Making a List and Checking it Twice!

I decided to only make a few items for Christmas this year and buy the rest. It turns out there are a few people on my list who are extremely hard to buy for and only slightly easier to make for so I decided to make for them.
Right now my list looks like this:
1. Twilight socks – finished
2. Square socks
3. Square socks
4. Cowl – finished
5. Tree Frog – started
6. More socks
7. Mittens – not gonna happen!
8. Probably a few more I’m not remembering now.
9. Crochet dragon

Now taking into account that each sock takes roughly 20 hours.. by my calculations.. I’m screwed!
Right now I’m making the tree frog while I wait for some sock yarn for the square socks to come in. (Pattern link later) So, hopefully I can get a lot of this frog finished before I have to start on a pair of socks.

Other than this, I am basically finished my Christmas shopping, which makes this a little easier, but not by much. 🙁
I’ll post again when I’m not drowning in yarn.

Winter is coming

We’ll it’s really Christmas that I’m more worried about. Instead of trying to knit/make something for everyone this year, I’ve decided to make some and buy others. I’ve realized that not everyone will appreciate the time and effort that goes into a hand made gift, and not everyone will appreciate it or use it so I can use that time to make something for others. On my list are a few pairs of socks, another Boscage Cowla tree froganother messy, and some more items. The only one I’ve started is a pair of socks so far! Hopefully I can get some more finished soon but I’m working on a Ravenclaw Christmas stocking as part of my colour work knitting class and that has to be finished up soon. The yarn for the frog and nessy are on the way as well.

I’m just glad that I’ve finished Christmas shopping for Ji already and don’t have to worry about it. I just have to decide if I want to try to make Harry Potter house stocking or Game of Thrones house stocking instead. Either way they would be awesome!
