So, I get a bit of a reprieve on my Christmas knitting. My friend Jess, who the sweater on size 3's is for, is going to be visiting here around New Year's. That means I don't have to get her sweater done to mail to LA for Christmas, which, let's face it, wasn't going to happen anyway. One way or another, I now have until New Year's Day to have that done!
The score so far is:
Stuffed Mittens-done
Niece's socks- one big one done, one big one and two small ones to go
Scarves-haven't worked on them since last report, these don't have to be done right for Christmas
Hat-same as scarves
Jessica's sweater-first sleeve almost done, second sleeve and finish work to go
And I've decided to knit Little Nephew a sweater. He's picked out the colors and I have measure him tonight. Yes, I'm out of my mind.
Truffles-one batch done and gone, second batch ready for scooping, third and fourth batch to be started today
Christmas Cards-about half done

So, since today is my last day off before Christmas, there is going to be a great deal of truffle making, card writing and knitting going on.
I hope all of your holiday prep is going well! Wish me luck!

Four batches of truffles! I'd invite myself over but I don't want to spew cold germs on anyone.

Don't forget to purl the chocolate and scrape cards...

Danielle, do you need truffles mailed to you or shall I just save you some?

Guido, you're so funny when you crack yourself up! I've been listening to podcasts and getting little socks done!

Congrats, Lucy!

I actually finished my holiday knitting early, so I'm knitting more things. (They're portable; the sweater I'm working on is attached to a 2 pound cone.) My husband and I have actually opened all our stuff to each other already and we're going to open the stuff from my family tomorrow night. It's all about planning. :)

How long do you think the truffles'll last? I insist on going to work for at least part of tomorrow. This is absurd. I'm already missing three parties!
