November and December are always such busy months – between my own stitching and knitting and finishing work, baking, get togethers….. it seems each day has something scheduled. Yesterday I finished the last of my must do christmas painting, and this morning I wrote cards and mailed out packages. I also finished the last section of my SAL with Novalee:
I finished my own ornaments late last week – just a pitiful few this year as I did not stitch my normal christmas and halloween ornament a month, but enough to go around:
And of course, the knitting continues as well. The thrum slippers are a lovely warm pattern and will be for my oldest brother, while the cabled hat is probably the warmest I have made, given that it has a knitted lining. The socks and shawl will be heading off to some special friends who appreciate knitting!
Tomorrow my ornament tree goes up, along with our usual assortment of christmas goodness, and then the baking starts the following week. I hope everyone else is on track with their self-imposed deadlines! Just remember to breathe!
