Projects in Progress: 7
Projects Complete: 4
Total Presents to Complete: 26
Despite all of my planning – eventually real life takes over. Including last night, where M stayed up until 11:30 pm, when I finally gave up trying to put her to sleep and went to bed myself only to have her crawl into my bed and fall asleep in under a minute, I have had little to no knitting time this week. So I reevaluated my present list and somehow, when I was supposed to be cutting presents, I mean postponing them until people’s birthdays or next Christmas (obviously), I instead ended up only reducing by four presents, but also decided that two completed presents would not actually work as presents.
The items I decided to hold off on are for people who are already getting at least one other Christmas present this year, so they still won’t be presentless. The two completed projects were removed from the count because they are cowls made out of wool. Not superwash wool, either. I just couldn’t think of anyone on my list that would hand wash a cowl that didn’t have a wool sensitivity. That being said, they might get added back to the list when I decide to give them to M for Christmas just to add to the number of presents she gets to unwrap… clearly every three year old’s favorite part.
So the current project breakdown: 3 sweaters, 2 pairs of slippers, 6 pairs of mitts/mittens, 5 hats, 6 neck-warmers/cowls and 3 wraps/shawls. Completely more reasonable than before…………..
