Something is different

Here we are. The second day of December. And you know what I haven't done yet on this blog? (or anywhere else for that matter)

Posted my list of Christmas knitting. And to be fair, I haven't really been thinking all that much about Christmas knitting. More importantly I haven't been stressing about Christmas knitting.

Sure, there's the handspun Fair Isle sweater that I was hoping to finish by December 25th, but since I haven't gone near it in almost a month, I think it's fair to say it's not going to be done. Which is fine - it will be a March birthday present. I've got a couple pair of socks done from earlier in the year, and a vest. I'm not knitting anything for my brother since he just got a sweater. So I'm heading in to this first of the last few weekends before Christmas idly thinking about cranking out a scarf over the weekend to be sent back to the States. Maybe a non-slouchy Fartlek Hat* for Himself out of some handspun I finished in this year's Tour de Fleece.

We'll see. This is the first time in a while I haven't been in a state at the beginning of December trying to figure out exactly what needs to be done and when in order for it to get to where it needs to go in time.

It's a nice feeling, it is...
