36 Days ’til Christmas

Projects in Progress: 6

Projects Complete: 5

Total Presents to Complete: 30

I seem to have finally hit my stride! Another project done and another cast on.. and they are even for family members.

The hat is a simple 1×1 rib watch cap with a three-needle bind off after a few decrease rows.  I love the colorway since it is a manly brown, but with enough variation to create interest… for me to knit. I cast on a 2×2 rib cowl with the remainder of this yarn to either go to the same recipient or another. Either way, I felt like today was a win.   Only 25 presents to go!

41 Days ’til Christmas

Projects in Progress: 6

Projects Complete: 3

Total Presents to Complete: 26

Do you feel it yet? Is the pressure on? It certainly is here! So how am I coping with the fact that I only have 41 days to complete my goals? That’s simple: I am COMPLETELY enjoying everything Christmas.  Music, check.  Movies, check. Eggnog and hot apple cider, check and check.  I might be making the season longer than “normal” people do, but why not cherish and enjoy it as much as possible?

One of my favorite holiday pass times – just ADDING Christmas movies to our Amazon Prime watchlist.  It may not have all the Christmasy goodness that Netflix does (from what I hear), but it has some of the wonderful movies I’ve grown to love and adore each holiday season. The other – my “Baby It’s Cold Outside” Pandora station – full of Christmas music and available all year round….. not that I listen to it all year… right.

But curling up under a blanket to watch Holiday Inn or listen to Ella Fitzgerald certainly gets me in the mood to do some holiday crafting.  So tell me, what are your holiday favorites, be it movies, music or anything that gets you excited for the season?  I may need some new inspiration once I’ve gone through all of mine…around halfway to Christmas!
