Clicking away like crazy

My main focus recently has been cranking out that skirt from Greetings From Knit Cafe in the red knitpicks cotlin. And I'm 16 rows from being done! YAY! I wanted to work on it last night but I ended up baking about a million cookies for my mom instead. I have also been working on some baby and christmas presents, other wise the skirt might have been done. In facr, I just took a really cute little toddler dress to a baby shower last weekend. The pattern was out of Speed Knitting and it was so wonderfully simple and since it was knit in the round there was no sewing and very few ends to weave in. SUPER YAY. The skirt is going to have about a million and one ends because of all of the lace panels at the bottom. This weekend there is another baby shower so I am working on a quick gift for that one as well. And I've thought of a couple things I'd like to make as Christmas gifts if I have time. Where did the time go? Compared to all the time I used to have to knit, I feel like I get nothing done here! Oh well, I guess I will just have to start prioritizing my knitting. And maybe some people will just get late christmas presents. I hope everyone else's christmas knitting is going well!

I got my skinny scarf in the mail yesterday from the TeaTimeKnitters skinny scarf exchange. Its awesome. Its a medium shade of grey with kind of a diamond lace pattern in it. my partner, Stacy, is great. I hope she likes the package I mailed off to her yesterday. She also sent me some yummy looking chai tea and a cute snowman ornament and snowflake post-its. :-)

I guess I better get ready for work. I'd much rather knit.
