A Lack of Sleep and New WIP

August 7, 2014

Atelier doing yokeFia has recently decided that she can only sleep if I an somehow attached to her, which has meant that I am in her room sleeping in her bed very often of late.  The pattern has been that I go to sleep for the night, and she wakes up 5 minutes later and starts screaming.  She only falls back asleep deeply enough an hour later for me to creep back to my bed, and is then awake again around 4 am.  Last night was the same pattern, but I just couldn’t get out of bed, so Mr. J. is now in there sleeping with her.  The reasons are multi on her part, but she says she is scared of the big wind we had last night, and ghosts, and so many other things.  When you are 3, so many things are scary.  Onto my new projects, I have cast on for Atelier and am enjoying the simplicity of the yoke knitting.  The colour is so vivid, and I can knit without watching it closely as I watch another episode of Hell on Wheels, my current favorite show.

Starting laminariaI have also finally started a new shawl pattern.  I have so many of these in the queue, and have the yarn already, that I need to be making one or two a year just to use it all up.  This is such a tiny beginning of Laminiria, but all great journeys start with the first step, and the cast on of most shawls is a bit tricky.  Now I am into the simple beginning pattern and things are moving faster.  I have to look at this knitting more often with all the K3tog, so this is reserved for shows I don’t really need to watch.  All for now, I need to go and wake up the rest of the family for the work day.
