I'm depressed. So, I've been sitting here in my favorite chair in my livingroom. Knitting, reading and watching tv. I did go out to the library yesterday as some of my knitting books came in (all Debbie Bliss), but otherwise, I don't feel like doing anything.

My 11 yr old son is away this week on a school related excursion. So it's just my youngest daughter and hubby here at home. Daughter and I have been reading the Brambly Hedge books as I'm knitting her one of the families from the story and thought she should have some of the background on them. Which reminds me, I really should finish Dusty Dogwood up. He's about 95% complete. I just need to put him together.

I've also picked up my Cable Luxe again. I ripped back to the pick up row on the body and figured out how to pick up enough sts (by picking one up in each space, as well as in every 2nd row space as required - so picking up over 2 rows, instead of just over the first row). It's coming along nicely.

Plus I've started some baby stuff for a friend of mine who is expecting in August. I bought some Bernat Handicrafter cotton, and am working on a bib in 'KeyLimePie', plus I'll do some booties and scratch mitts. I've also picked out an outfit to knit, just looking for the yarn now. :)

I've also been working on a sweater coat. It has some of the most beautiful cables at the back! But it will probably not be done until the fall, it's such a big project.

Also, I've got the cabled purse that I started a couple months ago.... I have to work on that again....

Well, I've got the time now...

So sorry you're depressed. Don't worry - life will pick up again soon.

I say cast on something new and see if that helps. :)
