Yet Another New Holiday Knitting Plan

Of course I can knit that before Christmas.

(Yes, I know that tomorrow is October and I should have figured this all out already, not to mention gotten a lot of it done. Shush. Everyone I know is having babies. I've been busy knitting baby stuff.)

I love knitting gifts. Honestly, I even love SOME of the stress of holiday knitting, up to a certain point. It adds excitement. But I don't like it when it completely takes over the holiday and makes me (and everyone around me) miserable. I had already decided that I was going to only work on a few things at a time this year, rather than buying tons of yarn and starting everything. But instead of picking projects randomly or by what I feel like knitting, I have just decided that I'm going to prioritize by recipient. Immediate family first. Mom, dad, brother. If their gifts get done, THEN I can consider knitting for other people. Way too often, they're the ones who get half-done projects on Christmas. Not anymore. This year they're first.

Of course, since my parents read this blog, I won't be able to post pictures of their gifts until after Christmas. I'll try to post on Flickr and Ravelry and tell you all how to find the pictures.

I've read about people giving yarn and a picture of the finished product as a gift when they can't quite get everything made in time.

Good luck... you are insane! ;)

Thatta girl! When I first got back into knitting, I was between jobs and had more time than money. Now that I have a job, I have to knit when I have time. I'm definitely prioritizing my gifts this year.

Good luck! I've just decided to knit an afghan before Xmas... Hmm.
