Reassessment

The Christmas crunch is on, and even though I have an ever-growing cumulus of items, it is still short.

In order to try and overcome this short-fall, I have decided to put aside MY needs, for the needs of Christmas gifts (I know, very big of me, right?). Therefore, my currently in progress sweater and retreat socks (which I have yet to show you...) have to be put on the backburner. Humph. I really want that sweater to be done.

I need to churn out a few more pairs of socks, a couple of hats, and various other small items (mostly...).

These are coming along nicely and will be sent to my Grandma to warm her constantly cold feet.

This is my summer shipment of STR my currently only unworked skein of STR from the Sock Club; at least is was until I received my November shipment on Friday. But that yarn will have till wait till after Christmas too.

I also finished this sweater,



....slated for my boys' new cousin, due to arrive some time around Christmas, hence the gingerbread man buttons.

Back to the needles.

As J. said, December 25 waits for no knitter. No matter how slow they are....

Very Christmassy! I love the buttons.

And small gifts (and knitters) are the best, don't you think?

Good work on the cumulus. Small is the only way to get done by the 25th - though I'm sure some one of mine is getting their present with the needles still in!

Impressive work T! I need to take your advice and put a few of my things on the back burner. I'll give it a go!

Excellent work, T! I'm totally dying of laughter from the J quote - so true. And I am a slow knitter...

Excellant work my friend (am especially fond of the BSJ, but I am biased).

Oh, my sock count is up to 5! WooHoo look at me go...
