Here’s the thing: 3:30 in the morning is not a good time to wake up. It’s just not. But for some reason Grace could not be convinced. The husband went down once to try to get her to stop barking, but it didn’t work, so rather than both of us lose sleep, I went down to sleep on the couch. And she was fine with that. She didn’t need to go out, didn’t seem to be hungry. Duncan immediately laid on top of me and went to sleep, Jack laid on the floor next to me and went to sleep, and she went off and did who knows what, but she was quiet and didn’t make a mess. Now, I love my dogs and there is a certain charm to sleeping with one on top of you, but man. I need a new couch if that’s gonna happen again or my back is not going to be happy. Thankfully, this doesn’t seem to be a habit of hers, just something that pops up once in a blue moon.
So, I’m a little tired today. But I’ve figured out what my new cast-on needs to be: a Sockhead cowl! We have a band concert tonight and I have no projects that are suitable for in-the-dark easy knitting. You can’t get easier than the Sockhead. Now I just need to pick the yarn! I’m thinking this pink and black Done Roving Frolicking Feet would look pretty awesome.
Oh, and something sad: I wore my brand new Hedgehog Fibres Gossip socks yesterday… and they itched me! Not right away, but by the time I got home from work, I needed to get them off my feet. I’ll wash them and see if that helps, but if not, looks like the girl will get a new pair of socks.
I hope you all got more sleep than I did last night!
