I have slept 8 hours in total the last two days.
If we aren’t working, we are at our HIP (House In Progress) so I turn on my needles at the end of the day, at about 9pm, thinking that I’ll knit for an hour to take off the pressure and go straight to bed.
F falls asleep on the couch immediately, covered by his blanket (I know I must write a FO post about it sometime).
I’m knitting and knitting and the stripes are forming on their own and I’m getting so excited that I don’t feel sleepy!
At about midnight, F wakes up, sees me still knitting and drags me to bed. I’m still full of adrenaline, my mind is on the stripes and how I’ll make the next sock matching.
Two more hours pass without me sleeping.
At 6am the alarm starts buzzing and as I wait in the car for F’s morning inspection at the construction, I knit a couple of rows.
The same happened the next day.
Fatigue and insomnia is showing on my face.
But can you blame a stripe addict?
I very pleased on how the colors look on the heel turn.
I used the shadow raps short rows technique.
The result is very neat and exactly the same on both sides.
It is the first time I knit on such small needle size (2,5mm).
The stitches are so delicate and easy to drop.
So I asked my wonderful man to make me a DPN case.
Literally 5 minutes later I had my case!!!!!
He cut off a rectangular piece of a plastic tube and added rubber tops.
I LOVE HIM!!!! ♡♡♡♡♡
My stitches are secured!!!!
Tonight I’ll go to bed at 10 no matter what!
I hope you’re getting more rest than me….
