A Holly Jolly Sunday #1

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you've probably noticed my lack of stick-to-it-ness.  There have been mutliple things I've started to do and just haven't followed through on. This time, I'm going to rely on you and having a group of people working along side me to help motivate me.

This is my Christmas gift preperation box.  As you can see, its not very prepared. I just purchase eight skeins of Dishie from Knitpicks to get started on my Christmas gifts this year.  I always end up rushing at the last minute and not having as many things finished as I like.

This year, things will be different! If I make my dishclothes and other gifts throughout the year, I'll be prepared. Maybe even make those Christmas stockings for the SO and I that I've been drooling over for the past two years, but have been too busy knitting last minute gifts.

How am I counting on you? I'm going to add a Mr. Linky to the bottom of this post and every Holly Jolly Sunday post after. Please link your own blog if you are working on Christmas gifts, or just a well prepared knitted gift in general. I promise to visit! If you do link, all I ask is that you try to visit a few of the other links that might be there.

Let's cheer each other along with extremely early holiday cheer! And join me next Sunday to see if I've made any progress on my first dishcloth.


  1. Oh, how I can relate to those last minute, knit quickly, Christmas gifts! Each year I decide that I am going to start earlier. Each year .... as the year passes, I keep saying, "I have to get started on those," then I find myself, well into December, knitting furiously.
    This year, once again, I said that same thing, and even have a partial list started... but .... no Christmas gifts made, yet. Actually, sorry to say, I am still trying to finish up a couple of Christmas 2011 gifts. I am also; however, working furiously on knitting a birthday gift for the end of this month. Wish me luck in finishing it on time.

  2. You go girl! I'm not working on any Christmas presents right now but I wanted to encourage you to work on your stuff.

  3. Oh I know that feeling. I am working on 2 gifts now and really need to motivation. If you don't mind that their not Xmas gifts I will help you out too!

  4. wow! good on you for being prepared!


I would love to hear what you think!
