No rest for the weary....

no sleep again last night. :sigh: Need to figure this out - I am one tired fiberaddict!

I do have a confession to make. I.....cheated on the cardigan. It was an accident....when we went to the LYS, I bought a skein of Henry's Attic Cascade (fingering weight 100% silk) to knit the kippah from Piecework's "Historical Knitting" issue. (NOT because I think women should wear headcoverings - it's NOT Torah-based, and most of the women that do it (that aren't Mennonite or Amish, anyway) around here do it for the attention it brings them. :sigh: THAT'S a whole 'nother rant.

Anyway......I had flipped thru the issue, saw the kippah, and HAD to knit it. (These things happen.) I put it in line AFTER the sweater - as a "whee! We're DONE!" sorta present to myself......but last night I snapped.

I had noticed that I was looking for reasons to NOT knit the sweater. I had 2 hours yesterday and 4 hours on Wednesday that I could have knit at work...and I DIDN'T. Instead, I looked at knitting online. I browsed eBay. I browsed CraigsList. Anything I could do to NOT knit. :sigh:

So, last night I came in, tossed my knitting travel-bag on the table, and announced "I need to knit something NOT green!". Sweet Geek blinked, then said "OK. Start on your kippah!". :love that man:

I did.....4 times. :sigh: You start with 8 stitches on 4 DPNs. Or you're supposed to. I ended up putting the 8 on 3 DPNs. I'm on row 5 (again)...we'll see if I can keep going (you start the whole shebang with a yarn over. I can do that - it's easy. It's NOT easy keeping *track* of the first YO when you're talking about 8 stitches on 3 DPNs. In slippery silk.) :grumble:

Since I'm up (still), think I'll go wrangle with it. At least it's silk, it's cream-colored, and it isn't GREEN. (I will go back to the sleeve this weekend. I've only got 4 pattern repeats to go. 48 rows. Of 102 stitches each. Relatively mindless knitting at this point......:lol:)
