The mad Christmas rush!

I can't be the only crocheter who just realized how far behind I am and how close Christmas is.


I have 2 afghans totally completed and washed just waiting to be gift bagged.

I have a 3rd ghan (2 strands and an N hook) yup - call me a cheater! I'm in a time crunch.  I could say that thick cozy afghans just can't be beat for presents heading north to the colder states and it would be true but it's mostly the time crunch.

I have a 4th afghan that I just realized I will NOT have enough yarn to finish.  I'm going to need at least another pound of red and possibly 2 more pounds of blue. Yup - another 2 strander but this is one of the VERY FEW truly custom ghans I've made.  I was specifically asked to make this one super thick and cozy so i don't feel like I'm cheating but originally - I only bought enough yarn to make it a 1 strander. 

Looks like I have a 100 mile round trip to hit Michael's and Joann's to HOPE they have the colors I need in stock.

So - how about you guys?  Are any of you done for Christmas yet?

I thought I would be when I started in the summer. Sadly, no. I have one afghan about a third done that can't be postponed to a later b-day (hers is a Thanskgiving b-day) it has to be done for Christmas. I have another started that will be a spring b-day at this rate.

I have other Christmas decorations/toys that need finishing, too.

I cheated. I ordered the yarn online. It should be here next week so I'll have plenty of time to finish everything else up.

I bought some stuff for my Mom on Cyber Monday, but that's about it. I don't know how much I'll be able to make as gifts as I still have a ghan to finish for the donation pile, tails to weave on the ghans in the pile, plus working 70 hours a week right now up until the 22nd. And lucky me, I smacked my right hand good at work today! Swollen and black and blue already.

Ouch, Shell! How'd you manage to do that?!?

I'm loving your new star, btw!
