What is it about this time of year that clouds our minds? I mean, any other time of the year I know that completing 7 pairs of socks, 3 shawls and 2 felted bags in a month is an insane plan. BUT, When Dec. 1 hits...all of a sudden I think it is do-able! What is up with that?
I even tried to help myself by starting the Holiday Kal-Cal in order to help me get started early on my knitting and crochet. Did that help? Ironically, it helped all the other participants who are making such wonderful things but me...I have only completed ONE thing!!!! HOLY COW, I don't understand! This was supposed to help me and instead I just feel more stressed than ever because now I have not only myself to who knows what I have done and not done BUT I have all the HOLIDAY ELVES holding me accountable.
What have I done? LOL!
Actually, I am really enjoying the Holiday Kal-Cal. Talk about really giving me a kick out of my comfort zone. There are some WONDERFUL things getting made and now, I WANT TO MAKE EVERYTHING!!! When do I get the time? *deep sigh*
Right now, I am working on my sisters socks (Lion Brand Wool-Ease on size 3 DPNs) and need to cast on for my brothers tonight!!! I have the yarn already; Mirasol Peru Hacho 100% Dyed Marino Wool #307..OMG...I am in LOVE with this yarn!!! It is a thicker weight yarn so the socks will be made on size 5 dpn's so I should have the socks done by tomorrow night.
I have been purchasing a lot of GREAT yarns lately with my 150 dollar gift card from Knit Knack! Does this mean I am beginning to become a Yarn Snob? Say it ain't so! No, I don't think I am because I still see the usefulness of good old acrylic.
That is if I can stay focused on them. I am having a serious case of project A.D.D! Usually, I don't have that problem. IF I am working on a project THAT I LIKE I tend to stay true to it. But for some odd reason, again, it is the Christmas Intoxication, I start to think that as long as I have the project on the needles or hook that means the project will get done in time. (don't laugh...this is possible)
Sidetrack Sally: My dumb computer is a piece of crap...every time I pull up the Kodak Easy Share software the computer freezes and I can't get any dang pictures on here. Hopefully I can get some pictures on here before I post this...
Okay, I am officially going to make my Christmas List since it literally is 14 days away!!! The order is the planned order to make things. GOOD LUCK TO ME!!
