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!
