I'm finding that having a camera on the blink just kills my blogging mojo. My 365 project is now going to be more like "283". Oh well. Last week I found a book at the library that was full of red, white and pink Christmas decorations.
I went to Joann's, and for a couple of days this week, my dining room table looked like this:
Other than that, I've been slowly knitting. And I'm in a funk about my own Christmas sweater. Actually, it was going to be my Birthday sweater, but that is not going to happen. Last January, I bought the pattern for this. In August, I purchased the yarn (it's Deep Red). I was going to knit this sweater for Christmas, maybe my birthday if I finished it early enough. Now I'm running out of time and am looking at other patterns. I truly love this (in much the same way as I love that homespun fabric), but I don't think I'll be able to complete it in time for Christmas. So now I'm contemplating this. And I'm thinking that it could become a Valentine's project if I really run out of time.
What I need to do is stop taking on new projects! Those Christmas decorations are not finished. The nieces' mittens are not finished. The nephews' hat and mittens are not even started, and I'm contemplating knitting a scarf and a throw blanket as Christmas gifts. Those Christmas lights I started a month ago? I have three of them. Do you see a pattern here? I think I have Seasonal ADD. It's time to get realistic. How about I come back on Monday with a realistic game plan? What are you doing for your holiday crafting? Are you on schedule, or are you (like me) easily distracted?
