I didn’t get it done…

Alas, I didn’t get it done. I tried… but there is so much to do around this time of year. So much to knit… so much to bake… so many people to see and visit with.

I am on #18… so I’m almost there… must get to 24.

I’m sure you have figured out what I’m making by now.

I’m trying to put together a pocket advent calendar. In each pocket I will place a card with something simple yet fun to do each day of December leading up to Christmas Day.

Also, I would like the cards to include the title of Christmas books to read every day. The story of Christ’s birth is wonderful in and of itself, but there are also so many wonderful stories of Christmas, the Christmas traditions and folklore.

Right now I’m just so thankful that my child is two. He doesn’t know it is not done and is not at all disappointed that it is December 1st and there is no advent calendar… except for the chocolate one from Trader Joe’s…..

How are all of you doing on your Christmas knitting/projects.

Anyone on time? Behind?
