Let's see, 8 days to go. The socks are done. The stocking is 3/4 done, not counting adornment which I at this point see as unnecessary and possibly the mother's job anyway. The stuffed animals are not even happening. Maybe after Christmas. January presents. The knitted vegetables… well, that's where the suspense is, isn't it? The yarn came, minus one color (shouldn't they tell you something is backordered when you place your order? Especially if you order it 2 weeks before Christmas?!) I'm finishing stocking assembly before starting on the veggies. I'm anticipating possibly completing an eggplant before the big day. Low expectations, that's my motto.
