So recently, I was making the Yarn Harlot's one row handspun scarf and was knitting pretty obsessively because I had a deadline, and in my infinite wisdom, I decided to knit the thing on teeny tiny needles.  Undecided

We went on a day trip to Yellowstone and I pretty much knitted the entire time. After about 10 hours of knitting, I fell asleep on the way back still knitting... and continued to knit for several rows until I was woken by my head falling forward during a turn. When we got back to the hotel I looked it over and obviously I hadn't kept with the pattern at all... but the scarf was VERY forgiving of mistakes, and I was so amazed that I had actually knitted while ASLEEP that I kept the wonky rows in there.

It was so bizarre because I was even dreaming - but nothing about knitting or even my hands moving.

Has anyone else done something that weird?  Tongue

Wow, that's really amazing.  I can imagine dreaming that I'm knitting, obsessing over a project.  But actually doing it?  Nope, when I'm asleep, I'm out cold, no moving. 

I am very impressed!

I haven't knitted in my sleep, but when I was younger, I cut my hair in my sleep. I woke up one morning and when I came out into the kitchen, everyone in my family was looking at me with mouths agape... then they started laughing at me... I had no idea that I had butchered my hair. In my room, there was a pile of hair and scissors. Of course, it happened a few weeks before the start of school... which made it all the more horrifying.

Nothing to do with knitting, but I apparently talk very educatedly in my sleep. If someone tries to wake me up, I've been told that I will reply back and not sound the least little bit tired. I'll say things like "Yeah, I'll be up a bit." or "No, I'll just be down for the night.".
This seriously sucks sometimes. I know once I asked my grandmother to wake me up after an hour because I had knitting on a deadline to do within a few days, so I had to use all available time. She apparently tried 4 TIMES to wake me up until I told her I would be down for the night.

It was really bad... I had basically hacked the whole front. My bangs were centimeters long and extended too far to the sides in what looked like a cross between a mullet and a bowl cut... my school picture was so lame that year.
