since when?

Since when is it December next week!?!
Christmas in just a few weeks!!!!!!
How does that just sneak up on a person!?!

After a few nights tossing and turning, worrying over my impossibly unrealistic project list, it was time to face the facts. Socks for everyone under the tree? Not going to happen! Knitted goods for a Craft Show? No chance! A finished Taiga sweater to wear to Christmas dinner? Hmmmm, maybe, maybe not.

* deep breath * Okay, okay, focus. My best plan is to prioritize, do what I can and let go of the rest. And my little reality check has left me calmer. Calm enough to knit a few more rounds on my Taiga sweater before work.

Good for you for giving it a shot! I've given up tryign to knit things for Christmas. Too much stress; knitting is supposed to be my fun!

Mwah ha ha .... I went through the exact same process a few days ago! We knitters appear to have our own brand of reality when it comes to Christmas projects, that's for sure!
