A pleasant surprise

Today we went to the spray pool on the Commons. I don't know why we've never visited it before, both Doodle and The Boy loved it. House Man dropped me off in a parking lot near the Commons, and took off to do groceries. As I left the car park and headed for the street, I came across this on a railing

Is it too geeky of me to say that I think my heart may actually have skipped a beat? I was way too excited by this. It's my first guerrilla knitting find! Knit graffiti! Looked like acrylic to me, blue and green. How exciting! I immediately grabbed my phone and took a photo, and then I tweeted about it. While it doesn't quite make up for the horror that was yesterday (broken glasses, sudden illness, overtired 6 year old, and seeing House Man getting out of a police car after being driven off the road on his motorcycle by someone who just didn't see him sitting there in the right hand lane-thank you to the lovely policeman who drove him home, BTW), it certainly made my day today!

And the spray pool you ask? Well, it was lots of fun.

Please excuse the quality of these photos, they were taken with my mobile.

My babies...

Aged 6 and 6 months.

And I do have some FOs to post, I just haven't been fast enough to take pictures before Doodle spits up on them!

Just a quick photo...

Taken last Sunday, by Lara, with her iPhone. Just to let you all know how cute the baby is. She now has a blog name. It's Doodle. Chosen by The Boy, of course!

Long overdue...

So I haven't blogged much lately. I haven't actually done much of anything recently. For those who don't know, I've been battling with post partum depression since The Girl was born. And yes, depression does seriously eat into knitting time. However, with lots of support and some medication, I'm feeling much better these days, most of the time anyway. It's still not always easy, but I'm getting there, I think.

For me, one of the signs that I was starting to feel better was that the desire to pick up my knitting needles came back. Another sign was that I started carrying a book from room to room with me again. Reading and knitting are now almost daily activities again!

So, an update. I'm finished the babywearing poncho from Little Turtle Knits. It needs blocking, then I'll take photos. I still need to finish the op art blanket from Knitty for The Girl. And I've cast on some socks for me. First project I've cast on since The Girl was born in October, so that's a good sign that I'm on the road to recovery, I think.

I want to say a big thank you to everyone for their support. I don't think it's been easy for my family or friends. Those of you who deserve thanks know who you are, and I want you to know how much it meant to me. Oh, and Charlene, we finally drank the pumpkin ale last night!

Somebody just loves his little sister!
