You can get a lot done in those eight hours your's supposed to be sleeping. I'm too old for all-nighters, so I'm sleeping, just not the usual 8-9 hours. I can function on 5 at the least and I'm testing it hard this week! I've been really productive, so that helps keep my spirits up when my eyes are drooping. I'm knitting up a storm, too (but only when my brain threatens to explode)!
This is an Insouciant, which I'm calling Falling. It's incredible. It's too spring-like to be knitting now, but I can get some fall wear out of it too, I hope. The yarn is from those cones my friend pawned off on me. I'm kind of crazy about the yarn! I wasn't so sure at first.
This is a vest for John. I'm calling it Hancock for the skyscraper in Chicago. The color reminds me of the building. I've knit the vest before. I love it, but didn't want to knit it for him. He wanted a buttoned vest, though and liked that one. I hope I can make it look less '30s and more...him. The color alone so far is doing all the work.
And this is Rock Island. I'm doing one 8-row edge repeat for every page of Greek I read a day. I'm not reading enough, but the prize of knitting a repeat is great incentive to read. The reading is also getting much easier, faster, and more enjoyable, so it's a win-win situation. I have no idea where all my shorter cables are (you know you need to finish something when...), so I've been knitting 14-16 stitches on a 32" cable! It's obnoxious, but it will be easier when I start working the body of the shawl. Right now the edging looks like...well...that. I have to keep stopping and stretching it to remind myself that it will be stunning.
I also have a freshly-started Double-Leafed Saroyan in the car. We are knitting-along at the shop where I work and it's so much fun to see all the different yarn, color, fiber, and pattern choices! I think I'm officially the slowest right now. Hopefully, I'll have some progress and pics to share next week.
I don't know if I'll have anything finished for Friday. Maybe I'll finally get some baby booties done. I do have a small project I'll share if nothing else comes off the needles. It's cute, if nothing else. :) How are you guys doing? Got any extra hours lying around I can borrow for the next couple of days? Sleep well for me, if nothing else! I'm going to bed early tonight and sleeping in tomorrow, I'll tell you that much!
