Stick a Fork in ME!

'Cause the Christmas knitting is done! Woo Hoo!!!!!

Some random photos for you - piles of completed gifts.

All have been wrapped (except for the ones going to Indiana with me, as I can't wrap them due to TSA security regulations), and the ones that needed to be mailed are gone!

It is SUCH a relief to have these done! And I have to say that I have NO desire to add anything else to the list. You can see the complete list in the sidebar - 44(!) things I knitted! Wowzers.

I have no expectations of recreating this event in any future years - hopefully I'll be employed next Christmas, so my knitting time will be very diminished. Although I did do a great deal of this in late October/early November. Perhaps if I start now for next year.....um, no. Love you guys, but it's time for me!

But first I must get those other projects off the needles - the baby cardi and the Leaf Lace Socks. The sockpal socks do not count toward the "done by '06" list since I just started them.

I've gotten the back, both fronts and 1 1/2 sleeves done on the baby cardi - one more 1/2 sleeve and then it will be seaming time! I've also made some great progress on the Leaf Lace socks - love this pattern. More about it tomorrow!

Why was I absent from the blog all weekend? Hmmm, this might have had something to do with it.

That's right, I'm a master! I'm not sure it's helping though, as I apparently did not get the great job I interviewed for - I never got a phone call, but she wanted the person to start today, so I guess I'm out. C'est la vie. Something better will come along.

Maybe a completed baby cardi tomorrow? One finished sock?


  1. YAY!!! Congrats! I'm scared of Grad school because it means taking exams to get in. Bah! Besides, the thing I got my degree in is not the thing I'd want to go to Grad school for, so I probably won't go.

  2. CONGRATULATIONS on finishing your masters!!! That is just as impressive as all your crazy (44!?!) Christmas knitting!! I'm bowled over by both accomplishments. What an incredible accomplishment to finish grad school! It's slow going for me right now (all I see is tunnel!), but I'll get there, even if it takes me till I'm 40 to finish this stinking masters. :-P Sorry to hear about the job situation, but something better will definitely come along. And it's totally their loss, too, so there. ;-) CONGRATULATIONS, again, to you, Jenn, on all your awesome accomplishments!!! :-)

  3. Congratulations on all your accomplishments. That's quite a list!

  4. Congratulations!

  5. congrats on all fronts! :)

    I hope the blue cable knit hat is for me! I like it!!!

  7. Congrats! Is it strange that I'm more impressed by the 44 holiday gifts than by the masters'? I mean, we all know you're smart . . .

  8. Woo-hoo! Yay for you!

    You definitely win the Holiday Knitter of the Year award, BTW. I don't know of anyone who's done anywhere near as much. Do you sleep ever? LOL! :)
