Christmas is When???????????

So with all the best intentions, I started knitting my Christmas presents a while back, as I'm sure many of you have done. And then things started to go off the rails. The project I started for a special bookshop owner I know, wasn't turning out the way I thought it was. It was following the pattern but I just wasn't like it. So I frogged it.

I found a different pattern for a wrap that I liked, it is very easy and simple, just what I need because now I'm behind schedule. So I decided to jazz it up a bit with some striping. So what, it I had stayed with the program I wouldn't be battling two huge balls of yarn that now make it inconvenient to travel with this project and work on it in stolen moments, like on my lunch break. No I am reduced to working on it only at home. But I love it and everyone is getting one of this year! As long as I can get this one done. I vow to get it completed this weekend, but so far my knitting time has been limited to between 11:30pm and 1:00 am. Doesn't leave a lot of time for sleep. So much so that when I got up with morning to make homemade soup and bread and went for my K-cup I put the cup in the machine the mug under the dispenser and pressed the button. Easy right? Sure, I mean K-Cups are simple and time saving. Isnt' that what all the ads say? Unless your the time of person who needs a cup of coffee to make a cup of coffee. The machine stopped made it's little final sigh to let me know it was done. and I started searching for the lid to the travel mug I had just brewed my coffee into. I looked everywhere knowing I just had it as I had the cup in my hand. Oh wait, what's this? the lid is on the cup, the coffee is all over the place, great. Well thankfully some of the coffee found it's way into that little hole intended for drinking and I was able to get a couple of sips in me and straighten this mess out.

Bring me my knitting!
