For New Years, I avoided the sure to fail vow to finish off my works in progress. What quilter/knitter would do such thing? It always ends the same way. Someone, who claims to be on your side, designs something off-the-hook adorable like this. However, I wisely decided on a manageable Christmas gift for my friends; one that could be easily repeated. I knitted 10 hats, plus a pair of socks which were a huge mistake because my fingers were so sore on Christmas morning that I had to take an Advil with my Mimosa. The hats were the perfect Christmas project. Working on them made me so happy. Not surprisingly, the little pile of successes renewed my courage and I stared down my unfinished projects undaunted. I resolve now to look at each one individually, instead of as a critical mass of Attention Deficit symptoms. Two are now off the list and the last quarter of a red sock is in my cross hairs. Stand by for the slide show.
