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.....
