I'm with you on the "finishing up of old stuff once the [gwfgwf] knitting is under control". Last weekend I packed them all up until January. Must. finish. gift. knitting.
woohooo I won! im not planning on finishing nothin' old anytime soon, I got a little girl to care for ;)
I'd join you in the "finish up the old" plan if I had more in the works; the truth is that what I keep trying to finish up is still giving me fits (why I put it aside in the first place) and overall I think I'm going to continually have to walk away from it until I frog it all or til I can gain insight from another knitter or two on what I'm doing wrong.
I'll be at Willows for the KnitLit 3 party - I'd love to meet up but I'm not yet sure what my schedule looks like. I'm staying with Laurie (etherknitter) and I've no idea what the afternoon/evening looks like. If you're around before then that's a possibility but I'm not sure when I'm getting into town. I'll let you know more when I have it semi-figured out. :)
