Why I am a bad holiday knitter

I am a really horrible holiday knitter. I’ve been reading other people’s blogs in shame, because they’re making such great progress with their knitted things. Claudia just finished a sweater. The Yarn Harlot just finished some socks and a scarf and another project (I forget what, but I think I’m mentally blocking so that I feel less fiber shame). Baobh has done several things as well.

Me? Well, I have some yarn for a hat and some plans for scarves, but I haven’t even bought supplies for those yet. And then there’s this pair of socks I planned on giving to someone last year, which will be gifted this year, because they don’t know the difference, right? And then there’s that other project that was for Christmas two years ago.

I completely suck at this. Now, to be fair, I’ve been working on lots of other projects that are non knitting-related, so I haven’t been idle, but how in the world to you other people manage? Am I just unnaturally busy all the time, or perhaps lazier (I doubt it is that last thing)?

So the next thing to do is buy yarn and make a checklist, so that I can keep myself to task. Go forth, self, and knit! (And maybe you’ll finish those projects by February.)

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
