Hey, guys. I just wanted to check in with my knitting comrades and let you know I'm still around.
I check the site daily, but I haven't felt like contributing - despite some FOs I haven't posted to either Ravelry OR MWK. Been in what feels like pseudo cryo-sleep for the last couple of weeks due to my partner of 4 years telling me he is not sure whether he's still in love with me. We are taking some time for him to figure things out...primarily whether this feeling of detachment has come from work/family stress (he's been enduring far more than I ever could...) or if it's legitimately the end of our "partnership." To his credit, he's not been cold or assholey (if that's even a word) about it. Has been gentle with me and cautious. Nevertheless, it does not seem as this will end happily. As a result, I have been wholly unmotivated to knit or post anything. I will admit that although it's not been easy, I'm remembering to take deep breaths and reminding myself that my fate is not yet sealed.
On the other hand, the semi-permanent knot in my neck and shoulders would indicate that I need to do more than just deep breathing. LOL
