Describing Myself in One Sentence

"Does not knit well under pressure."

That pretty much sums up how I've been feeling the last few weeks. It doesn't help that just about everything I'm working on right now (knitting and other things) has to stay under wraps and is unbloggable.

I don't even have any cute cat photos to distract you with since my camera battery is dead and I haven't bothered to charge it.

If I get my act together I'll have one finished object post, an in progress post (the one thing I can share), and hopefully a few recipes and other holiday goodness later this week.

I hope all of your holiday preparations are going well!

Under the Radar

I've been busy lately knitting projects that can't be spoken of here yet, doing some paper crafts, and firmly ignoring the fact that there are only 29 days left in 2009.

Oh, and napping. Serious insomnia has struck leaving me wide awake most nights and napping after work. It's a vicious cycle I would really like to get out of.

I ordered a box of goodies from Knit Picks about a month ago now, maybe longer. The idea was that I'd have plenty of time to knit up some small Christmas goodies like Alan Dart's Gnomes and Snowmes or a felted slipper or two.

Of course, I haven't touched a thing in this box since I took the photo except to move it off the dining room table. I still believe that I have plenty of time to do everything that I want done before the holidays but I might just be deluding myself at this point.

As I mentioned, I've been spending a lot of time working on paper crafts lately and I've decided to make my own Christmas cards for the first time. I'm sure you won't be surprised when I tell you this has become much more time consuming and costly than I originally anticipated. But, I'm very excited to see how they turn out.

And because I take more cat photos than anything these days, here is a little montage of Reggie 'helping' me test some new stamps:
