The theme of this post, however, is the hail mary knitting I did leading up to Christmas. I originally wasn't going to make anything for Christmas presents. Too much stress, too much worry about it being appreciated. I went back on this decision when I realized I had no idea what to get for my grandmother, my sister and my grandfather.

I don't know if I'm going to knit for Christmas next year. If I do, I'm going to start a lot earlier, like tomorrow.
Right now, I'm working on socks. I have so much sock yarn and I really want to make a dent in my stash. Also, right before Christmas, my cousin's son came up to me and asked when I was going to make him something. When a 3.5 year old sits on your lap and asks you to knit him something, it's really hard to say no. He suggested a scarf, but I reminded him that I made one for him last year. We agreed on hat and mittens - a set for him in his favorite color, purple, and another for his twin in yellow. I've finished the hats using the Nottingham pattern in Bernat satin. I've made one pair of really simple mittens, complete with string, and am halfway through the second. I can't wait to drop those off!
