Holiday Greetings to you! Not much productive gift knitting going on over here, unfortunately. I do have a couple of projects that I knit up for my daughter, but I'll have to keep them under wraps for now. ;) The road to my knitted Christmas gifts is always paved with good intentions, but procrastination, a frustrating pattern and the rehearsals and five performances of daughter's dance school's production of Nutcracker slow things down quite a bit.
The plan was to knit gloves for my husband (with five full fingers), hats for my nieces and nephew (although this pattern hasn't been set in stone) and some kind hat for my sister. The reality is I hope to finish one glove for my husband tonight, and then crank out some snowball buddies for my nieces and nephew tomorrow. (I won't see them until Thursday). Looks like I need to hand out some IOUs. Good thing Knit Picks was kind enough to provide some printable ones that are ready to go.
In the past, I have stressed and stayed up all night to try to finish an insurmountable quantity of knitting projects, always feeling defeated because I haven't managed my time well. I smell a new year's resolution....
This year, I'm trying not to drive myself crazy and enjoy things for once. Not really productive, but a bonus for my sanity in trying to get through the holidays happily.
I hope you have been more successful with your knitted gifts than I this year. If you've knit any great projects, I'd love to hear about them.
I wish you all a happy, healthy and blessed holiday! I'm off to ice gingerbread trees!
