All done

It's official, I finished the Christmas knitting at approximately 12:30 this morning. Now to survive three more late nights of work, some family holiday gatherings that are early in the morning, and a little more wrapping. A cookie and some egg nog and I should be good to go!


And another one bites the dust!

I have only one Christmas Knitting Project left to go. I fully expect to be able to say either tomorrow or Sunday that I am completely finished, though perhaps they will not all be wrapped yet. I didn't think my goals were so out there - and apparently I was right for once. Off to keep chuggin . . .


Well, that didn't take long

As I partly expected, the plan lasted exactly 4 days. By Friday I was happily deviating from the plan.

But, in other news, the small somewhat neglected project is finished, the sloggy project has gained a lot of ground, and the project that I hadn't cast on yet is moving along nicely.

And apparently I was wrong - there will be more new Journeyman, at least for a while.


An updaty thing

In my newly acquired age and wisdom I have decided on a plan of action for the remaining Christmas knitting (of which, thankfully, there is a manageable amount).

Mondays and Tuesdays will be for the sloggy project, as I am at work and watching shows* which require more of my attention - thus making the slogging seem much less sloggy.

Wednesdays will be for the small project that I have neglected for a while, as it really won't take me long to finish, if I just work on it.

Thursdays will be for the project I have yet to begin, so I will cast-on Thursday.

Fridays will be for the second half of a very quick project, as my time is not predictable those days.

Saturdays and Sundays will be for whichever projects need to make more progress before the week begins again.

And thusly, I will finish my Christmas knitting.

And upon completion of the Christmas knitting, I will begin a sock marathon as I have amassed a good lot of very pretty sock yarn that I want to turn into socks. Perhaps I will be Sockin' around the Christmas tree, and having a Sockin' New Year.

In other news, it looks very likely that I will have the Fox master control board to myself on Tuesday nights for a good long while, so when American Idol starts back up again I'll be stuck watching it. Sigh. That show pains me.

*Though sadly, there are no more new episodes of Chuck, Heroes, or Journeyman, but Fox has begun airing reruns of their primetime shows that I haven't seen yet, so they're new to me.
