To blog or not to blog (no knitting)

I wasn't going to blog for a few days til things had settled down but then that is just the kind of behaviour my therapist has been trying to get me out of (keeping it all to myself and not worrying others with what's actually going on). Because, of course, things took a turn for the worse yesterday morning when woke up wishing I were dead and then it went on from there. The samaritans really are amazing. I am talking to them every day at the mo. I was very agitated yesterday morning and very upset and this great guy calmed me down and then I got very upset last night and another guy did the same again. Just got a massive headache this morning to show for it all. Feeling much calmer today.

Don't have to go in til 10 as I'm at a workshop all day (no, can't sit at the back and keep my head down - I'm one of the speakers!) and then have relaxing knitting to go to tonight. Going to take it easy for a few hours this morning.

I know I said there was no knitting in this one but I have been hard at work on my knitting dolly which is really making people give me weird looks on the tube as it has a little face painted on it and everything. Am making i-cord to embellish my bag. I now *hate* the clapotis. The decreases are taking so fricking long!!! I just want to wear the damn thing. Finally - am swatching for my step-dad's aran cardigan. Thinking of this pattern but is still all open.

Wow, people really love those little fimo knitting balls as much as I do! Guess what I'll be doing this weekend?!

And finally - something else to look forward to...Liz posted to the UKHK list about a jumper and there were some photos in her album of temari balls. She's invited me up to hers in a couple of weeks to learn how to make them. Have been looking at them online and they are sooo pretty. Will naturally post about how it goes. I'm so pleased I joined UKHK and started this blog - it's helped me meet so many amazing people.

Glad you felt that you could blog, sorry its so crappy at the moment, you'll have to come and show me how to do those beautiful balls once you've learnt how

Hope you feel better today.

I *love* the aran cardi! Came across it a few weeks ago and wanted to make it for DB in some Jaeger yarn I got on sale at John Lewis (never done any cabling like that, just plain simple ones, so that would have been a challenge), but 'Mr I don't wear anything remotely elaborate or fancy' said he didn't like it... But I still think it's splendiferous, let us know how you get on.

Have a great day,

Anna xx

Hope you're feeling better. Those balls are lovely (as the actress said to the bishop).

Sorry you're having a bumpy time of it just now and hope you feel better soon.

See you tonight at GG, if you're feeling up to it.

Sorry to hear that you are having such a rough time of life just now - I hope things pick up for you soon. Those balls do look just divine - phnar phnar !
