Short and sweet… And sleepy

So, I’ve been working on a hat for my future mother-in-law for the past few weeks, and for some reason it is just dragging.

(I’m currently knitting away at a soccer game my fiancĂ©e is coaching… never mind the turf!)

I really like how it is turning out, and this is my first time ever trying a new stitch to create a pattern. I’m excited to be trying something new.

(I can’t wait to see this after blocking!)

And yet, for some reason, every time I pick it up and get my needles working my eyes begin to get droopy and my fingers work slower and then boom… I’m ready for nap time. And so, it’s progressing pretty slowly. (Sorry, Marilyn!) Maybe by the time it is warm out again I’ll be finished. :-/

Does anyone else have this problem ever? And how do you work through it?!
