Now let the Straightening begin

So Christmas came and went and I did not get my projects done. Except for the shawl for my sister-in-law, the only finished Christmas projects were sewing ones. What is wrong with me? I just don’t know. The afghan for my Mom, --- unfinished. The vest for my Dad, -- unfinished. Even the socks for my brother, -- totally unfinished. To add insult to injury, my knitting projects are scattered from one end of the house to the other. All my carefully hidden yarn was moved because of Christmas decorating, and piled into heaps in the attic. In my regular knitting areas which are now disaster areas, I have many, many false starts that have to be pulled apart and restored to ball status. January is shaping up to be one hell of an organizing month.
But on the other hand, I did have a very nice Christmas, and I did get the quilt for my niece done. See:

You can’t see it in the picture, but there are frogs in the blue fabric. My niece is just crazy about frogs. So I did get one project accomplished this Christmas. Now I’m just going to have to spend all January straightening up. Now for next Christmas......

Getting Christmas done

So it's been a pretty productive weekend at the woollyattic. Not only did I get the shawl done for a Christmas present (for someone who cannot be revealed), I also got the bunny done! Isn't she cute? Since my niece can't read yet, I'm pretty safe in revealing that this bunny is destined for my littlest, newest niece. The pattern is from McCalls, but I embroidered the eyes instead of using plastic eyes because my niece is so young. I think the bunny turned out well. I also got alot done on another Christmas present while the Packers played. Good thing this weekend is so productive--Christmas isn't far off!
