My current work in progress:

Seaforth designed by Alice Starmore, knit in British Breeds 5-ply Guernsey Wool on US 3 needles.


The Lost Weekend

It only stands to reason that when you spend multiple nights in a row getting 2 to 3 hours of sleep, you will eventually crash. This weekend I could have won the Sleep Olympics.

So, lots of sleep (good), little time doing much else (bad). I was hoping to finish the Cleite Shawl. I am close, but no cigar.

I have 4 rows (very long rows!) plus the bind-off left to do.

If my hands will allow me, I’ll try to finish it today, but I’ve got other things I need to accomplish too. apart from the inevitable nap that is. 😉

Lucy doesn’t understand the problem with taking multiple naps every day. It is a lifestyle she embraces!


  1. I’m glad that you were able to sleep. Wow, you did get alot done on the shawl, I’m happy you could work on it. Have a good day.

  2. Lucy has to have her priorities! Naps are number 1.

  3. Sleep is a wonderful thing…. On your shawl: how many repeats are you doing? I’m just starting the 7th, and it still looks very small (laceweight lambswool on US#4s) This was my Ravelympics challenge and oops: no podium for me.

  4. The shawl is such a pretty color!

  5. Rule 1; Always listen to the cat…they do know what they are talking about when it comes to naps 🙂
    Rule #2; The cat is always right 🙂

    Yep — Danielle’s right – always listen to Lucy. She won’t steer you wrong 😛

  7. When I knit in a state of sleep deprivation, the only thing I might win later is a Frogging contest.

  8. The shawl looks wonderful – and every time I knit sleep-deprived? I end up knitting too loose compared to my full-alertness knitting. Sleep was probably a good call. =)

  9. When I take naps, Izzy Kizzy considers that to be quality time spent with her since catnapping is her favorite pastime. I hope you’re feeling more “rested.”

  10. Napping is good. Giving in to a nap is your body saying “Your batteries need recharging. Nap or have your data wiped! ”

  11. I love your blog but must admit to sometimes skimming down to see what Lucy sez first. YOU GO GIRL, NAP AWAY!

  12. We could learn a lot from our cats about how to relax…lol. Looking forward to the finished shawl when you’re able to finish it!

  13. Sleep is always good, and that came straight from the bosses mouth (Lucy)
