Holiday Knitting Spirit, Where Art Thou

As Christmas approaches, there is always much discussion about Holiday Knitting. There are even some people who share all of their finished Christmas gift items and parade them around Ravelry with photos to boot! (I'm not jealous...)

I am sad to say, holiday / gift knitting has never, ever been one of my strengths. If I want to doom a knit project to fail, set a deadline, and have someone in mind while knitting. Failure. It will not get done, and is likely still sitting in my endless basket of WIP’s.

Truth be told, I am not even one to make a big to do about Christmas shopping. The malls and super stores are no place for me during the holiday rush. I much prefer to do my shopping from the comfort of my home, dressed in my sweats sipping my cup of decaffeinated tea.

So for anyone who may worry or anticipate a knitted gift from me. Please, lay your worries to rest, I will do no such thing! And for those of you who are kind and proactive enough to knit for others, please pass some of that spirit onto me... Next year!

Happy Holidays, everyone!

  1. I'm with ya' on the gift knitting - it's tough to manage! Especially if the recipients are not understanding of the time and effort involved. ;-) A cup of tea and sweats sounds like my kind of afternoon.
