Has anyone started their Christmas knitting yet? Seriously folks, my e-mail has been flooded with all sorts of ads for Christmas knitting patterns, catalogs for Christmas cards, Christmas wrap, and other holiday recipes and such.
OK....I know...there are only 162 days until Christmas, but can't we just enjoy summer? Lightening bugs, ice tea, lemonade, cooking on the grill and being able to go outside with a jacket, coat or a sweater.
I guess if one is truly serious about knitting gifts for the holidays, I guess one would need to start now or sooner....like right after New Year's Day.
I rarely knit specifically for Christmas, unless it's a quick and easy knit like a hat or a dishcloth or something. There's already too much to do for the holidays, that I had decided to let that particular ship sail a long time ago. As, it is, I keep trying to cut back more and more for the holidays and I try to keep things as simple as possible.
Currently, I'm knitting a baby afghan and then I have a baby jacket in mind to do soon, and I hope to knit some dishcloths soon. I'm trying to enjoy my Summer and my knitting and I hope that you are, too.
