Eek! 44 Days Left!

With only 8 projects left to finish to meet my goal, I'm actually a bit ahead, but today I am still a bit freaked out.  Only 44 days left in the year--YIKES! 

For a few days last month, I was knitting a little mitten ornament every morning over coffee, which was fun but it got derailed when I decided to knit the Christmas stockings for my friends.  But now that the stockings are both done AND delivered, I thought it would be a good time to revive "Mitten Mornings,"
though this poor little guy has been in progress for two days now.  In my defense, yesterday (thanks to Theo) I was up at 5:00 and making breakfast and canning and cleaning and vacuuming and doing laundry--so  I wasn't really slacking. 

I have also started a birthday present for next year,
as so many of the Christmas basket stash-dash projects are coming out of the basket as gifts almost as fast as they go in, so these babies are for a February birthday and can stay in the darn basket for a while.  Obviously, I didn't think this challenge through very well. 

8 more projects and THEN I will be free to tackle some of my bigger projects again.  YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  There may be hope for dem fischer sin fru after all.....

Toni, you are jinxing yourself mentioning that you have time to get things done to complete your projects for the year. Don't you know the knitting fairy likes to play games with those that are doing well on their progress?

Heh..I well know the 5:00AM hour as a result of feline intervention problem. My Biscuit is a perfect pest that way. If meowing doesn't get me up, he jumps up on the dresser and bats things off (noisily) until I get up to chase him off.

Love the thought of mitten mornings! They're awfully cute!
