why, oh why, do i do this every year?!!

Its that time of year again - the deadline seems to get quicker every year! Every year i say to myself i will be more organised and every year i am not! is it just me??

My list seems to be endless so i have started to prioritize - have just finished a neck scarf for a friend, and have started on a scarf for one of my sons' girlfriendssorry pic not very good - its lovely and soft and has ribbon running through it.

whilst looking at fabric i just had to buy this

and then i bought this to make some christmas bunting with

thought i had better stop there, especially on the yarn buying!

i am still working on this tho - for michaela - and hope to send it on by the weekend

have never knitted on circular needles before so that is interesting!

well i had better stop now, dogs are waiting for their tea and the chickens need to be shut in

thought i would leave you with this - i rushed out the other evening and took it because the colours in the sky were awesome

Wow - that sunset is totally ... wow!

Can't wait to see your finished knits and bunting. Oh, and I'm with you on the time running out thing. It's scary, isn't it? :-O

I do this every year too and I haven't even started yet so you are way ahead of me! That photograph is amazing.

Ditto! Only this year I decided not to make it even worse by doing craft fairs - I still have loads of orders to do and have decided to make all the children's presents!

Love the sunset!

Wow that Sunset is stunning!!!
I just LOVE the blue scarf ... it looks so soft and snuggly!!! We don't wear scarves much here but I do love them. I've knitted one for DD1 in London but I'm not much of a knitter so it's VERY simple
Keep at it ........

You clever thing you. And to think as well as everything else you had time to put that sunset together!

I wrote myself a list back in January titled 'Christmas 2008 - starting early this year'. I wrote down everyone I buy presents for and decided on a knitting pattern which they would like. I was determined to tick off each project one by one as I finished them.

Sadly there is now less than a month to go and only one present is completed. The mind is always willing but the body less so! I seem to be just knitting blankets at the moment! (It's looking very good by the way - have sent you the next address by e-mail).

Wonderful sunset and wonderful scarf, it will look beautiful when it is finished.
I think we all take on to much around the Christmas season and then burn the midnight oil in trying to finish all of them...wonder why we do that?

e the sunset.

Why? Because you are a glutton for punishment and you just love the challenge. I do the same, my corner of the living room is proof of it!

Those yarns are so beautiful. Sometimes I wish I could knit!

Hi, I have tagged you. I hope that you dont mind. Hopefully you have time to do this....

Moogsmum said...

Yup - me too!! My DH has a much calmer approach to Christmas but then he would as I'm the one who does everything!!!

Your knitting is looking lovely. I love the blue scarf.

I love that photo of your pooch waiting for her tea :-)

What a gorgeous sunset! The moon has been amazing this week too but I'm far too cold to go outside and take a photo!
