Christmas Panic!

I'm so very disorganised. Normally at this time of year I would have the Christmas knitting well in hand, but apart from 1 pair of socks that I finished several months ago I have nothing! I've managed to reallocate a couple of things that I've knit previously and had put away (sob.. goodbye knee-high socks) , and in a major panic-induced fit of startitis I have cast on 7... yes 7, individual socks. I'm not sure why that seemed like a good idea, because really it's not. Focusing on finishing 1 pair at a time would be sensible, but where would the fun be? After turning the heel on the Baudelaire I cast on, I realised I'd be lucky if it fit a 7 year old and promptly frogged the whole lot in a fit of spite, but the other 6 are travelling quite well considering I'm spreading my time across them all.
I'm hoping to have at least 2 of those sock-pairs finished for Chrissy, but really I'm not hopeful considering I just got a lovely new shipment of Wollmeise and this pattern is beckoning....
(oh yes, and I fell off the wagon long ago.... might have forgotten to mention it though)

haha.. yes I did think of you when it arrived and I saw how gorgeously ruby-red it was!

Ha ha, yes I have things to knit, but instead I'm knitting something that's NOT needed by Christmas. Of course I only just realised the ridiculousness of this yesterday.

Wow - 7 pairs of socks! I can only work on 1 pair at a time. Hope you can finish as many pairs as possible before Christmas. Happy knitting.
