I'm in trouble. Because, really, I only have three holiday gifts to knit this year. Fingerless gloves for mom's birthday (this week....I count it as holiday knitting), socks for Lil' Snowboarder (she asked Santa for more socks?!! How can I resist?), and a hat for Snowboarder (you all know that that will be gifted sometime in January or February....he seems to have learned that his hats get bumped for just about anything else....he has too many anyways!).
And progress to date on these three projects. NONE. yes, I said, it. NONE. I'm trying to crank out a design or two before the holidays. I'm thinking positive though because I have two weekend days to knit PLUS three days off next week. Totally doable, right? Its not like I have any Christmas shopping, or holiday socializing, or baking to do right? hehehe
Elizabeth D's comment made me feel not so alone in the holiday knitting denial. She said, "Sleep? People sleep in December?" She wins a Cotty pattern for that :) I came home tonight from work and told my sister I was tired. She said it was because I've been staying up too late in the knitting sweat shop. So agree.
Thank you all for the blogiversary comments! The winners of the Cotty socks pattern are:
Please contact me at irishgirlieknits AT gmail DOT com and I'll send the pattern to you via email.
Let's kickoff day 2 of the giveaway with 4 free copies of Blackberry Brambles! That pattern always makes me think of baking, and since I have some holiday baking to do, enter the contest by leaving a comment of either your favorite recipe this time of year (doesn't necessarily have to be holiday related) or your favorite thing to bake or what you are craving right this second (me....a cupcake...there, I said it.).
Oh, and in my defense in regards to the lack of my holiday knitting thus far, I provide you with evidence of putting holiday fun before holiday knitting. Me and Lil' Guy at the Christmas Tree Farm this past Sunday (that should read...bouncy house, train ride, petting zoo, pony rides...ways to tire out Lil' Guy!).
I guess it also serves as evidence of what I've been knitting instead of holiday gifts (uh-oh). My new Winter Wonder Cowl pattern should be ready soon!
Happy Holiday Knitting (or not!)!!
