Sometimes I feel way ahead of the curve. For instance, last month I decided to cast on a Christmas gift to knit during my commute time.
I'm not a huge fan of knitting garter stitch but it's so easy to knit that I decided it would be the perfect project for my early morning and afternoon bus times. Several weeks later I have a finished object for my gift box that I barely noticed I was knitting. Normally, I would complain about the endless garter stitch but at 5:30am I didn't really have the energy to contribute to bemoaning garter stitch, I just picked it up and knit.
Pattern: Trillian by Martina Behm
Yarn: Tosh Merino Light in Robin Red Breast
Needles: US #2 1/2 (3.0 mm) Addi Turbo
Mods: None. I just knit knit knit and have about 6 yards of yarn left. I'm going to use it to tie up the package before I send it off to the recipient.
Do you knit gifts for the holidays? Do you have a plan or do you just dive in?
