Yes, we have no pictures

There has been knitting here this week, just no pictures, and very little blogging. I've finished birthday gift number 2, and it has been gifted, yet in my genius moments Wednesday morning as I was up at 5 (and to bed at 1 - ah the insommnia has returned), doing three loads of laundry, handwashing my socks, hemming my pants, ironing, making lunch, and addressing packages, I forgot to take a picture. I'll tell you more about it soon - when it has been received.

I've finished the Sophie bag, yet without sunlight it would appear as a big black blob. It's waiting to be felted with the felted hat, which has been restarted now twice.

I'm halfway through the third washcloth of a set. I started a red scarf. I put the sleeves of Licorice Whip on holders and I'm knitting the body.

And yes, I bought more yarn. This allowance thing is really bad. My four huge rubbermaid tubs are bursting (literally - I cannot snap the lids on them). And my knitting time isn't looking to increase anytime soon, so what am I doing?

Pictures soon. Must cast on second sock of either purple pair or green and pink so that I have something to knit during my 8 hour inservice tomorrow. What fun.


  1. Aren't all knitters insomniacs?? When else would we get our knitting time? :)

  2. That is fun - think of it as 8h of quality knitting time!

  3. Even though I'm not suffering from insomnia, I am serisouly considering sleeping very little tonight. Not only are there about 6 loads of laundry waiting to be done, but we suddenly decided to visit my grandparents tomorrow, and I'm not yet done with Grandma's socks. So I guess there is an upside to not being able to sleep: productivity. :-) That said, I do hope you can sleep again soon. Maybe all that wool that's busting out of those tubs will start jumping over an imaginary fence, to help you count sheep. (sorry, that was very silly)

  4. I think maybe yarn has crack in it. Or heroin, perhaps. Today I went to buy one measly skein of yarn to make a gift, and ended up with wool to make a sweater for my kid because the yarn was the exact color of her eyes. How could I resist that??

  5. Four tubs? That's not bad at all.
