I’m a sucker

December 8, 2010

I told myself no Christmas knitting this year.

Well.. that almost lasted. As of this fateful past Sunday, I decided, well, I guess I should knit something after all. What a (not-so) life altering decision that is.

So on late Sunday evening, we ventured out to the ‘burbs to grab few skeins of yarn from Michael’s and my mis-adventure began.

It’s a center out baby blanket. I do normally prefer blankets in rectangular shape, but well, I figured this would be easier (just knit in the round, all right sides). Then I realized a huge flaw in this method of knitting – progress of the knitting seems to appear slower as it grows larger. Yes, I know it’s not technically true but it just “seems” slower.

Hopefully I get to finish this within next couple of days. Then onto a pair of convertible gloves (you know, the flip mitten top, with fingerless gloves – WITH fingers) and a matching hat.

I’m not sure why I talked myself into doing it all – especially with twenty days to spare (actually slightly less, since they all need to be finished AND wrapped up before Christmas eve). What can I say – I’m a sucker.
