I'm still trucking on in terms of my Christmas crafting. As it stands today, it looks like the afghan for my parents will be done by Friday and will hit the post office Saturday morning.
As of this morning, I had only 11 motifs left. I cranked out 4 on my lunch break so I should be done with all motifs tonight. I'm hoping to get it all seamed tomorrow and then do the border Friday. It helps that somewhere around skein #3 I realized that I would run out of yarn if I tried to make 81 motifs. Instead of ordering more yarn (in which the shipping would actually cost more than the yarn), I settled on making it only 8x8 squares. I crocheted like a mad woman on Saturday and Sunday completing 27 squares and ending the night with an ice pack on my wrist. I had to take Monday off from crochet and instead started working on the Cedar Leaf Shawlette I'll be giving my sister-in-law. Amazingly enough, I completed the entire stockinette portion and am now only left with the leaf border and blocking. The end isn't quite in sight just yet but at least I'm sticking to the schedule I wrote out for myself. I know I'm not the only one left burning the midnight (or midday, or weekend) oil. So what's left on your list?
