This morning I saw my therapist. I committed to doing the year-long DBT program. Now I have to go through a lengthy referral process. I then spent a couple hours in the Social Security Office.
The rest of the day, I spent finishing this hat!! It’s adorable and small for for my toddler niece. My sister specifically asked that it have ties because my niece won’t keep it on without being tied on. The color isn’t the best, but it’s various shades of blues and it’s going to look great with her blue eyes and blonde hair. I can’t wait to see it on her!
Now I need to finish my Nephew’s scarf, make his hat, and make my niece a scarf.
Knitting has been really good for me. I engage in eating disordered behaviors so much less since I started knitting. It gives me something productive and healthy to funnel my energy into.
I spent time with my friend today. We had a lot of fun. We walked around a giant mall and she spent a ton of money. We also painted mugs! Above is mine, pre-glaze and firing. They said it’ll take 4-7 days for that. I can’t wait to see it all done! The colors will be darker/brighter and it’ll be all shiny!
We went in several clothing stores. I hate clothing stores an avoid them like the plague. I honestly don’t even know when I was last in one before today. I hate the ads and the mannequins and the mirrors and the dressing rooms and the other people looking at me, probably judging me. And the clothes, I hate the clothes.
I did get a snack while I was out. This friend is someone I met in PHP so I feel more comfortable eating around her than most people. I got something safe, but I ate nonetheless. She’s still rocking recovery and I wanted to support her.
I also finished the hat for my friend’s scarf today, so I can send her those. Next I’m going to work on tiny hats and scarves for my toddler niece and nephew! Hopefully, by the time I finish those, my book on left-handed knitting will be here and I’ll be able to branch out a little!
I finished my friend’s scarf! Now I’m going to make her a hat because I have leftover yarn. Shhh, she doesn’t know about the hat.
