Local Designers Night at Nine Rubies!

Wow, where to even begin?! I've been back at work for a little over a month and, unfortunately, only seem to be getting more tired as time goes on instead of getting used to it. We are lucky to have a great little sleeper so it's not like I'm getting up in the middle of the night to feed Daniel, but somehow I myself have lost the ability to sleep later than about 6am, even on days I really need it. Does this ever come back? I suppose I could try to go to bed at 8pm, but I'm not convinced I'd actually fall asleep. Plus, that's when I get to knit! (And, um, watch all those trashy reality tv shows I've become addicted to since they are all my tired mama brain can handle.)

But quite a bit has been going on in my knitting and crafting life and I feel like I have a big backlog of posts and things to tell you all. Let's hope I can get them all out before they become completely irrelevant!

So first things first. Who's planning on going to Interweave Knitting Lab in San Mateo next weekend? I'm bummed not to be taking any classes, but my knitting gals and I will be roaming the marketplace floor on Saturday.

AND, on Friday night, Nine Rubies (a yarn shop and sponsor of the event) will be hosting a Local Designers' Night from 5-7pm. I'll be there along with Carrie Sullivan of Irish Girlie Knits, chatting and displaying our designs. If you're in the area, please come say hi! (Also, how cool does this exhibit look?)

See you there?

First, yes the ability to sleep in does return, but not for a while. However, I've not lost my motherhood found love for trashy candy TV shows, since they require no thought and are perfect for knitting. It's easy to pay half attention. The current fave is Halloween Wars on Food Network. And Fashion Hunters on Bravo. Both worth a look see...

Congrats on designer night! Wish I could come and check it out - looks very cool, you have a great partner, and I'd love to see all of your stuff in person

Alas, I'll be here in front of the TV!

Sounds like a great event! Hooray for Daniel being a good little sleeper -- I hope you manage to get back on a good sleeping schedule, too.

Oh, trashy TV... I can't handle much of it, but I do love HGTV.

I can relate to being tired all the time. It helps to make getting 8 hours sleep a priority and even if you don't feel tired go to bed earlier. My trashy TV indulgence is Survivor and I've watched that show since the beginning and I still like it - must say something1 about me!

Have a wonderful time at the Designer's Night Event ~ wish I were close enough to attend!!!

Very cool! That looks like it'll be a very fun evening. I'd love to come, but there seems to be a continent between your place and mine :)
