    Fave Free Patterns on Ravelry

    Guys, I'm starting to panic.  The countdown to Christmas is about to start and I already feel unprepared.  How is this possible?  I feel as though I've been prepping since September.  In fact I'm pretty sure I've been prepping since September.  Now we're two days away from December and I feel like I'm way behind schedule.   

    I don't know why but countdown to Christmas always starts on December 1.  As soon as that first box is popped on our advent calendars it feels like we need to get things done NOW.  Invariably, I end up paring down my grand plans to manageable plans almost instantaneously.  I'm not gonna tell you my grand plans because I'm super confident that one of these years, I'm actually going to execute them and I still want everyone to be surprised.

    Mrs. Claus Boxy Hat Kit!

    Guys look what I made! I'm so happy with the way Mila's Mrs. Claus Boxy Hat turned out! 

    To be honest, this wasn't the plan.  Originally the plan was these very beautiful colour work hats that both girls were going to get with cardigans this Christmas.  It turns out that colour work raises my blood pressure and triples the contents of my swear jar.  I really need to embrace the fact that, for right now, two handed knitting sits just outside of my patience threshold.  After realizing I had switched pattern rows halfway through a round, I had to park that project for a moment when I have less going on.  Like in February... 2000 never.

    Honestly I'm grateful because this was exactly what I needed.  Brainless knitting that makes me feel like I've actually accomplished something at the end of the day.  Even if the Christmas cardigans turn out to be more of a New Years cardigans at least they'll have something adorable to open Christmas morning.
