Can't sleep

I had a long day today and I'm exhausted and yet I can't sleep. I don't know if its the Excedrin I took a couple hours ago to kick the last of my migraine in the butt or if its because I just can't stop thinking about colorways and things I want to dye and where I want the shop to go. All I know is I can't sleep.

While I'm not sleeping I think I should catch you all up on the thinks that have been completed since we last spoke. I have finished knitting the French Market bag in two shades of blue. I don't have any pictures at the moment because I still haven't felted the damn thing so it just looks like a big blue amoeba. I finished my razor cami and I love it! I've worn it a couple times now and I have to say Debbie Bliss Cashmerino is freakin WARM!

I finished my Loopy Ewe sheep socks a while ago but I never shared a picture of the completed socks. I love these socks, the sheep are just too stinkin cute.

I also finished the Trellis and Pear Cylinder. I love the way this turned out. The alpaca is really warm and soft so it will be perfect for the cold weather.

All-in-all I've been rather busy during my little blogging break. Now if I could find my spindle in the mess I call an apartment I could finish the roving I've been working on for the last 4 or so months and move onto the other rovings I have in my stash. I'm still convinced that our cleaning lady found it and put it somewhere odd because she didn't know what it was. I guess I'll have to turn the apartment upside this weekend to find it.
The only thing I'm knitting at the moment is a pair of super simple Sts socks for Carl. I'm using the green and brown yarn I dye when I took that dyeing class at The Point. So far I am loving the way the yarn turned out. It looks almost camouflage like which is great when you're making socks for a boy.
Well I'm going to flip though the things we have taped on the DVR and hope there's something worth watching till the sleepytime pills kick in.

I especially like the cami, and I agree, that yarn *is* very warm. I hope you're able to get some good sleep soon :-)

I think you're going through yarn-knitting-friend withdrawal :o)

If it's any consolation - we were at the beach for a few days and came home one night early because we couldn't sleep a wink - the beds were awful and the air made our heads groggy - boo hiss on the shore for that!

the other bad part is that i didn't knit for approx 48 hours - what a sin!

hope you get some sleep soon!
