I am WAY LATE making this post, but it’s still January, so here goes!

I wanted to share a little bit of what took over my life for the last three months of 2008. Sometimes I go a little crazy with plans…this year it was Christmas knitting. I convinced myself I was planning so far ahead, starting in September, it would be no trouble getting through my list. Never mind that I was full on into sale season and driving every which way across the state in the middle of a hectic semester while still balancing a part time job. Never mind that I need to sleep at night. Or that I planned to knit my brother an entire sweater in the month of November, or that I decided to do it from calculations rather than a pattern. Never mind that finals were the week before Christmas, and I’m trying to get the paperwork done for a study abroad (more on that later.)

No, I was determined. What happens when I’m determined to get something done? I usually do, for better or worse. This year was no exception (well, except the two projects I didn’t get done, but they were sort of “if I have time” projects anyway.)

Here’s the damage:

1. Manly Lace for Jamie II, 2. Mom’s Porphyria, 3. Justin’s Gloves, 4. Jordan’s Sweater, 5. Joe’s Turn a Square, 6. Amanda’s Halley’s Comet, 7. Joanne’s Fellow Knitter Goodybag, 8. Dan’s Turn a Square, 9. Helena’s Modified Fetchings, 10. Dad’s Thuja

Chairman Meow, my boyfriend’s cat, chewed through one of my dpns last night. This is my most used, most loved set! She’s in so much trouble right now!

A note on why I haven’t been posting (surprise surprise).

I’ve got a huge amount of knitting to do for Christmas this year, which means I can’t post about any of my new knitting projects. It also means I haven’t really been reading much because I’ve been knitting constantly. Additionally, time spent blogging is time that is not spent knitting!

I promise that after Christmas you won’t be able to shut me up!
