Still with the Christmas knitting
I am now past the halfway point of Christmas Knitting Project #2 and hope to really make a dent in it today and tomorrow. Then I have Christmas Knitting Project #3, which should be pretty fast and Christmas Knitting Project #4, which is identical to Christmas Knitting Project #2, except in a different color and it doesn't have to be ready before Christmas because it stays here.
Did I mention that originally there was a Christmas Knitting Project #5? There's no way it's getting done on time. I'm currently debating wrapping it up as it is, which will free me up to work on it in front of the recipient, or keeping it a secret for next Christmas. It could be Christmas Knitting Project #1 for 2010! The only thing is, while I want to give it this year, it will make the giftee happier if it's finished when they get it, so I'll probably just hold it til next year.
Want to know what cracked me up yesterday? When I read the Yarn Harlot's post about the French Press Slippers, I had to laugh. I found that pattern wandering around Ravelry several weeks ago and I love those slippers, but I won't let myself cast on for them until I'm done with my Christmas knitting. Periodically, I go to Ravelry just to look at the finished slippers - they're so cute, I definitely understand her obsession with them and I'll be casting on for my own pair next month.
