Thanks, mom.

Just when I thought I was progressing nicely on Christmas knitting, my mother stepped in. 

 She sent a mug home with my darling Doodlebug, to remind me that I had promised to knit several mug cozies for exchange gifts. That was months ago! How could she possibly remember that in April she and I saw a cute sweater-type cozy for a mug, and I volunteered to make a few? We will leave the question of why I would volunteer to go this for another day. 

Today, it is all about the volunteer's remorse.

The Christmas presents are professing nicely. The first week, and the first mitt is over halfway finished. 
I estimate I have ten to twelve weeks in total to complete four mitts. So. . . That is three weeks each. 

Plenty of time to allow for screw up, digressions and my general knitting ADD.

Today, it is all about the deadlines.

I decide that the gift vow had a firm deadline: the last day of School before Christmas. No one will know or care  if  the 2 for. 1 vow is a bit delayed.
So I have started the first of two sets of fingerless mitts. Two boys. Two teachers. Four fingerless mitts. 

Today, it is all about the early planning.
