Working crazy hours can make sleep even harder to get than normal. Upon the recommendation of a co-worker I decided to try a sleep mask. (I totally thought I was just throwing my money away, but thought, what the heck!! I need sleep!) So I bought an inexpensive one from a big box store. OMG!! I was transformed into a happy sleepy girl. This really made a difference for me.
Knitter brain engaged now, I started thinking…..”are there any knitted sleep mask patterns out there?” Whoa Nelly are there!
