Comments: Christmas in July

Christmas started in May for me. I'm also working on knitted gifts for everyone this year as part of my stash reduction efforts. So far it's mostly scarves and a felted jacket for my nephew. I still need some inspiration too.

Thanks for the sweet words!

You are a smart, smart woman. Last year I swore up and down that I would give only store-bought gifts this year. Then MIL (who is a knitter, and appreciates such things) hinted about socks. And now I have this bee in my bonnet about knitting socks for holiday gifts. And like, you know, it would be great if I had a lot of amputee relatives, because my second sock syndrome situation is really quite desperate. Also Yeti relatives, since I have two (single) enormous socks perfectly sized for yeti feet. But the idea of cranking out a bazillion socks by December...even I don't buy it, and it's my b.s.! Anyway, I admire your organization and foresight. Now stop it, will ya? :)
