25 days

there are only 25 days until Christmas and i still have a lot, i mean, a lot of Christmas knitting to do. i've devised a "must be knit by this date" worksheet with how much i need to knit on each project for them to be done in time for Christmas. i've already finished two Christmas presents but i have 4 left, two of which are really very large.

I figured i need to knit 2.5 to 3 inches on the sweater every day, one shawl repeat every day, one sock repeat every day and hopefully knit up a whole darn hat during any available downtime.

this does not include the inevitable event that i will start offering to make wristlets and other small gift items for people and then my timeline will be in vain. Then i'll have to give this card as a gift.

but the worst thing of all is that the only thing i want to do is cast on a pair of socks for myself, and work on the tangled yoke cardigan (which is sitting very sad and lonely in my craft room).

bah humbug.

The impulse to knit for yourself is always great when you have gift knitting to do. Good luck!

This is why I refuse to do any holiday knitting! Good luck on finishing yours!

Stumbled upon your page and I love it. Your robin's egg hat pattern rocks. Now I just need to relearn how to knit. :)

Hey I found you through your Robin's egg hat pattern - which I"m using for some of my gift knitting! Thanks!

Good luck with getting everything done... I"m trying to keep my holiday knitting to a minimum this year. Right.
