Best Laid Plans, etc.

So, if you’ll remember back in November I wrote that this year I would absolutely NOT be knitting ANY presents? (If you don’t go read this first. Go ahead. I’ll wait.) Yeah, well joke’s on me.

It started out innocently enough. I decided I’d knit two pair of the super popular Manly Mitts for my husband’s company party gift swap. As 3 pairs had been requested (and received) by his coworkers, and it’s a quick and easy knit, I figured this would be simple enough.

Then I decided to knit 2 cup cozies for my youngest son’s PreK teachers as Christmas presents. Those were done in one long and sleepy night as I’d decided to do them a day before the last day of class.

Before all those, though, there was the cowl I knit for a friend. And the mitts I’m knitting for another friend. Said mitts are about 1/4 of the way done. Plus the thing I’m knitting for my mom, which I haven’t even cast on for yet. Oh! And the mitts I’m making for one of my youngest’s school friends.

I asked my husband the other night if I’d done the same thing last year. Apparently, yes, I had. And I’m sure I’ll do something similar next year. That’s ok because as the saying goes “The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry” and if me driving myself slightly crazier is my awry, well I’ll take it. 🙂

What last minute knitting are you trying to accomplish in the next 15 days? Let me know!
