You’ve fought a tough battle. You’ve spent your winter (and probably a good chunk of your fall) working on your Christmas knitting. It’s now time to rest.
If you’re an amazing go-getter, maybe you’re already done. You can wrap up your gifts, pour yourself a nice glass of eggnog and take a nice Christmas nap, knowing that you’ve completed everything you need to do.
If you’re a human being, you’ve probably got a pile or two of half-finished projects still hanging around.In that case, I’ve got a little poem for you to use on Monday morning, explaining what’s happened.
Rudolph has his reindeer
And Santa has his elves.
There’s only one of me, alas
Just knitting by myself.
I tried to get everything done
And bind off all my rows,
But Christmas comes just when it comes
And that’s my source of woe.
I haven’t finished up your scarf.
Your sweater has one sleeve.
I haven’t completed your present
Though it’s late on Christmas Eve.
I beg of you forgiveness.
Let me knit the last few rows.
As soon as your gift is bound off,
I’ll deliver it wrapped with a bow.
And, I’ve made it into a nice, printable format, so you can print it out tonight, wrap it up and give yourself the weekend off.
You can get the printable version here: Christmas Printable 2017
Enjoy your weekend!
