Night Float Craftiness

Vacation is over. Sad. And I am back to work on night float. 6pm to 8am. Yahoo. I've been lucky, though and have been able to sleep at least 5 hours most nights. This has allowed me to partake in some zombie-like craftiness during the day time. Again, yahoo.

Exhibit A:

More hand-stenciled onesies with a senior resident on night float. I love the sheep. I'm not sure what motivated me to make that giant red chicken. I must have been delirious. And yes, more baby fever. It's like a broken record around here.

Exhibit B:

Box bags! With this tutorial. The bag turned out smaller than I expected, but I am really happy with it. The tutorial is great and easy to follow, and now I have a handy dandy bag to hold my works in progress in my larger bag that I carry every day. This every day bag is like the pit of despair - random knitting projects, knitting books, toothbrush and dental necessities for when I am on call, snacks for when I get randomly hungry. This little box bag will now keep knitterly items away from my dental floss and potato chips. Yahoo.

Also, I am in love with the book in the background. New Pathways for Sock Knitters by Cat Bordhi. If you are a sock knitter, it is a must have. For sure.

On Thursday, I start inpatient internal medicine. I have not done a medicine rotation in over a year. If you feel like it, send kind thoughts the way of my patients in the hope that I don't harm them in my ignorance.

You never stop learning do you? How wonderful is that? I'm so happy that you keep sharing your works on your blog. I really like the bag you made, nice for your knitting projects. I have been working on your quilt. I'm still pricking my fingers but not badly. Much love to you both.

I can't believe you publicly admitted that you sleep an average of 5 hours per night...while on night float. I'm lucky if I sleep that much a night when I'm not working!!!
Super cute onesies.
I love that Cat Bordhi book too, but always forget about it. Have you made any of the more interesting socks?

Hi to G. Lo, H&M, and Asiyah!

Hey Mandy! I picked a good residency - and I did I mention the 2.5 hours of protected sleep time that's built into our call nights at the university hospital? Right now, I am getting me butt kicked on inpatient internal medicine. I miss my psych schedule. And the socks - I've started making the dragon socks, so cute. I actually want to make all the socks in that book!
