Welcome to Nocturnal Knits!
Am I right or am I right when I say that everyone and their cat has a blog these days? (You know I’m right.) Well, I’ve decided it’s nigh time for me to start one of my own. But I’m too paranoid (and lazy) to post all kinds of personal information about myself online. So instead of a regular blog, this will be my knitting blog.
I knit like a fiend. I was once interviewed by Interweave Knits Magazine when I was one of the resident knitters on my college campus. My tendency to knit in the middle of the night — in fact, to do everything in the middle of the night — led to the journalist bestowing upon me the moniker of the “late-night knitter.” Hence “Nocturnal Knits.”
I really do knit in the middle of the night. I’m not sure why I’m nocturnal, but for now I’m able to pull it off. As a graduate student with a part-time web-design job, I can basically sleep whenever I choose. Lately I’ve been choosing to sleep between 6 a.m. and 2 p.m. My family used to think there was something seriously wrong with me, but they’ve come to accept my nocturnalism. It’s not that I don’t like the daytime or the morning — I seriously just don’t feel like sleeping until the early morn. Apparently there’s a name for this: Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome. Who knows why I’m like this. My dad grew up in Transylvania, maybe I’m part-vampire. A knitting semi-vamp. That’s me.
Regardless, I hope you enjoy my blog. God only knows how you found it in the first place, but if you’re here drop me a note! I’ll be posting images of my knitting projects as they progress. Stay posted.
