Why do I do this to myself? Why, sweet spaghetti monster, why?
After last year’s Yuletide fiber marathon I swore I wouldn’t over-commit myself again. There’s no need to make homemade gifts for every soul on my list. Not only is it ok to buy gifts for my family members (so long as they are suitably thoughtful), it’s also ok to buy gifts for my co-workers. Two years in a row of giving knitted cotton dish cloths to the whole cubicle row does not necessitate a yearly tradition.
Really, it doesn’t.
Why do I feel so guilty?
Why did I see a sudden flash of Christ in a cabled cardigan gazing at me with ill-concealed impatience?
Great post. The God I worship only requires obedience. And cashmere. Or at least I think that’s the rule. 😉
Maybe he/she of the noodly appendages would like a Clapotis. Just sayin’. I cannot claim to speak for him/her. 😀
Hah. That’s an awesome idea!

Great post and I too am way to over committed 🙂
Truly… the only hitch with gifting is the guilt we push ourselves into
Q – LOL! Ah, the song of the over-committed knitter. 😎
So true. This year, I started holiday knitting in August and limited myself to ten gifts for close family and friends only, but as time goes on I have more and more ideas for other presents as well … I must resist!
It’s so hard to resist. Props to you for starting so early!
Yes! Started Christmas knitting in June. Seems two projects get added to the list for every one that’s checked off.
true, so true, I’ve started knitted gifts in january, been distracted by the wedding, and the baby to come, and I just notice I haven’t knitted anything for my new hubby for Xmas, I’m feeling guilty
