82 Days until Christmas

I'm just sayin' is all......

I'm still waffling on whether or not I'm going to knit most of my holiday gifts. There are a lot of things that I really want to make for people, but I'm worried about running out of time/energy/motivation. I've made a few lists, and revised them today to what I think is most manageable/believeable.

I have one already done for The Girl* - the Light and Lacy Shawl. I had forgotten about it until I found it tonight - so check one off the list! She will be getting more than one item - she chose some yarn for a scarf and hat when our JoAnn's closed, so I'll knit that up for her, and I'm thinking about making her a fancy scarf like mine.

I'll post what pictures I can, but many of the gifts will be for some of my readers - can't give anything away now!

I think this pretty much sums it up. And if you haven't called 877-SOS-KNIT, go do it right now. I put it on speakerphone for The Man* to enjoy as well. She is just so, so funny!

*DH requested a "real" name on the blog because he thought the "darling" part of DH was "insincere." I said, well, what do you want to be called, and he replied "The Man." Hence our new names. Just so ya know.


  1. I decided to knit gifts for the following people: mother, father, bf, brother, brother's gf. That's it. And they're all small projects. The biggest one is a scarf. Even so, I'm a bit worried about carpal tunnel. I called the hotline already, but I may have to do it again soon. :)

  2. That's too funny about DH and The Man! I am trying to decide about Christmas gifts too - I am worried that I will start a bunch, and they won't be ready in time for the holidays. So, for now, it's just my nieces, one sister, and mother in law. I figure I will spread the knitting around for the year, and everyone will get a knitted item eventually.
