Time Crunch

I am trying to come to terms with the fact that I won't have the top I'm knitting for niece done "in time". So far:

I don't generally knit to deadline unless I'm sure I'm going to make it. If I know a Christmas present won't be done in time for Christmas, I'm fine with sending the gift out in January, or March, or later. (I've done it before.) 

But in this case, niece is going to be visiting in a couple weeks, and I kind of wanted to have this done so I don't have to mail it. 

It's not going to be done.

But it'll be close. So, at least I can make sure what I have done will fit. I hope.

    1. Not quite as much as I would have liked. But I tend to wish to do more than I have time to do.

  3. I think you'll have enough to know if it will fit or not. The garment looks better and better.

  4. Your niece is sure to love it whenever she receives it. It's already looking good. The real treat for her will be getting to spend time when you when she comes.

    1. Thanks. We'll see how much time we can actually spend together. She's got lots to do when she gets here.

  5. From what I understand about it (which really isn't much), knitting is quite a time-consuming process. Better to take your time and be late than rushing and having it look like (quite frankly) something I made.

    1. I've been doing this long enough that it won't look rushed if I rush. Especially with a pattern.

    1. I hope so. She did pick it out, so we have that going for us.

  9. It's more important that it's done right and fits. I hope you have a great visit with your niece.
