As of today, I am officially done my Christmas shopping. The final package arrived today and now all that’s left to do is tag and wrap my knitted gifts. *happy dance* I didn’t know if I would finish in time. Knitting Christmas presents seemed ambitious and a little scary and I didn’t know what to expect. Hopefully they are met with surprise and hopefully people enjoy what I knit for them. Or I may join the ranks of bitter disappointed knitters everywhere whose knitted gifts are met with less than stellar reactions.
I also signed up for the Hot Cocoa Swap yesterday. I’m looking forward to starting my accumulation of gifts for whoever my pal ends up being, but for now, I think it’s high time I knit something for me! Why is it so much easier to deside on making something when it’s for someone other than yourself? Maybe I just get overwhelmed with all of the awesome free patterns out there.
And then there’s the whole instant gratification thing. I mean, I could start a big project like a sweater, but then I would have to go possibly months before completing another project and then what if I get bored? If I knit something small, then I can play with my new toy much sooner! Ah, decisions decisions.
