Today's blog title is because it is passed the mid-night hour and I am sitting here in the semi-dark typing away. I prefer to be sleeping right now, but my body decided it was time to get up so here I am. I was thinking of picking up my March project or my April project and working on that, but my wrist is still feeling tender from whatever it is that I did to it on Friday.
Which means that today you get mostly my sleepless ramblings, Ravelry pattern day dreams and maybe a confession or two. Like, I have not been able to keep to my "no Yarn buying till November plan". Yeah, I cheated at the Homespun Yarn party last weekend. I only bought two skeins, but I still broke my yarn diet. I have no self control. For my second confession, I plan on breaking it again at Maryland Sheep and Wool in May.
By the way, what is up with Bottom-up tops? What is the point of designing and knitting or crocheting a garment from the bottom-up? I have found so many nice tops that I would love to make but I see the dreaded bottom-up tag and it is automatically vetoed. I have to try on tops as I make them, my main fit concern is at the top, not the bottom of my tops. I want to make sure that I make all pattern adjustments early on and the only way to do that, at least in my world is by trying it on as I make it. I have other pet peeves but I think I will stop here since I am sure you do not want to read all my crazy woman complaints.
Let us move on to the good stuff. Ravelry patterns that I currently covet. Folks, I must tell you that I can never die, my Knitting/Crocheting wishlist will take me a life time or two to complete. But I am sure I am not the only one with that problem.
First Pattern up is Miss Holloway:

Last but not least is Princess and The Pea:
You know a shawl had to be added to the list somewhere! This pattern was brought to my attention by my co-worker. It is a Lily Go design and if you know this designer you know she designs some of the most beautiful shawls. I currently have this and this one in my "I hope I get around to these patterns in this lifetime" queue.
Since this post is not already long enough I will add photos of my most recent sewing adventures. This was for a Google+ swap where we made each other project bags. Aside from the project bag I made my partner a tote bag so that she has something to carry any new yarn she happens to stumble upon.

Until next time, Happy Knitting!
