It’s grey and gloomy here today, and I’m having a tough time getting myself motivated to do anything. My mind is as foggy as the weather, and I haven’t done anything remotely “blog worthy” in days. I’ve thought about posting one of the meme’s currently running around blogland, but I can’t think of 10 knitterly things you don’t know about me, and choosing my top ten pieces of music would be impossible, so let’s start another discussion; Do you knit for Christmas? Have you started yet? What (if you can tell) will you be knitting this year? What sorts of things are on you knitting wish list?
I’ll start (smile). I sometimes knit for Christmas, though usually it’s a project that I’ve been working on for some time and just happen to finish around Christmas. Last year, I decided that new Christmas stockings were in order and I knit 6 before it was all over. This year the only Christmas knitting on my list is a pair of mittens. One of the resolutions I made (for lack of a better word) was to do NO MORE deadline knitting, and for the most part, I’ve stuck to that mantra. Yes, I have done a couple KAL’s, like the Knitting Olympics and the Trek Along, but aside from the Olympics, there was no hard and fast deadline.
As for this years X-mas mittens, I have not started them yet, but they should be fairly quick as they are a simple pattern.
Now, I must get going, little dude just called and wants me to join him for lunch……it’s pretty hard to say no to a 3 year old. Plus, there’s a camping trip to get ready for 🙂
