That's it. That's the last of the Giftmas yarn to be knit up. I have a swatch, I have a plan, and it will be done in time.
Mind you, there's still a couple of other things to do-a button sewn on here, a face embroidered onto a stuffy there. But this is the last actual knitting that needs to be done by Giftmas. (I'm also trying to see if I can get my Drift finished in time to wear, but that's technically less of a priority than actual gift knitting.)
I also have a pile of non-knitting stuff that needs doing. I have eighteen quarts of cocoa mix to make, and for those of you who struggle with conceptualizing volume like I do, that's about half a grocery cart of ingredients. It's a lot. I also have chex mix to make, and cookies to bake, and a new little flick is coming out this weekend that my family wants to go to.
What about you all? Have a lot left to go on your holiday to-do list?
Good luck! I decided this year to avoid (most) gift knitting and am buying all of my gifts. I don't do that often and it's weird - I'm regretting that plan now. Granted, I decided that community knitting was more important to me this year, and after 3 years of gift knitting for everyone, I think they need a break from it!ReplyDelete
Granted, I'm celebrating Christmas in April this year (can't get home in December this year), so I'll probably wind up knitting stuff for them anyways. :D
Good luck with your gift knitting! I hope you get everything finished!
I'm so impressed with how on top of your gift knitting you are! And envious of everyone that you gifting the hot coca mix to, I love edible gifts like that. Thoughtful and totally useful.ReplyDelete
You are an inspiration with your gift knitting! I need to remember about the hot cocoa mix as a gift next year.ReplyDelete
I am very impressed! I'm still in the thick of it... A lot of Christmas knitting plans were changed! But I think I can get the revised list done :) good luck with the cocoa mix!ReplyDelete
you can do it!!! Lovely yarn :)ReplyDelete
