I have holiday ADD

I have several projects started. None of them really are for gifts. Or I tell myself I am not knitting for Christmas. I really am. I keep adding to my collection of current ‘not knitting for Christmas’ projects. Each one ends up with learning a new technique. Which is good, but only adds to me jumping from project to project.

I have containers of yarn in my living room for matching and pairing for projects. Do I take it back downstairs? No, because I have other projects rattling in my head that would require maybe what is in the big honking tote along with other yarn in the basement sitting in totes. What if I run out of yarn in my current project? I probably have more in the tote – so why should I take it downstairs????

I also have a few felted sweaters that I had a brilliant idea of turning into a few items. Went to the store to get the fabric and patterns needed for these projects – now I have piles of cut fleece, felted sweaters, patterns, sewing machine, sweaters hoping to be part of the project… all sitting in various stages in my dining room.

Ugh. Then there is the bedroom. I have projects in there too.

Oh, and there is the decorating. I will have to move all my nonsense back downstairs. We have to get the house ready for the holiday.

... I want to ride my bike....

I am dreading the switch to Christmas decorations. We are hosting a dinner here, so I must get this done before the 12th! I usually leave the tree to Hubster and the girls. I get everything else!

LOL, mine's year round.

Brian rides his bike to work even in snow. Not me!

I want my hammock even more than my bike. When I had my other house, I considered hooks in the walls (like in Mexico when we stayed there) to hang the hammock inside. That requires a cleaner house with less stuff than mine. Sigh.

Sometimes we don't decorate. Our tree is only 4' and it can fit on a table, though, so it doesn't take up too much space. Without kids we can get away with holiday food and avoiding anything that doesn't sound fun.

Hope the knitting works out in your favor!
