There's something really wrong with me.
Last Friday, I took an early leave from school and went to KL, skipping 2 days of school and just got back yesterday night. I was really tired, and yet, I can't sleep until 2 am. Now, it's 3:28 AM and I just took my shower. I woke up, thinking that I'm late (I usually wake up at 5:45 AM sharp). Strange thing is, I did look at my phone (aka my alarm) and saw that it's 3 something, but it still didn't occur to me until I came out from the shower. Now my hair is all wet and there's no way I can get back to bed. This of course means another sleepy day at school.
During my trip to KL, I didn't buy any yarn, but I did get these.

Last week my order of Rowan 4-ply cotton for Lucky arrived, and I was really disappointed. The colour was so not-me and dull (the colour is Allure) and the texture was not something I would expect to be getting from Rowan too. But since I ordered 10 skeins of them, I guess I should just knit with them anyway. I made a swatch for Lucky, I hope this would work out and that I have enough motivation to finish it. Well, I ordered some Noro Kureyon and Silk Garden too, love 'em. I'll knit the Spring Armwarmers from SnBN with the Kureyon.

On the knitting front, I've been trying to knit something from my own design using Jaeger Siena. It's been growing really slowly, considering I started off with 300 stitches on my needle and a gauge of 7sts/1". I'm in a real need of some FO, realising I haven't had any for quite a long time and looking at other knitters blogs to see great FOs at once. Maybe I should start knitting a dish cloth.

Yuvee, maybe you had a drink with caffeine and that is normally what heppens to me. I don't drink cofee, but some strong tea or soft drinks that have caffeine can take away my sleep.
BTW, I like that book Knit Lit. There is a second one, Knit Lit (too). Have fun with your books and knitting!

hey lotsa great books there. Looking forward to see your Lucky too. I haven't had the chance to get hold of the SnB Nation book. But saw lots of other knitters knitted the same garment. Lovely pattern.
