Holiday Season

Well well well....the holiday season has crept upon us and well....I have no anxiety about unfinished holiday presents. Why? because that kind of pressure is/was ridiculous. We (most knitters) love the idea of giving our knitting away to others - not just at Christmas time. It's hard to hold on to the things we knit during the year for those we love. A spring scarf seems silly to give someone when it's 32 degrees. Anyway - my latest project is one of knitters gluttony. I have a feather and fan blanket I just don't like. I have decided to turn it into a big bad baby blanket. The thing is - what parent is gonna want an orange and yellow blanket? I'll just have to see. I''m calling this one California Sunshine. Hopefully I will be able to give this one to someone who just appreciates the idea of a handknit soft and squishy warm and cozy blanket for the newest little person in their life. Oh yeah for the gluttony part - I've also started the Curlicue Blanket. I will admit all of the WIP's for my New Year's Post complete with photos and estimated time frames for finishing them. Ha! will y'all be able to admit to your starteritis? I challenge all of you to admit all of your WIP's and see who has the most, who will finish first and NOT I repeat NOT start anything else until all of them are done.
