It’s The Final Countdown….. and a half

When you read this, it will be exactly sixteen days until Christmas.  That leaves only fifteen days of making and prepping and wrapping little packages of awesomeness to place under a Christmas tree.  To be more specific, MY Christmas tree in MY living room.  Oi Vey!

The clock is ticking and if I’m being 100% honest with all of you, I haven’t purchased a SINGLE gift yet.  Or made one, or wrapped up a something from years ago to re-gift.  Hmmmmmm.

Honestly, it’s not because I’m going all Scrooge on everyone this year, it’s because I could not, for the life of me, decide on what I wanted to do for anyone in my family.  It was getting ridiculous.  SO

I decided to pull out the big yarns and get to the making as quickly as I can.  I have my eyes set on these- Simple House Slippers by Simone A.

They are perfect looking and take DK weight yarn, and I think I have enough in my stash to make the 7 pairs I’m setting out to make.  Lets be honest though, will I make 7 pair?  I don’t know.

But because I know me, I brought in back up this time, and decided on these too: North Country Mitts by Andrea Mowry

These sweet looking mitts take a whopping 75 yards of Aran weight yarn.  So bring it on procrastinating self- I’m about to take you down.  Waaaaay down!

On another note- the new podcast episode it up, you can find it on the menu drop down or right HERE

I hope you all have a wonderful day.  Until next time,

Happy making!
