Really, I have been making some progress on my Christmas knitting. I'm sure I'm not the only one wallowing waist deep in gift knitting who just realized Christmas is less than three weeks away, right? Right?! Apparently looking at calendars doesn't work for me because I always know that date. But, Monday afternoon I sat at my desk and actually counted the days and realized my time was running dreadfully short. So, I've made a list for myself of things to work on and in what order they need to be finished and so far I've been able to stick with it. My plan is to just keep plugging away.
So, like I said, some progress. I'm almost done with the yoke on my Brother's Sweater. There's a couple more yoke decreases to do before the saddle shoulder shaping and I'm hoping to crank that out tonight. Then just button bands and blocking. I realized this morning that despite have 900+ yards of this yarn I may actually run out. I'll be stopping at the craft store on the way home to pick up another skein. Tomorrow will be button buying day.
In other, unrelated news, we've finally had our first good snow (flurries and dustings don't count). I'm pretty sure in the last couple days we've seen about 6-8 inches or so. Timber and Hazel are true snow dogs and have no problem attempting to dash around in it. Timber says it makes him feel like he's back in Minnesota where he spent the first 9 weeks of his life.
