Bah Humbug

So. I, ah... Yeah, Christmas. I haven't really been thinking all that much about Christmas. Which hit me last week right about Thursday. I, uh, haven't started any Christmas knitting. And I've got a niece and four nephews.

Ahem.

I made a sort of plan. I have no idea if I'm going to be able to execute it. Five hats. In a week. Knitted. By me.

And now my nose is alternating between stuffy and runny.

Sunday night (as I write this), I have managed, since Thursday, to complete two hats.

two knitted hats

So, maybe this is doable?

I'm in denial.

In other news, I noticed some of my Etsy traffic was coming from a new source. I traced it back and found this article on nerdy EOS lip balm holders. That last picture in the article is from my shop.

It gave my shop quite a few more views than normal. Kind of cool.

Right, so back to the knitting. I've got three more hats to finish by Christmas. I'm not sure which nephew I'm going to knit for next.

  2. Two hats is pretty impressive in three days. It looks like you'll make it. I hope the nose doesn't get any worse!

    1. I don't know if I knit quickly or that I just haven't been doing much else.

  4. I love your hats. My mom always knit us a new hat for Christmas. Every single year. And almost every single year I lost mine!!

    1. I think I might make the hat thing a tradition. For now.

  8. They are bloody lovely! Not quite the same, but there is a vid doing the rounds of a woman making a questionable hat out of an old pair of men's stretch boxers...desperate measures and all that. Good luck and merry christmas. x

    1. Interesting? I know there's a way to recycle various garments into hats, but I don't know if I'd want to try that with old underwear. But whatever.
