Try knitting darker, less vibrant colors before bed, with simple patterns.

Otherwise, I hear lack of sleep builds character!

Darker colors don't help! When I was working on that navy blue cotton sweater, I got just as energized as I did working on the light colored caps! I think it's the thrill of seeing a long straight piece of yarn become a piece of fabric or a cap. (I remember getting the same thrill from sewing...but knitting is MUCH more portable.) Heck, I even got energized by that washcloth!!! It's the thrill of creation, I'm sure!

It IS the thrill of creation - my favorite quote, from the musical Rent by Jonathon Larson:

The opposite of war isn't peace - it's creation!
