3 Month Marker

We have finally hit the 90 day mark until the big Holiday gift giving event (also known as Christmas.)

Without further ado, here’s my list.

  1. Wow, that’s a lot of holiday knitting! I bow to your greatness. I don’t personally knit for holiday gifts; I work in the world of software projects and my work holds enough deadlines that I try to avoid them in my personal life. But, I have the utmost respect for those who do and particularly those who get their stuff done in time.

    • Having such an epic list and getting it all done are two different things. As I take on more writing it remains to be seen how much I will actually get done. I just need to remember, “gift cards are a valid gift too.”

  2. That’s a huge list! If I had a list that long, it would be for Christmas in 10 years time πŸ™‚

  3. Darn it! I was hoping you wouldn’t think it through all the way and realize I read your blog, and thus slip up on my gift. BLAST!

  4. Wow. That’s a lot for sure! Good luck with that! πŸ™‚ Thumbs are pressed for you that it won’t be too stressful.

    I have my mum, my “sister-in-law” (I mean, I’m not married, but … you know … ) πŸ˜‰ , my grandparents, maybe my grand-cousin (haven’t asked his mum yet) and maybe one or two friends of mine who will recieve something. Sister and dad won’t wear knitted stuff and I mean, it’s alright – I’d rather buy something than give something they don’t want/need.

    I’ve started on the stuff for mum and my granddad. See how that goes … πŸ™‚ But I’ll blog about it as well. Soon. πŸ˜‰
