Almost there… Knitting Cunning Hat #17

I’m almost there.

By that I mean I’m almost done with the ThinkGeek order of 18 Jayne hats. Last night at Stitch N Bitch I managed to finish off hat #16 and get all but the earflaps done on hat #17.

Of course, I ended up falling asleep while knitting, dropping two stitches while sleep-knitting and didn’t notice till I woke up about 4 rows later and wondered why I had gaps further down. I then spent about 15 minutes carefully working the dropped stitches back up until I had them fixed.

For me, the weird part was that I dropped stitches at all. Other people might think sleep knitting is weird. If you weren’t aware, my hands know my Jayne hat pattern so well that I can knit with my eyes closed and will sometimes fall asleep but not stop knitting for a few more rows. I actually can’t rely on knitting my Jayne hats to keep me awake, instead I have to switch to knitting a sock or something similar.

In any case, the dropped stitches were picked up and the hat is now only missing a bobble (which is already made but not sewn on) and the earflaps (which I just started).

Once this hat is done I only have one more to finish to complete this particular order. Then it’s on to the rush of 4. After that I will be knitting them at a slightly less frantic pace so that I can rest my hands and maybe even knit on something else every now and then.

I know, I know. How could I even think about knitting something other than Jayne hats? But I have to tell you, I’d really like to finish these socks, this sweater, these armwarmers and this bathmat.

But that’s the current state of the Jayne Hat Knitting!
