Linking up with Ginny at Small Things...
I've been knitting and knitting lately. I have one more special something to make for Christmas then I'm all caught up! It seems that the more things I need to do, the more things I start to cast on just to 'do'. Right now I've got three (soon to be four) projects going on.
Hexipuffs are never ending and always addicting. I think I'm up to the high 90's now. I'll have to make my 5 year old count them out for me. I love that they are such a great manipulative for him. He loves to make patterns and there is enough now to make pretty fun combinations.
I need another pair of legwarmers so I've got those going now. I have a pair now that I wear almost every day and every night. Another pair will be nice to add to the mix.
Lastly I've got a shawl on the needles too. It is pretty mindless right now which is what I need during this holiday season. I secretly hope that I have it magically done by the New Year. Maybe with our holiday drives to here and there I'll get it finished. I've done so many triangular shawls that it is nice to mix it up with a crescent shaped one.
I've picked up Organized Simplicity again and have been reading it when I get a chance. This book is motivating enough to really work through it thus I've been slow to actually finish it. Reorganizing and simplifying during the holiday season is actually really good for me. I always feel that Christmas is what starts the year off and I hope I have a more organized year in 2012. Preparing for the new toy additions for three little kids already has me stressed and pretty motivated to really think about what is liked and loved in the play room. With three little boys 5 and under, it is hard to weed out what isn't used and what won't be used. If my 21 month old could actually talk and tell me what he would like to play with in the next few years, it would be a lot easier for me.
