I fell asleep last night while knitting in bed -- trying to finish a
329-stitch row of purls. Woke up at 1:30, but roused myself only enough to
flick off the light and go back to sleep. When the alarm went off at 6 my
partner mumbled something about some knitting in the bed. The project had
spent the night between us!
You've never seen me jump out of bed so fast, with visions of unraveling in my head. Luckily only about 15 stitches had come off the needles, and getting things straightened out wasn't too much of a problem, except for trying to focus my bleary eyes on it.
I guess it's fortunate that it's summer time -- when we try to sleep far apart from each other during the warm nights. A wintertime mishap could have resulted in a felted mess. ;-)
They say that three-ways tend to unravel things. I intend to keep my knitting from coming between us.
