Day Eighty-Four

Most of this week was a loss. I'd been feeling a depressive episode coming on for a couple weeks, and I finally tipped over sometime on Monday. Fortunately I was pretty well prepared, and I started feeling better yesterday afternoon. I'm sure there might be some dips over the next few days, but I'm cautiously optimistic that I'm coming out of it. 

I haven't really shared my tank sample since I cast it on, and it's almost finished! There's a few rows of the upper back left and then straps, and I'm hoping to finish writing the pattern this weekend. I'm not sure yet which project will take this one's place—it's been my main project since I finished the unicorn sweater, and I don't really know if I have another "almost-mindless" project to take it's place. I'm sure I'll figure it out, though.

If you're protesting, mask up and drink lots of water. If you're not protesting, check in with protesters, donate to a bail fund and/or protest medics, and contact your representatives. Love you all.

  1. Hi Kat, I just started following your blog last week. I appreciate your upbeat attitude and adventurous knitting style. Reading about your depression and your ability to self care and get through it quickly (although I’m sure it doesn’t feel that way in the middle of it) gave me some hope. I’m learning to manage my own illness, and it’s great to see what looks like success from here. Thank you for sharing.
