Okay, I know that I said I was only going to make two Christmas gifts this year. Well, I need to rephrase my plans. I am only going to knit two Christmas gifts that will be given on Christmas day. I might make a few others. Oh yeah, I might have also modified the projects as well.
Even though my mother has never shown any interest in anything hand knit before, this year she wants a scarf. So her scarf has been made and is packed. My daughter is also getting a sweater, which would be done by now, except that she needed a hat, and both she and her brother needed mittens for our trip to North Carolina for Thanksgiving. The mittens and hat were done on time, but, my husband went to the LYS with me to get the yarn for thheem, and found some (really beautiful hand-painted) yarn that he needed to have made into a scarf, or he might just die (at least he has goo taste in yarn).
Then there are the other hand made Christmas gifts....
So far the amount that needs to be done still seems very doable. The sweater is about 75% complete, machine sewing take no time, and my husband doesn't expect his scarf to be done on time. Only the accumulating amount of cooking is beginning to seem daunting.
