Holy crap, it’s Christmas Eve.

I have no photos right now, largely because I’m drinking and watching Penny Dreadful with a cat on my lap. The big red blanket is done, the maiden aunt scarf is done, the angel for grandma is done, and we got the sister a super cute pajama onesie in mid-October.

Sean gets to handle the menfolk. Which is why we are totally unprepared for them.

I’m planning to spend much of the afternoon/evening with a friend and have been trying to make her a scarf, but my cat is an asshole so it’s not been a productive evening, lol. Hopefully I’ll have good updates before Christmas Day.

Progress report

The red blanket needs me to go buy more yarn (and it’s almost as bright as that photo, but my boyfriend assures me it’s his mom’s favorite color) and the scarf is for his aunt. Who is super religious. His maiden aunt. Very religious and never married kind of maiden aunt. So it makes it funnier to work on it while watching two dudes make out.

Gotta admit, though… I messed up some stitches while I was paying more attention to Netflix than the scarf.

Uh oh…

Know how I can tell I’m ramping up to a manic episode? People tell me I’m being a bitch, I write overly personal blog posts like that last one, and I have multiple projects going at once. 😂

Amigurumi angel for my boyfriend’s grandma for Giftmas, more playing with colorpooling (I’m doing squares of the yarns I have and then working them in order of which I like best,) and a scarf that might be for the boyfriend’s aunt.

And it’s after 3:30am. That’s another symptom. Whee?

In other news, the hats have been selling slowly, but they’re selling. So that’s nice. And I haven’t gained weight so far this holiday season which is a Christmas miracle, lol. But I have plenty more fudge ingredients sitting around so that could change. Ooooh or chocolate truffles!

I learned to do something new!

Using variegated yarn to make cool repeating patterns is sooooo much fun. This is what I did all afternoon and evening Saturday:
