Note to Self

There are only 346 days until Christmas, so start that holiday knitting. Yes, I'm telling myself this now. Why you ask?



Because I finally finished the Tween's Christmas gift last night, that's why. 


Fortunately, I had at least one Sorin Fingerless Glove to give her on Christmas day, but then a lot of life happened and got in the way and very little knitting has happened. 



But she gave them a complete thumbs up today and hasn't even mentioned that they were quite late. 

And Magpie isn't old enough to realize that I didn't knit her the stuffed animal I wanted to knit her. I'm adding that to this year's list. I have 346 days.

And Pa's socks. Well, his birthday is in February. I think this is what happens most years. I think he knows this too.

And the ornaments I want to knit. And the little korknisse I want to knit. And that one special friend I'll want to knit for and then will need to cross off the list when I realize there is just no-way-in-heck I'll make the deadline....I'd like to make the deadline this year. 

Thus, this post. Ties in nicely with Cheekyattitude's last post about knitting a little bit everyday. More on my plans for that next time.

Happy New Year!

Christmas knitting. I hope I don't have to do it this December.

But, I did make Elefante for Husband's niece's birthday...which isn't until June. So, yay?

You give gifts like I do. I gave my niece a ball of yarn and a promise of mitts! I just finished them yesterday. And I did manage to knit 4 korknisse while in Hawaii last month!

I find birthday knitting much more agreeable than Christmas knitting.
