Insomniac Knitting

Last night was really rough for me. I was in bed by 10:15, completely exhausted and hoping for a decent night's sleep. Instead, I got a visit from the Insomnia Monster. Much like the Fear Bugs, the Insomnia Monster had been around for years. I was, in fact, complaining about him in my first journal at age 13.

I finally gave up at 2:30 and got out of bed. I grabbed my knitting bag and iPod and went to the kitchen for about an hour and 15 minutes of quiet knitting time. The happy news is that I finished the body of the Firmaments Lace Shawl, and will be starting on the edging this morning.

The bad news is that I managed less than three hours of sleep last night - and what sleep I did get was fitful at best. Argh.

In other happy news of the creative sort - I am really, really loving Le Tour De Fleece. I have been spinning a bit every morning, and while it may not be much right now it is very, very satisfying.

Wow, you're on the edging! You're on the home stretch now.

I also sometimes vanquish the Insomnia Monster by knitting. When you hit "a certain age" that particular monster comes around a lot. :-(
