What is it with time?

Of course I can knit that before Christmas.

Time doesn't seem to be working the way I think it should. Take dishcloths, for example. Say they're 38 stitches across, 60 or so rows. Half those rows are often straight knitting. The other half are just knitting and purling. Doesn't it sound like that should take about an hour? Why doesn't it? I don't get it. In hopes of getting everything actually done, I've taken to writing out schedules for my evenings this week. I have allotted a whole two hours for a dishcloth tonight - and I'm already eight rows in. Of course, I'm hoping to get ahead of schedule. (I also seem to have the idea that I can write and address thirty or so Christmas cards in an hour. We'll see.)

Speaking of dishcloths, want to see a few? (No, I still have not learned how to take decent pictures of them, but I think I'm getting a little better.)

Christmas Tree Cloth

Pattern here. Green Lily Sugar 'n Cream.

These were supposed to be a hostess gift, but plans went awry and I ended up staying in a hotel, so I'm not sure what I'll do with them. (Yeah. Two of the gifts that I managed to finish I didn't even end up needing. Yes, I noticed that.) I may keep them around through the holidays in case I need something last minute, and if not, just keep them. I don't have any Christmas-themed dishcloths.

Everything I knit takes so much longer than I expect it to (or anyone who has knit it before does.)

Cute dishcloths! Oh well, at least you're either a) ahead in the gift making or b) stocked for the season.

And congratulations to your brother!
