Christmas Won

Well you know how in my last few posts I talked about all of the knitting that I had left and that it would take a Christmas miracle it get it all done, well no Christmas miracle happened. The realization hit at 4:00 am Christmas morning when my eyes wouldn’t stay open any longer and I had two unfinished Christmas gifts left. The gifts were for my mom and sister, both of which knew I had a lot to do and had told me that it was okay if there gifts weren’t finished in time.

But I have to give myself credit I did get a lot of gifts done, so here are the pictures of all the finished gifts (not modeled by the people they were made for)

I will post pictures of my moms and sisters one they are fully finished and my cousin kit’s birthday gift when it gets finished, but until then, I have more knitting to do.

 

Christmas in July

Earlier this year I came up with this great idea. My idea was that since I generally hit a wall with my knitting in the summer months I would start my Christmas knitting then just so I wouldn’t be in mad frenzy of trying to accomplish all the Christmas knitting during November and December. My plan was foiled though because I haven’t hit a knitting wall, I have a ton of things that I want to make for myself, and I have been in KAL pretty consistently. Though I didn’t get nearly as much Christmas knitting done as I expected with July coming to a close and coincidentally Christmas¬† July just having past I do have one project to show you. So here it is my abate modeled by one of the little girls I babysit.img_4543

Outside of that I don’t have anything else finished, but I have lots on the needles. But none of the projects on the needles are Christmas gifts, but alas I am a major procrastinator, they will all get done eventually.
