Brain Dead

That about describes how I am feeling.  I'm sure getting two hours of sleep Thursday night has something to do with it, but I have been feeling singularly uninspired for awhile.  I did some work on my IT! piece today, but I still don't have a definite idea of where I'm going with it.  Right now I'm praying for a miracle in that department.

The one fiber thing that has been going well is knitting- something that is ideally suited to those brain dead times.  I am so happy with how my sock is coming along! I am past the heel, and now just knitting up the leg- I'll just keep at it til I run out of yarn, since I only bought two skeins.  These will go great with jeans this winter!

I just can't believe how easy this has been on the two circular needles.  I purposely  bought two different kinds, and that has turned out to be a good decision.  So now I'll just keep knitting up the leg with a 2 X 2 ribbing till the yarn runs out.  Look what you started, Judy!  My family is already thinking they will be getting socks for Christmas.  And I know my next pair will be wilder, both the yarn and the stitch patterning.  Size two needles turns out to be not so bad when you're only knitting on sixty stitches.

Well, hopefully I'll have something quilty to post later this week.  Right now I think I need some more catch-up sleep!

Wishing you great sleep tonight with a dream of how your IT! will look when it is finished.

WOW!!! Look at YOU!!!! I am so impressed!!! The next thing you'll have to do is dye some of your own yarn, which is so easy you won't believe it!!! If you have a studio/dye dedicated microwave, you are in business! I have finished the baby sweater and am now working on a little hat.........more little socks and mitts to be knit, but hopefully I have about 8 weeks!

Wow, cool sox! Do you knit them right up your leg? (I know zip about knitting, so you could tell me anything and I'd believe you.)

I know the muse will drop an inspiration on you soon.

I don't think I ever knitted on anything but circular needles, from the time I learned to knit as a kid. They are the best!

Knitting is a good zen thing to do while you wait for the muse to come back (which it will).
