Projects in Progress: 7
Projects Complete: 6
Total Presents to Complete: 23
I’m struggling. Not with the idea that I have 17 projects left to complete. I cannot seem to find the time to knit M’s Christmas presents. I want her to actually be surprised! How do you manage to surprise a three year old that seemingly never sleeps or plays by herself. And she is aware. So aware. Each time she sees me with a new project she asks what I’m making and who it’s for. I started her mitts last night, when I thought she was sleeping… only to have her walk into my room half asleep. I was able to quickly throw it under the blanket before taking her back to her bed. Even just a glimpse of the hot pink yarn would give away that it was finally a present for her.
Since she seems to be refusing to sleep, I am forced to only work on her presents while we are not together.. which leaves me only my lunch break. I was hoping to have both mitts done tonight, but I only got through the first half of a mitt today. I might risk pulling it out to finish a mitt and just having other projects next to me to distract her with if she decides sleeping is only for adults – which tends to be her mantra. That is, all adults except, well, me.
