Tired, and Dreaming of Knitting

I didn’t get much sleep last night so I have sort of just followed the schedule today, going from one thing to the next. It’s funny, though, that I keep daydreaming of possible projects. I have gone a long while without being inspired. Warm weather always gives me a big boost of energy and so it’s time! Today even with low sleep I found myself scrubbing the tables and computer desks in my lab. It really does look better, but there are days I wouldn’t notice the need for a scrub.

My current project is a store sample of the Fast Florida Footie for Heritage Spinning. It’s in a gorgeous apricot solid color of Cascade Fixation. I asked Joan to send me whatever she wanted me to use for the sample, and what a great choice she made. It’s very fun. I started the footie last night after midnight and I’m almost ready to do the toe (these are top down). And that is with a relatively busy day today.

I’m obsessing over what sleeveless (or small cap sleeve) top I can make with what yarn, that will look good, be fun but easy to knit, and be the right weight/warmth. I’m digging in my stash to find inspiring yarns, but it’s slow going. It seems I need a big quantity of DK yarn for most projects and I don’t have much in that department. One day at a time, I guess.

My eyes are barely open, I’ll write more later. Enjoy the warmth.
