more-or-less Christmas knitting

It's December 2nd. The Christmas Knitting sprint to the finish line has officially begun. As of today there are just 24 days and counting until the end, and I am nowhere near where I need to be knit-wise, even with my revised Christmas Knitting list. (The original list had an afghan on it. A knitted colorwork afghan. I'm crazy and delusional, I tell you...) In the meantime, I'm hoping to get a big chunk of it done this weekend. I plan on lots of movies and lots of knitting. We'll see how that goes.

In the past week, I haven't managed to do a whole lot knit-wise. The list of what I haven't done, however, is much more impressive.

  • I have not designed my pattern for Secret Project #6, nor have I swatched for it. I haven't even wound up the hanks of yarn into balls yet.
  • I have not made any more progress on Secret Project #9. In fact, I actually ripped out what intarsia I had and decided to make another go of double knitting. I see this as backwards progress and prefer not to think about it.
  • I have not bought the necessary pieces to put together Secret Projects #1, 2, or 3
  • I have not sent off Secret Project #7, even though it's been completed for more than a week and is something that needs to be used be sent out before Christmas since it it Christmas-related. This is actually due less to procrastination and more to my lack of a box to send it in.
  • I have not touched Secret Project #5. Still just three rounds of ribbing.
  • I have not touched Sarah's Belated Birthday Socks. I have, however, taken a picture of them.

As usual, please ignore BastardCat lurking in the background.

So that's where we're at right now. And that's not even considering all the other Christmas-related things I need to take care of. Wish me luck through this. We'll see if  I get through it with my sanity intact.
