I have SO much work to do that I just feel guilty every time I even look at my knitting needles :(
I've got planning to do, a 4000 word essay to write, the Guide unit accounts to sort and terms worth of Guide meetings to organise. The Christmas 'holidays' aren't really a holiday are they? They're just time off work to get stressed about, well, everything really. I'm not even hosting anyone or anything until New Years Eve. I'm at the In-laws on Christmas Day and then my mum's on Boxing day. How do people manage with kids?!?!?!
I spent pretty much all day cleaning the house yesterday. It was an avoidance tactic. Today hasn't been much better but at least I have all my presents now.
I read other people's blogs and just wonder how they fit it all in. :(
Maybe I need a career change.
Anyway, here is the extent of this weeks work.
These are my crocheted stars that are eventually going to form a garland. Clearly 2 isnt enough for a garland. Maybe I'll have enough by next Christmas!
It's from this tutorial on the Jelly Wares blog. Super easy to follow, even for a novice like me!
And this is the cowl I mentioned last week. All this wool comes from one ball. Crazy stuff.
I'm not sure it's going to make a very good cowl, there isnt enough wool to make it any wider and it will be so short it will have to be buttoned up. :( I'll see how it goes. Maybe it can be a birthday present for my mum. She'll appreciate it even if it's a bit rubbish coz thats what mums do. :)
I'm also still working on a top secret Christmas present for my friend Dr Lucy. I wont get it to her til the end of January so a FO post on them will have to wait til then :(
On the plus side, my photos are getting better. Must remember to keep my camera charged.
Pop over to Tamis for some more WIPs.
I hope everyone else is making lots of Christmassy progress.
