The holidays are fast approaching. Days are ticking away quickly and the Wal-Mart by my house has THE most obnoxious sign right in the door as you walk inside. "Only 6 more Saturdays until X-Mas!" Who needs that kind of pressure?
I haven't finished a single knitting gift project since that scarf for my brother. In truth, I haven't really been pushing myself too hard to work on anything. Yes, I've managed to finish 8 blocks of my dad's blanket, but I still have 12 to go. And each block can take over an hour to do. What I need to do is isolate myself for a day or two and just work on it. But I've managed to get more hours at work, so I can't go requesting days off now.
The truth of the matter is that I haven't been feeling very well. Tomorrow is my birthday and I always tend to get rather bummed out around that time. Don't ask me why, I don't know.
I only have half of one slipper done for my brother. Not even half, more like 3 inches. And half of his grey scarf. I need to knit a pillow for my sister, a scarf for Anna, oh I found the most beautiful yarn for that, a shawl for my cousin, and a million other projects that I can't even remember right now.
See, my problem is that I keep going to the knitting store, buying yarn and starting a project, then I don't finish it. I have yarn for a scarf for me, a half-knit felted bag for myself, a sweater started... the list goes on. What I need to do is discipline myself, finish each project in turn before working on the next. Hmm... maybe that's what I need, a working plan.
1. Finish first slipper
2. Finish Dad's blanket
3. Second slipper
4. Grey scarf
5. Anna's scarf
6. Anna's felted patchwork bag
7. Kari's scary pillow (Just wait until I post a picture of this thing. She picked out the UGLIEST yarn for this pillow.)
I guess I should stop writing and start working. Wish me luck!
