struggling...but not with knitting.

Struggling to get any free time, any at ALL.

Up to the yoke on G's sweater.

25% through Christmas socks.

SO MANY new patterns on my mind!

More post and pics soon.

You know how you reach that point when you are knitting for a deadline (maybe self-imposed, maybe holiday related) and you reach that point where you realize that you aren't going to finish in time, no matter what, and it's sad, but also a little bit freeing?

Yeah, not at that point yet with this baby sweater. I'm still in the well-if-I-finish-this-sleeve-tonight area.

That being said, time to watch TV and knit. Hooray, hoorah, as my daughter would say.

Another list-type post while I get in the habit of blogging again:

* Gavin's sweater is now up to the armpits, and I'm starting on the sleeves.

* Trashed one pair of booties for step-niece B, but am almost done with another pair. Also, my mother-in-law knit her a pair, too, so I'll still be able to send off 2 pairs this week. Goal is to have them in the mail on Tuesday.

* Still need to knit a pair of slippers. May finally download slipper pattern when I get paid on Wednesday. Maybe. Might make myself finish gift socks first.

* Christmas is over, but Christmas knitting is not yet done since all the gift exchanges haven't happened yet. I'm very much relying on this to not feel overwhelmed.
