Take a look at any knitting blog at the moment, and they'll pretty much all be saying: 'it's nearly Christmas and I've not knitted all my gifts'.  I've found an easy way round that; don't knit gifts for other people (unless you're sickenly organised and have them done by November). 

There, I've said it.  I'm not planning on knitting any gifts for Christmas.

Of course, this is likely to all slip once I've found the right size needles to hit gauge on the jumper for my ninja nephew.  (Knitted way too big, so if I don't get it done in time for Christmas, he can have it for Easter). 

There are things I'd meant to knit by now.  There are knitting deadlines I have for next year.  I'm going to have to get cracking soon and put it all in a spreadsheet.

What I do want, knittting-wise, is a project to last me over Christmas/New Year.  Most likely this will be a shawl of some sort.  I also have sewing, and need to find a new job, and reading some plays and catching up on sleep and tidying the flat and sewing up some of my UFOs... 

Good to have a holiday with nothing to do, isn't it!
