Usually, I find most knitters writing horror stories of knitting the day of someone's birthday, or frantically knitting presents on Christmas day.
And I admit to doing that myself.
But not this time.
I finished the River Runs Through It Mittens.
They're for a birthday in December, so I finished with lots of extra time. No frantic knitting on this project!
Also, they're for the Sweet Georgia Knit-Along on Ravelry -- for which I've started a third project, the Vancouver Fog Fingerless Gloves. These are also a December Gift, though in this case, they are a Christmas gift.
See, I'm really trying to be good about my knitting this year! And even better yet, so far it's working!
I even assembled a big list of all the things I want to knit for Christmas/Birthdays this year here, on Ravelry. (I'm glad that pretty much no one on that list has a Rav account, and those that do don't know who they are on the list!) Anyway, I'll see how well I do!
