Finally, I’ve had some sweater progress! Because I can knit my father’s Christmas present in front of him, his sweater has made some serious progress over the last three days. I have just four more rows… before I divide for the body. I know. There is a lot of this sweater left. But once I divide the sleeves off and start working straight stockinette in the round, I’m certain it will go faster… I am completely counting on the idea that the purl rows are slowing me down right now as I work back and forth to create the buttonhole section of the henley. This will totally be done by the new year.
I have definitely started thinking about what projects actually need to be finished, wrapped and under the tree by Christmas. As for the others, I am planning my holiday season and visiting schedule around when I will be finishing their presents. 25 more presents in 31 days might not be humanly possible, especially since three of them are sweaters, but I’m sure by new years I can have everything done, right? Right.

That’s right, we have less than 40 days to get all of our shopping, baking and crafting completed. I may still have quite a lot of knitted projects to go, but I’m actually on schedule. Looking at the numbers, though, that sounds crazy. However, 3 of the 6 cowls are finished. One of the sweaters is half way done and another has about the first fourth completed. The first of two shawls is nearly complete, I only need to attempt to purchase more yarn for the edging and to bind off. In all, the major, time-consuming projects are well on their way.
The other projects I am attempting to complete will either have simpler patterns or a bulkier yarn so as to make them quicker knits. Though I am keeping a list and re-prioritizing and redrawing out my schedule nearly every other day, just to reassure myself that I can finish everything in time… I am definitely feeling the pressure. Especially since the door decoration seems to have slowed down to an intolerable pace…. More to come on that this weekend.
I hope your Thanksgiving preparations are going well! Pretty soon it will be normal for everyone to be talking about Christmas!
