When You Are So Late You Are Early

Christmas Star

Every year before Christmas I walk into the Superwomen trap. I think I can do everything. When I look at all the projects on Ravelry that are Christmas themed or good as gifts I want to make them all. There are knitted door wreaths, Christmas decorations, little trees and even a squashed rat. This time I thought I could do something small.

When I saw the book 55 Christmas Balls to Knit I thought they were the ideal gift. I guessed I could knit one in an hour and make one for everybody on my list. Well, the first ball took me about 4 hours to make and I had to admit I could not do it. I also remembered that I don’t like to knit small things. I finished the second ball 2 weeks ago, well into the New Year. I also decided to keep them. This year I have started early, really to get ready for Christmas; )
