What is it about December?

Did you notice that as soon as December 1 rolled around, your life became much more hectic? I don't think we can really blame it on Christmas. I mean we've known for twelve months when it is--you'd think we would all start our shopping, crafting, knitting a little earlier to avoid the stress.

Now, I'm not saying I'm stressed, but I noticed that all of a sudden I had quite a bit more to do at work and it is all supposed to be done by the end of the year. Considering I am taking the last two and a half weeks off, my end of the year is a little closer than most. (BTW, we all know when the end of the year is too--um, spead out the work?)

I am very close to finishing all my Christmas knitting. Only a Yoda sweater (Howel from SnB) and a Sofie Bag for a friend left. From now on, unless I really have an urge to make gifts for someone else, I doubt I am going to put myself through gift knitting any more... I'm selfish, what can I say? I have too many projects that I want to get done--not have to get done.

Sorry for my bit of craziness today. I woke up and realized that I really don't have any significant knitting progress to share from yesterday and that there is just tons to do overall.

Oh I can relate...It's nice to knit because we want finish a project...not because we have to get it done by a certain time. Even though it's fun to knit gifts, I think I'll stick with just a couple next year. :-)
