Dashing Toward 100

Normal people do not care about such things, but I am now within 10.6 yards of hitting my goal with 10 days left in the year.  I could still make it!

Of course, I could stop being such an idiot and say "close enough," possibly involving some sort of medication, but until I find it,
the two black runners are done, and I think I'm going to try Anita's suggestion for doing the designs in green, then I was also thinking of using black fabric instead of white and trying gold.  I have 10 days, after all.

The latest obsession really started because we couldn't find a gift bag that would fit for one of the gifts Andy made, and I have a BIG box of felt, so
two problems solved.  Then for once I actually remembered that I had a bin of bags in progress,
and found 5 in need of just finishing,
(one not pictured), and as not being finished means the fabric has never been counted, BINGO!  Then since I was one such a roll
I've been testing out some of the new embroidery designs for additional bags.  If I keep doing bags (which we do use, so it's not completely out of desperation) and table runners, it's just possible I'll make it to 100.  What's 10 yards in 10 days, right??????

Scant wait to see! I've been knitting up a storm for gifts....1 more to go but since it required bulky yarn.....I just had to visit the shop today. Great conversation and relaxations! A yard a day will be a stretch, 😢 But I'll hope otherwise! Loved your learnings from 2016.
Merry Christmas

You are a beast! I think you can do it. I frankly have run out of time. I wanted to finish two more knitting projects before the end of the year. There is hope, but I am working four days next week which will severely drain my knitting time.
