feeling down. Maybe a visit with a babe will cheer you up?

Hope you're talking about my class!

At least come some Thursday night to Tangle and knit with all the knitsters. Great people and lots of fun!

I was right there just a few weeks ago. I wanted to knit, but had no will to. I found a project that really got me going and I've been non-stop since! I hope you feel better soon!

Sorry to read about your depression. I know the feeling and it's not just a matter of finding the right project.

I've fought depression more than once(but have been okay for 3+ years now). Stick with the meds and don't hesitate to try other types if what you have doesn't work.

You'll get through this and be knitting again.
