Sleep is totally overrated.

At least, I'm trying to convince myself of that! Little girl is not a good sleeper, and after a year of multiple night wakings, I'm exhausted. But changing her bad habits is going to be VERY difficult. And even more exhausting. My boy is such a good sleeper -- this is just so hard to deal with. I'm not a happy person when I'm tired. Oh well... more coffee, right? oh, and I should have some Dagoba chocolate coming in the next couple days. YUMMY!!! That'll help for sure!

On the knitting front, I sat down yesterday and made a list: Current Knitting Projects. It has three subcategories: Orders, Gifts, and Personal. I listed things (that I know of) that I've got to get done by Mid-October. Nine things on the orders list (obviously top priority), nine things on the gift list, and seven things on the personal list. YIKES!!!! And some of those things are "groups of things" listed as one item. Maybe I'll solve my sleeping issue by giving up sleep altogether. I might need to to finish these! ha ha

Thankfully, some of those orders will be done in the next couple of weeks. Its the gifts and personal projects that have me the most concerned -- those are more involved, or have birthday, or leaving the country, or season deadlines! ha ha

Here's a couple pics. The pants for the order set are nearly done! Here's a picture of the pants alone, and of the set. Still have to make some slippers with the solid pink from the sweater. The variegated is Berry Burst from Little Turtle Knits. I LOVE it! So pretty. And yes, the legs are darker than the body on those. They are two different skeins. I don't think it looks bad -- much better than it would have if I had just knit to the end of the first (lighter) skein and then used the second (darker) one for the last inch or two of the second leg! ha ha

Here are some wool balls I knit up on Saturday -- these are for the Hyenacart Forum giveaways. If you haven't checked out what all the buzz is over there, you should!
And last is my babywearer, which only gets worked on in the car or over at my mom's house. At this point, its still pretty portable, though it is getting more cumbersome! Its a wool/alpaca blend called Berkshire Bulky (Valley Yarns) from WEBS. Lovely stuff. Soft and warm. Of course, the days aren't going to be cool for much longer, so I'm hoping to finish it up soon. But, orders first.

That's it for me. Need to get the kids down for naps, and then sip a coffee in peace.

You have been very productive. And yes, sleep is overrated. My daughter is nearly 4 and still has bad nights.
