Late Night Joy Riding Is Not Recommended

It has been a wonderful week as everyday I have enjoyed awaiting for new treasures to arrive in the mailbox!  The only problem is deciding which one to play with first!

This beauty is from www.Brainsbarn.com ... it's a sweet 8" long crochet hook that weighs just a mere 4 grams that is a size 4mm (size G in the American sizing).  The moment I saw it on their website, I knew I had to have it! 

Feeling restless, and in the wee hours of the morning, I could resist no longer.  I took it out for it's maiden test drive last night, and what a sweet ride it was!  My co-pilot was Moda Dea's "Washable Wool" -- a fiber I had received from the CGOA National Conference Goodie Bag.  Moda Dea and I went full speed ahead, throwing caution into the wind.  We were joyriding; enjoying our time very-much-so together! 

Before I knew it, we skidded slightly out of control; my stitch count was off!  It was six in the morning and I had yet to get any shuteye!  Sleep deprivation and crochet certainly don't mix; haven't I admitted to this before?  Fortunately this is crochet -- ripping out work is something we can fearlessly do without the need of a maintenance crew or having to file a police report.  I'll be back cruising with my new hook in no time flat!  :)
