Ramping-up for the Holidays

I have officially started working on gifts for Christmas and I don’t know if I am behind or ahead.  I guess it depends on what I am making.  I have finished the gift for my mom and I know what I am doing for the girls and my sister, but my dad and husband I haven’t a clue.

This January I am going to try to make my first sweater, gulp.  I shouldn’t be intimidated, but I am.  I have already knit a lace shawl, cabled some objects and even done fair isle.  I now need to get a sweater under my knitting belt.  I also need to upload all of my finished objects on the computer so I have a record.  So many little things to do.

Yard work is also calling my name.  I have a giant shrub I need to move and it is a huge task.  It has rocks surrounding it and it is at least 10 years old, probably older.  I think I just have to do it the old-fashioned way and slowly move all the rocks one by little one and then dig through the clay soil and then replant it.  It will look great in its new home and have enough room to grow to be as big as it can grow.
