My Heart's Just Not Into It...

I know I spoke of how super excited I was to start on my Featherweight Cardigan by Hannah Fettig, but after some familial issues I'm dealing with a bout of depression that I cannot shake loose. Even worse, it's not letting me knit. I mean I try, really I do. I start with my cast on, get 5 or 6 rows in and then BOOM, a mistake or a dropped stitch, or something and I find myself ripping out my work putting it down for the day and not wanting to pick it up again for the rest of that day. My heart is heavy and hurting and I hope that this bout passes soon.
Thanks for listening....


  1. Hello! Congratulations on your new blog. I followed you over here from Ravelry. I am sorry to hear that you are fighting a bout of depression, and I hope you feel better soon. I can certainly identify. My poor little blog has nearly died over the last year for the same reason. Crocheting actually makes me feel better, but stringing words into coherent sentences seems harder than it used to be.

    I am looking forward to seeing more of your projects. The socks from the previous post are wonderful. I wish I could make some like that, but I am not much of a knitter.

  2. I am sorry you are depressed. I've dealt with that some in my past (but thank God not in a long time). Sometimes knitting/crocheting gets us through the rough times, sometimes we don't want to bother. Hope you get to feeling more like yourself soon.
