For a Very Important Date! No time to say “hello” Good bye! I’m late! I’m late! I’m late!
Well, no, not really, but it’s going to be a Very Close Thing. See, I have deadline knitting on the needles, and it’s all coming due in May.
Due Next Week:
I have a baby sweater I have to finish today so I can give it a wash and light block before I have to gift it Wednesday. It’s worsted so it’ll take a day or two to dry. There should have also been booties and a hat, too, but I doubt I’m going to make it. Well, the booties might make it. Maybe. We’ll see.
I have a Very Large Special Project which needs a lot of work done to it this week. And it’s being gifted on Thursday.
Due May 26:
I have a pair of fair isle mittens (my first colorwork ever) which need to be finished. I’ve knit the first and am about two-thirds of the way done with the second.
At least one cowl (hoping for 2, but it should be 3) out of worsted, but I don’t have a pattern for them. Might be winging this one. How hard could it be? Why are you laughing?
In my fantasy land, I’m also knitting 2 hats. Really. Stop laughing. It’s rude.
A Shaelyn shawl in black which also needs to be washed & blocked so it’s dry by the 26th. I have 1 1/2 more pattern repeats to do.
So the upshot is once I get through next Thursday, if I manage to get everything done I need done by then, I’m in good shape. The mittens will only take a few more days of concentrated knitting, and the Shaelyn is my purse project, so it will move forward steadily. The cowls & hats SHOULD only be about 2-4 days of knitting each, so…*fingers crossed*
And on top of all of this, I have school, appointments, and a number of books to review.
Of COURSE I’m not slipping into Holiday Knitting Delusions. What makes you think that? This is totally doable, right?
