Speaking of Christmas in July

OK, so I missed July and skipped straight through to September *grin* I thought it was time to start organizing my projects for Christmas gifts. This year Christmas will be in New York at my folks house, so I have a few extra little gifts I'll need to make for people. My baby sister is also pregnant and due sometime around Thanksgiving. So, here is my attempt at getting organized *yeah, I know, scary isn't*

To Knit/Crochet Holiday List

September: Christening gown for my sister's Baby Shower - by September 26th - Started!

December:
Birthdays:
  • Mr. X - not a freakin' clue
  • Baby M: Elijah

  • Mom: Cardigan - Noro SG yarn in stash - casted on
  • Dad: Vest - Peruvian Alpaca yarn in stash - swatched

Aren't you afraid that your family will read your blog and no longer be surprised?

I hope you have no plans from now to about December 24th, including sleep. That is quite a to do list!!!!!

You are very "energetic" in your goals. Of course, you can get it done.

Have a great day.
