I am a big procrastinator. In fact, during college when I first began dating my then-boyfriend/now-husband, one of my professors called us the procrastinator couple.
I can't help it - I just work better on a deadline.
Several deadlines? No probs.
So, this month, I'm already doing NaNoWriMo (over 50,000 words right now but not finished) and participating in a SavvyGirls Podcast Swapetition. The theme was "Winter is coming" and I had a lot of fun planning my package. Then, I decided to knit something for my swap partner. And bake something. And it was all due by November 30.
A friend asked me to run in a Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving with her as well, so -
|Me and Miss Steph, the most cheerful running companion ever. Also, very fast!|
that meant making time to train. Toss in some random charity and family Christmas knitting and I'm existing on coffee fumes.
Today, after I returned from mailing my own swap package, I found a sweet surprise waiting for me.
My own swap partner, PJ from New Hampshire, had sent me a lovely gift.
Everyone lurking to see the big reveal . . .
First off, a card with a scene from Nashua, New Hampshire
All the goods - my favorite Rowan yarn, candy, tea and fabric and a hand knitted Washington Square hat.
Youngest Daughter thought she'd be the best model for it.
I had to tuck my hair up - maybe it's a sign I should get my hair cut?
I can't wait to tell you what I sent as well. All in all, a very successful Swapetition!
As Tuesday was my birthday, I have a little more yarn to show you.
Dear Mr. Daisy bought me this lovely Cephalapod Yarns Bugga sock weight yarn from Knitty City in New York City. Great choice! I am going to be knitting the Advent Scarf from Lila & Claudine's this year and this will be the perfect yarn.
