Sometimes I sleep

And sometimes when I sleep, I dream.
And sometimes when I dream I solve problems.
Last night I did all 3!!
I hadn't slept in 2 nights (up every. single. hour.) and I was so exhausted last night that I barely made it through Heroes (but WOW, what a show!), then went to bed. Those of you who, like me, celebrate insomnia know that being tired doesn't necessarily mean you will sleep. But, last night, I laid my wittow head down, and went to sleep. (OK, there MAY have been some chemical agents involved, but no laws were broken, I swear!)
The next thing I know, it's 2:30! AM!! I'd been asleep!! Not only that, I solved a knitting problem that I've been obsessing over for about a week.
You see, I want to knit something light-weight that I can warm in the microwave, and either place inside gloves or gauntlets, or just put on my hand and continue knitting while my poor, aching thumbs get some much deserved heat and comfort. (Hate the arthritis, but what a knitter to do???)
Last night, I came up with 2, count 'em, TWO!!! Ideas! WOO HOO!!!!! There will be more later, cause I'm still working out the details, but I couldn't wait to get up this morning and get the yarn and needles (I even dreamed which yarn! LOL) and start. One is harder than the other, but much more versatile, and I think will work better. Either way, I think I'm becoming a knitting designer. LOL How freakin funny is that?!?!?!?!?!
Bonus cat picture! Since I don't have knitting to post, I'll post Karma instead:

Sleep AND yarn dreams?! Wow. A double bonus. Looking forward to seeing the ideas worked up.

I am so very, very grateful to not have insomnia. Sleep is one of those things that I just have to have or everyone suffers. I'm so glad that sleep found you and that the dreams brought some good ideas with them!

I can so appreciate the insomnia giving way to good ideas, or at least helping you to think things through. I don't have it often but when I do, I try to put it to good use. And talking to the cat at the end of the bed helps too!
