So, after the 12 hours I spent on a train on Monday and Tuesday, I thought that I had a pretty good handle on the sock situation (remember that I need to knit 2 pairs this month to make 12 pairs this year…), and then realised that I still have an entire pair of socks, and half of my current pair to knit. So, I guess that’s doable, after all there will probably be many hours sitting around watching tv over Christmas (and my last pair will probably be vanilla…no need to tempt fate, eh?). Anyway, here is my foot modelling the finished sock.
At the same time, I’d quite like to finish my OUAT sampler this year. This is almost certainly not going to happen…I’m catching the train to Salisbury on Thursday morning, and I need to clean the house and pack before I go, so I’m not sure how long I’ll have to stitch on Wednesday. I have, however, finished November’s block (Little Red Riding Hood, if anyone has forgotten!), and all the border, so all that is left is December’s block.
And the title and year, but they’re so small they don’t seem to count, somehow… I know, logically, that this is not going to be finished before I go home, which means it’s not going to be finished until next year. I just have to keep reminding myself that this is ok, that I don’t need to finish it before I go home. That this self-imposed deadline is not important, and getting a decent nights sleep before I go home is! Does anyone else ever get like this? Any ideas for reminding myself that it really isn’t important?
