It's 1:30 a.m. - Do you know where your felted project is?

Mine is in the washer, hopefully felting to perfection. I have become truly obsessed with this craft we call knitting. I sat down around 9:00 tonight with a project in my head - no pattern - just some inspiration. Here I am 4 1/2 hours later, waiting to see if it felts to become anything close to what I had in mind. Now, I have to be up at 6:00 a.m. to get myself ready for work and the kids off to school. Any sane person would have put the needles down and tucked herself in at least by 11:00, but NOOOOOOOOOO - not I.

In my defense, part of my nightowledness tonight was due to a movie I have been wanting to see - The Other Boleyn Girl - that I knew H would not want to see. So I indulged in some late night movie watching while I knit. But the movie has been over for a couple of hours now, so I will admit, it has been creative genius (madness) that has kept me up into the wee hours.

Yawn! The felting is done. The project is a little cutie pie, if I say so myself. It is extremely impractical, which makes it all the cuter. I'll try to post some pics tomorrow. Right now, I've got to get a little shuteye. Or maybe cast on that second sock that's been haunting me . . .

Oh, it must be a good one to keep you up so late! Gigglin' at the thought of it being so impractical.
Can't wait to see your night owl/genius project. :)

Your late night was SO worth it! The bag is awesome, and it's practical...a few days out of the year anyway. Post photos on the Dumpling KAL forum also. They'll love (1,452,935) it!
