Fiber Goodies, Yarn, and It's A Warm, Sleepless Summer Night....

The time is a few minutes after 4 a.m. and I can't sleep. Every time I try, my legs are jumpy as well as my mind. I don't know what going on lately. I've had several of these nights where I'm tired, but, just can't sleep. Usually I just get up and come out to the living room so my poor husband can sleep. The a/c is on in the bedroom, so that's not the cause. Maybe I'm just getting to that age where this starts to happen. What sucks is I'll be dragging my butt around in the morning and not wanting to get up, leading to another wasted morning. Grrrr.

For now, I'm knitting on my basic sock, which is almost ready for the toe decreases. Just about 2 more inches and they start. Here's hoping I zone out from the boring knitting and can go back to bed. I do have a busy day planned for today, including errands, housework, laundry, cooking, and craft night. I know. Not too exciting, but necessary stuff.

I took a break from spinning today because the wrist is a bit sore after finishing all the BFL in two days. Maybe tomorrow I can spin a bit of the silk on the spindle. I think it's going to be on the Butterflygirl one.

My order from CJKopec came in today. It's three different fiber blends and she included a nice fiber gift for me as well. Thanks, Coby. Also arriving today was my order from DkKnits which consisted of my Seaside Bond Collection yarn , two other skeins of yarn , and some roving she had dyed. Lovely stuff.

Well, let me finish this row and try to go to bed again.......

It sounds like Restless Leg Syndrome. I think that there's a fix for that somewhere, vitamins or something.

I hear you on the insomnia. We sold our house Monday, closing on this coming Monday. I have a bazillion things to do in a short time and need the sleep but it's hard to sleep when you are so dang excited!!!!

See you soon!
