Knitting for Christmas

It's the week of Thanksgiving and I'm proud to say that I've already begun knitting this year's Christmas presents!

This is monumental because I'm normally the procrastinator of all procrastinators.

My early start doesn't necessarily mean that I'm completely safe from the Christmas Eve knitting frenzy that occurred the last two years in a row, but I'm extremely hopeful that this will be the year that I break the pattern.

What are your Christmas knitting habits?  Do you put everything off until the last minute like I normally do?  If you have a good knitting schedule that helps you avoid the last minute panic, I'd love to hear about it.

I'm pretty sure that Thanksgiving is the perfect time to start.  I'll let you know if I still feel that way when Christmas comes!

Some Christmas knitting from years past: An Ice Skate Ornament, Men's Mittens, and Little Knitted Flowers.

Happy knitting!
xoxo

  1. Oooh! That's awesome! I got start on some Christmas crocheting this weekend. I managed to finish my first gift and started on my second. I'm hoping I haven't bitten off more than I can chew. Good luck with your knitting!

    1. Thanks, and good luck to you too! I fully understand wondering if you've bitten off more than you can chew, I accidentally do it all the time. Eek.

  3. That ice skate ornament is so cute... what a great idea to use a paperclip for the blade. Happy knitting!

  4. Those mittens are amazing! I've only made one pair of mittens before! This year I knit a cowl as a gift, not sure I'll knit more though.
