Feeling pressed for time? Me, too. Wrangling a list longer than you are tall? Me, too. Scrambling to get everything done before Christmas? Me, too.
The holiday season is always hectic, but it seems even more so this year for a mix of reasons. My solution? I'm trying like the dickens to keep things absolutely as simple as possible.
Knitting seems to be the one place that approach is working. As you can see, I'm tackling yet another pair of Last-Minute Mitts. Why?
They're fast, fun and easy. They're so simple, the yarn does most of the work. They're practical and will get worn. They're proving to be the ideal way to use those odd skeins of yarn lurking in my stash. Equally (or more) important, they're a completely manageable challenge, even though both my time and mental bandwidth are severely limited.
In fact, it's quite possible everyone on my gift list will get a pair. But why rush into a decision today? There's still time. Right?
