At this time of year, I make lists. There’s the Gift List, which is sort of my master list. It includes everyone I want to give a gift to, a list of what I want to give them, and a budget for that giving. Then there’s the To-Make List, which is just like it sounds. It’s the list of things I want to sew, knit, crochet, or otherwise craft myself. And lastly, on years where I am hosting the festivities (like this year), the Menu List. That one includes all of the food I want to serve.
These lists are important to my sanity, and usually by December 19th, I have gotten my act together enough to write them out. Usually.
This year, before I take the necessary steps to remaining sane, I would like to present a new list. I call it the Things Only a Crazy Person Does the Week Before Christmas List:
- Indulge a whim to make up a new cabled headband design that nobody needs, and start knitting it.
- Finish knitting said headband, all the while stopping to write out the pattern and take photos of the process.
- Resurrect Project::Granny Square
- Devise a way to continue sharing the occasional photo in an Instagram manner without actually using Instagram (just in case I want to follow the mass exodus that has begun.
That’s it for now, but give me a few more days, and I’m sure there will be more 🙂
How about you? In denial much?
