Things.

"Things" have been going on here.
I spent most of last week mopey and fighting a pretty bad case of the blues. Nothing really to be sad about, but yet still feeling sad.
I've stepped up the workout routine, met with a trainer who (gently) kicked my butt and started to get back into eating healthy again.
Lo and behold, I'm feeling better. I don't know whether it's the food, the workouts or just time, but I'm good again.
Thank goodness.
I've been knitting. Finished my Ravelympics sweater for The Boy. I need to take a photo of him in it. I think the arms are too big. (For a tall kid, he has tiny shoulders. There's bunching around there but I have no idea how to correct it. That's a post for another time though.)And I started a new vest for me. I'm not typically a fan of the vest, but with the cooler...almost cold... mornings starting already in the Northeast, I have this need to churn out wooly, cold weather gear. The vest is a happy medium.
You'll notice the similarities in the yarn between the two projects. The same Patons yarn was used for both. (Had to promise Hubs that I wouldn't make us wear them on the same day. Dork.)

I'm promising myself that I'll post more often. My already thin readership had dropped to only a couple of people a day. I hate when I get to like a blog, only to have the owner drop off the face of the earth.

I love that vest pattern! I can't wait to see yours. I keep thinking I should knit one, but I'm not sure I can pull it off.

You don't have to post daily or anything, but it is nice to know you're still alive. ;^)

I'm still reading! I'm just going through a really lame phase of rarely commenting.

Hi Sunflower- you're on my google reader so if you post, I'll read. : )

Great knitting going on. Makes me want to do some cables.

There are people out here who care about you!

I'm glad you're feeling better and wonder if it couldn't just be a let down from all the excitement of moving, your illness/treatment, etc. Love your new vest!

Miss you.

Girl I know the blues and sometimes they are hard to get out of. Just know you have a huge group for friends that will come rescue you when ever you need us.
