52 Days until Christmas

I recieved an email yesterday from a friend who is orgaizing a secret santa knit exchange and the words "there are 52 days until Christmas" made me choke on my coffee.

What the what! When did it turn into November? I should have seen the warning signs. The change in the weather, the pumpkin spice coffee at Starbucks, October… but for some reason it didn't register that time was of the essence with knitting presents.

I have a ton on my knitting plate this fall too aside from making gifts. It's been very exciting for me and I can't wait to share it all here – but in the meantime…:)

It's the weekend of the Interweave Knit Lab. I signed up for classes months ago and when I did November seem like a far off time but here it is! I am looking forward to seeing some old friends and have already had the chance to hang out with two of my favorite girls, Courtney and Kate. Like they said, we had some really great Indian food, I got to sing to them the opening song of Full House, and we went to a place that serves beer, wine, pie and ice cream. A fantastic day indeed.

Now that that fun day is over it's time to get refocused on knitting. Heck, if all else fails, everyone is getting jewelry.

    WHY DID YOU HAVE TO REMIND ME? there’s a note on my calender that says “don’t knit gifts for Christmas” because I’m working on my thesis… but here I am, 52 days from christmas, with a list to knit!

    You just made me choke on my coffee, too – no joke. I *just* this week started an inspiration board for all of the gifts I hope to knit. I learned last year in the just-barely nick of time that your cowl patterns knit up very quickly — thankfully I only gave them to two people – if all else fails, the rest of my female hand knit gift recipients will be receiving them this year!
    (PS it goes without saying: THANK YOU for posting those patterns!)
