40 Days ’til Christmas

Projects in Progress: 6

Projects Complete: 3

Total Presents to Complete: 27

The holiday season not only comes with the expected gifts for your own loved ones…. but other’s as well.  I could go the entire rest of the year without any commissioned knits.  As soon as November hits, everywhere I turn, people are asking if I can knit them something to give as a Christmas gift.  Some of these requests are very doable and the people asking for them usually have an appreciation for knitting.  These are the commissions I accept and get excited about, since I know that at least the person paying for this item appreciates the work that goes into it.

Then there are the people who ask for something intricate, but after talking to them for a few minutes, they realize how unattainable it would be and settle for something more reasonable.  But, there are those people out there who ask for extremely time consuming items and expect me to be able to finish them in under a month and for less than $50.  When I tell them that the yarn alone would cost more than that… they look at me like I am the crazy one.

Luckily, this year I have mainly received these impossible requests, making it very easy to turn down.  To add to my personal present goals, I will only be completing two commission knits (so far), both of which are very exciting and should be easy to complete in a reasonable amount of time… I’m just hunting down the right yarn.  Which never takes too long, right?
