Last night I had my first dream (that I remember) about knitting. I was in some kind of dating game show contest and the participants had to knit something for each to prove their worthiness as future husbands/wives. Some guy had knitted a beautiful pair of lacey fingerless gloves already, so I was way intimidated.

We got to pick out our patterns though. I chose a pair of mittens that could become fingerless mitts by flipping the top. The last thing I remember asking is, "are you sure I can work these up on two needles?" (I haven't done any circular or dpn knitting yet, but will soon Smiley  )

Actually, I would really like to knit a pair of these on two needles now that I think about it.

It's not really a dream, but several times I have realized exactly how to do something (like provisional cast on, which I have never been able to do) JUST before falling asleep. I always think, "I should get up and try this." But I always fall asleep right then.

And then, in the morning, I'm never able to remember how it's done.

Yep. I've had a few knit-related dreams.  One involved some kind of quest for the ideal yarn in some very unusual places - like in the wood, on the beach... I've also dreamt of FOs.  I never have enough of a memory of the garment to actually know if it was totally made up in my dream world or similar to something I'd seen while awake.

I dreamt once that I was at work and we were out of this one particular, very expensive piece of electronic-ish equipment that we sell/service/rent out.  I told the guys that I could probably knit one for them and set out to do that.  In the dream it was accepted that my knit piece of electronic-ish equipment would be completely interchangeable with the real... 

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

My first intarsia project gave me dreams.  It was a scarf for my sister with a pirate motif on the ends, and I used to have dreams about all the loose ends I would have to weave in.  The scarf would become an octopus/squid thingy, and the ends would all float around and torment me as I tried to weave it in.

That ^ sounds like me! I frequently have dreams of long complicted quests for the perfect yarn... it happens everytime I'm looking for yarn for a new project...

I do, but my knitting dreams never really have a plot - it's just me going through the motions.

I had a dream with a favourite movie star of mine and all I cared about was the great knitted items he had on...  Wink

My friends claim I need therapy. Or knitters rehab.

Last night I had a dream about what I'm knitting now, and how to fix some shaping that looks a little ugly.  Well, it was more "rip out what you've done on the shaping and do it this way instead!", so I did that this morning, and it worked Cheesy  I used to get that when I was studying A-level pure maths - I'd dream the solution to a problem and it would work!  Shame it doesn't happen as often now.  I call them my flashes of brilliance, because once I've done it, it kind of slips out of my mind and I can't remember why it worked (more so with the maths).

And I dream about yarn sometimes.  But mostly about garments being too small and people laughing at me when I wear them, in spite of their size problem.  But that is pretty close to real life right now (particularly after Christmas)!

I am so boring I think people should be interested in me.
