A certain kind of desperation

Faythe and I were just discussing our Christmas knitting. She, of course, has learned her lesson and doesn't knit Christmas gifts anymore. I, on the other hand, refuse to give in to reality and have compiled a grand list of recipients, potential items to knit and the yarn I hope to use.


amateurmalcontent: that's a lot

rayleen: so i'm using grape harvest right now

amateurmalcontent: for less than 3 weeks

rayleen: shut up!!
I DON'T WANT TO THINK ABOUT IT.

amateurmalcontent: LOL!!

rayleen: i am unemployed i have plenty of time!!!!

amateurmalcontent: do I detect a bit of yarn harlot desperation in there?

rayleen: ARGH!!!

desperation???
maybe
i won't admit defeat this early!!
it's only December ____

amateurmalcontent: you have 20 days



As you can see, Faythe is not supportive at all. She's more like one of those crowd hecklers at a comedy show.

Right now I have fifteen items on my list, with 3 of them already knit. We'll see how long it takes before I start removing items from my list, much like a sinking ship throwing out heavy objects in hopes of staying afloat. We'll see how much I can get done.

Oops, I just remembered another item I promised someone. Make that 16.

Ha! I refuse to give in to reality, too, but in my case, I'm denying altogether that there is any sort of green and red holiday approaching at all. Fa la la la la I can't hear you!

A heckler at a comedy show? That's totally something Ryan would do (and has actually done)! I guess he's rubbing off on me.

I'm wondering if any of those "to be knit" items are being shipped to San Diego. Ahem...good luck? Kidding!! I'm cheering for you...KNIT! Rayleen! KNIT!
