Are you doing NaKniSweMo? I'd planned to. I had the yarn and pattern picked out and at the ready. I'd even balled the skeins of yarn, swatched, and set the proper needles aside for safe keeping. Yes, you read that correctly. I swatched!
And then I realized the reality of my pre-Christmas knitting. NaKniSweMo quickly turned into NaKniSweNope!
I'm knitting a pink Stroll Gradient shawl for my mother-in-law. Pink is her favorite color.
I'm knitting the Mountain Colors scarf for my great niece. And if I'm knitting something for the great niece, her brother will need something handknit too.
The not so great cowl for Sarah got frogged. She says she'd rather have socks. It's a dammed good thing she likes to cook and grocery shop!
There's the poinsettia needlepoint that needs to get finished and turned into a pillow.
There's the two Christmas stockings that still need to be lined.
And last but not least, let's not forget the seventy-two Smitten mittens I need to knit. And as if seventy-two mini mittens wasn't enough, I'll need five garland cords to go with them.
Yeah, NaKniSweMo is definitely a nope this year. But hey, on the positive side, I've already got my Christmas Eve Cast On project ready to go.
