Last night - and this is shocking...brace yourself.... - I slept for six hours. Six long, dream filled hours. Insomnia has become a part of my life, my day to day routine really. To sleep a full night is a wonderful treat.

Finally, the sun has blessed our house. I managed to get a few photos of some of my WIP's and a few FO's to share.

First we have my beloved pink/green felted bag. I love this bag - perfect colors. Used Knit Picks Merino Style in asparagus & petal. This didnt felt as thick as I prefer - but I just can't bring myself to complain as I so love the colors.

Next is a shot of the blanket I made with the Plymouth Alpaca Brush. Super soft, I'm wishing I had bought more to make this bigger and a lap blanket for home. But - it will make a lovely baby blankie for someone.

Next is the back of my Cable Eight tank from IK (the last issue). This is a pattern thats super easy but also a little tedious. Its gonna be too cute when I'm finished though - so worth the effort. Sable seems to want to be in this shot no matter how much I shooed her.

A pic of a pink crochet shawl I have been working on off & on. Its a mindless thing that I can work on when watching tv. The yarn is a mercerized cotton that I got a while back and didnt know what to do with. The color is kind of sparkly which I just can't capture well with my cheap little camera.

And last a photo of the hand dyed yarn I made last week - wound into a center pull. I actually ordered more undyed wool earlier this week as I am addicted to this whole hand dyeing process. I am trying to figure out what to make with it though - 400 yds, sock weight - ideas? Already tried another sock - and it just is not happening for me!

Thats it for my pics. Exciting eh? Makes it worth the trip over here right?

Your sense of humor reminds me of my sister and that's a compliment. I'm not into knitting, but I might come back just for the enjoyable read.

Insomnia, eh? I have the same problem. I'm up until 2 or 3am most nights then up by 7am (I have fibromyalgia and the sleep disorder kinda goes with it.) Drop me an email with your MSN s/n and I'll add you to my buddy list...we can chat late into the night...

Wonderful colors on your felted bag. Did you post a pic of it pre-felting? (Or am I just missing it?)

My condolences on the insomnia. I don't have it anymore :: knock wood :: but had it horribly a couple years ago.

Of course it's exciting! It's like a feast for the eyes to see all those finished/almost finished things. I need to do some more crochet, like for a summery shawl. Love the bag!

Wow. That felted purse is beeeyoootiful! Love those colors. I've been curious about felting for awhile.
