Most productive time of day?

It's a long story, but Nanny and Pappy got a new cat.  Yes, they just got Toby from a shelter a few weeks ago and that didn't work out.  Toby got re-adopted by a family with busy young children. :)  They found this kitty, Little Bit, who's owner just couldn't get his cat allergies under control.  Little Bit is going to be great!  It took her a week or so to acclimate, but is a loving, happy-to-be-held cat. :) 

Crochet Wise.... Being a productive crocheter can be hard.  What is your most productive time of day to work?  I'm not a morning person really, but my brain does seem to function better between 9am and 2pm than any other time of day. (Then it goes down from there?)  LOL.  All I know is that if I haven't been productive before 2:00 I feel like I missed my chance for the day!  How about you? Are you a late at night crocheter or a crocheter who focuses in small bursts through out the day? or a morning stitcher?  Mostly, I'm guessing that if you are like me, you stitch every free minute you can!  A few minutes here, a few minutes there... it eventually adds up.

Join me for a live chat tonight 9pm-10pm EST (Wed, 4/6/11) on Ravelry, you have to be a member of Ravelry (it's free!)  The chat bar is on the right side of the group page.  Here's the link to the group page:  Tonight, I hope you'll tell me all your hopes and dreams for crochet magazines of all kinds!

I crochet every spare chance I get, but mostly in the evenings as I work full-time. I can spend my evenings with my DH and crochet while he reads or we watch TV or listen to music. That's the time when I can get the most done.

Little Bit looks an awful lot like my pretty Shadowfax (who was my youngest son's cat until he moved in with his future fiancee). I've "adopted" Shadow (don't tell my son, that!) and she's adopted me. :)

My most productive time of day would be after midnight. Which is after lunch for us night shifters. Although it does help that the cat gets a bit sleepy then!

Me too - I crochet whenever I can fit it in. But if I really need to make progress on a project, I do my best work between 9pm and 12am. That is when my house is quiet and no one "needs" me! Except the dog sometimes needs to go out around 11pm! LOL!

Little Bit is a great name! So glad he/she found a great new home!

I mainly work just after lunch and a couple of hours after dinner but I always have a bag with a few small projects that I can take with me anywhere I go. You never know when you are going to get 5 minutes to do a little bit.

I feel the way you do about blogging / writing (that if it's not started and well under way by two then it's not happening) but I can crochet anytime of day or night ... I tend to pick more repetitive / meditative projects for late at night though and do creative stuff earlier in the day.
