I'm trying not to think about it, but that tends to be my problem. Not thinking about holiday knitting until maybe December 10! And then it is mom's birthday and oops....no gift!
Remember this yarn from last year?
One of those skeins was intended to be knit up for mom's birthday gift. Thank goodness she is understanding.
The first day of November and I can't help but think about the holidays ahead....Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's. I love this time of year and I really want to take the time to enjoy it. And one of those ways is to perhaps re-think holiday knitting. Is it possible to be realistic about my holiday knitting goals? Paired with my designing goals?
What do you guys plan to do for the upcoming gift giving season? Please don't tell me you are already done.
I'll be honest. I learned a few years ago not to go crazy with the holiday knitting. However, my family really enjoys their knitted items. I do have a few extra Fine Fellas that can be a gift or two. But I think it is time to start making a proper list so that it doesn't sneak up on me.
Another question....are any of you doing NaBloPoMo? November is National Blog Posting Month and I've always wanted to try it. A few people were mentioning it today on Twitter and although I haven't completely decided to do it, I did post today. I think I may attempt to post everyday in November....we'll see. Anyone else?
