Now it's feeling like December.

Of course I can knit that before Christmas.

The transcription project is done. Done! DONE!

And it's snowing! A lot! Wheee!

So this means that I can go home tonight and, after trying to clean my house and pack for my weekend trip, curl up with my Christmas knitting, tea (or maybe some adult cocoa), and Christmas specials on the TiVo. Yay! The Christmas knitting is... going. I'm sure it will go more quickly now that the transcription is done. And really, all I want to do is knit right now, so at least that should be helpful. Tonight I have to finish a hat and attach some hanging loops to some felted ornaments. Over the weekend I'm going to try for two toddler hat/mitten sets. (The hat for one is started.) And maybe a few dishcloths? Hm. On Sunday I'll post some pictures, I promise. I realize some of you may be wondering whether I really do still knit, as there has been scarce evidence of it around here lately. (That's one of my New Year's Goals - I do those instead of resolutions - to post knitting pictures at least once a week.)

After the charity hat deadline this weekend, the next deadline is Thursday the twentieth, for things that need to be mailed - the aforementioned toddler things and a whole bunch of ornaments. (Plus some things that are already done! Aren't you proud?) Then I need another three dishcloths by the 22nd. Two more ornaments for Christmas Eve. By Christmas itself, I need to finish the projects for my parents (both well underway), another hat, and another four dishcloths. Oh, and another ornament. Then a hat for a friend I'll probably be seeing the weekend after Christmas, and then a few things for local friends - they've already graciously offered for their gifts to be last on the list, as I see them all the time. Oh, and they gave me my birthday presents about two months late, which I really didn't mind at all, but am totally leveraging into justification for the delay of their Christmas things. My personal goal for those is January 6th (as I've already started planning other things for January), though they won't mind if they're a bit later.

Whew. That's totally doable, right? Right?

Sanity Update, 2 Hours Later: Wait, two hat and mitten sets this weekend? In Friday night and Saturday, while visiting my family and putting up the Christmas tree? (Oh yeah... I wasn't counting Sunday, after I get home, as part of the weekend. I'm counting on that time to work on other things.) No. No way. One set. One child will get a hat (because it's already started) and the other will get mittens (because his mother requested them). And really, probably neither are expecting anything, so it's not like they'll miss it.

Stressful and busy, but doable.

Or a hat to one and mittens to the other.

Season of giving! But not your sanity.
