Christmas Knitting

Christmas always puts me in the mood to knit. It's ridiculous because there's no way I could actually start and finish a project in so short a time, but December has me browsing patterns and daydreaming anyway. After yet another year of regretting not starting sooner, I've decided to just start knitting and getting a jumpstart on next Christmas.

I stocked up on some fun yarns during Craftsy's big yarn sale earlier in December and downloaded some fun patterns. Craftsy is having a huge sale on their classes and they have a fun sweater class I'm looking forward to trying The Seamless Artemisia Sweater class. It's just under $10 this week and will teach me to knit a sweater completely in the round with lots of neat detail and information that I can apply to future projects.

The week before Christmas is probably a weird time to be thinking about New Year's goals, but I'd like to aim for a project per month. This week is a good time to plan for it, thanks to pre-Christmas sales. I know sitting and knitting might sound silly for a busy homeschool mom already struggling to find time to get it all done, but it is a nice creative outlet and perfect for the nervous energy that makes it hard to sit still for family movie night or long rides in the car.

What are your projects? Did you manage any fun gifts this year? Can you recommend a pattern for me to tackle this next year?
