Checking that list

I don't know about Santa's list...but mine is very long. I am chipping away at my personal list and the one I have for my job(s) at the shop.

The scarf above is "Babushka" it's a Mac N Me pattern. It was not difficult, but did seem to take for-ev-er. Starting from 3 stitches and increasing in seed stitch to 300! Then there was that nice ruffle! I really like it and will probably make one for me some day. This one is a model for the shop.

I used Alpaca With A Twist- Fino. and a size 5 needle.

That's my Christmas tree there in the background. I have to put presents under it don't I? Most of them have been bought, they just need to be wrapped. The candy still needs to be made and ....ugh I can't list the things that need to be done ...I think I just need to go do them!

Do you think there is a way to be completely prepared for Christmas without stress? How early would you need to start to achieve that?

I can check off the "make a blog post" entry on my long list. Now I have to go to work and teach a few women how to knit.

I think to be prepared stressfree, you have to start in May. Or something.

I keep thinking of 'just one more thing'. sigh

I just saw this little shawl/scarf last night at the shop and I love, love, love it! I can't wait to make one but I have so much to do for Christmas right now too. No, I don't think there is a way to get through Christmas without stress. Although, I think that if I'd actually work on it all year instead of waiting until the last minute I'd be less stressed out and maybe like it again. lol
