I’m curious. What have you been working on lately? A sweater for winter? A pile of cozy hats for Christmas gifts? Or are you knee-deep into a crazy lace shawl?
I’m well on my way through my Christmas knitting, but I still can’t really tell you about it (because several recipients of said Christmas knitting read the blog). Here’s a totally-useful picture of one of my current projects. I started really early this year, but I’m still on the edge of running out of time- I can feel it already. But, suppose it wouldn’t be the “holiday season” without the feeling of at least a little impending doom.
Anyway, I’m curious. Am I the only one chugging away on Christmas knitting? What are you making? I’d love to hear about your projects (or see pictures! If you send over pictures, they might end up on the blog, too!), so comment below with what you’re working on.
Oops! I totally spaced, you guys. I was going to give you a 100-day warning about Christmas, but… I forgot.
So this is your warning.
81 days until Christmas.I’m so sorry. I know it’s early- Halloween isn’t eve here yet. But, we’re knitters, and Christmas Knitting is our Superbowl- you can never prepare for it too much. So get out your Christmas giving lists, dig through your stash, and start trolling Ravelry for good gift ideas.
Warning! Warning! Alert! Alert!
This is your 6-month warning. Christmas is in 6 months. Begin your plans now. (Or wait until mid-November, like I usually do.)That is all. You have been warned.
(Sung to the tune of “Christmas is Coming”)
Christmas is coming
My list is getting full.
Please knit a sweater
From my bag of wool.
If you cannot knit a sweater,
A simple hat will do.
If you cannot knit a simple hat,
Then god bless you!
(In case it wasn’t clear, this is my round-about way of reminding you that we have three months until Christmas. I’ve got to get knitting!)
