It is Saturday morning and I'm baking for my night shift tonight. I love baking treats to bring but I'm always a little down too because it means I won't get to go near my knitting for the next 3 days or so. Especially this knitting! This is my Crocus Blanket I'm knitting for our eventual baby stash out of some bee-YEW-tiful merino/silk/cashmere yarn I got on clearance from WEBS. It is a soft yellow yarn with subtle pale mustard mottles. The photo doesn't do it justice. It is a fingering weight single and has been a pleasure to work with. I can't say as much about the pattern...

I spent all of last night awake on call and got to stay home the entire night. I'm such a homebody brat that I would rather sit up working on projects and forfeit a 12 hour night shift of pay. We are having our Christmas next weekend and last night was one of those times when I felt like I had way more money than time. I finished up so many things though and have a great sense of accomplishment. As much as I love being home on call, I hate being on call because I nervously eye the clock all night and wait for the phone to ring. It is good to keep busy or otherwise I'd have gray hair and a twitch by the end of the shift!
