My hands are sore, my eyes strained and there are still three gifts and 15 days to go. Yikes!
I do not have any new pretty pictures to add because what had been finished is boring or a gift. The boring is a black ribbed hat for my Dad. It really only comes out looking like a black blob, so no pictures.
As time is catching up with me I am still under the delusion that I could possibly finish all this knitting before Christmas. I figure that if Dad’s hat is done by Saturday that gives me 12 days to complete the last 2 knitted gifts for the year. That is doable, right? (Please don’t mention that I am also planning on finishing a pair of socks before then too. The socks at already 2/3 done from 3 yrs ago, so not really another project to count.) This time frame does not take into account my poor hands. I usually knit as much as I like without any pain (please no hate mail, I am just lucky I guess) but the last two weeks have done me in. My hands are throbbing at the end of the day. If I were a smart individual I might just quit, but I am not, so the knitting goes on. Another round of ibuprofen anyone?
I know this is the most interesting blog post ever, but I thought I would at least check in. I strongly encourage people to check out the blogs to the right. They are all good reads.
