Short List

With the craziness that I am decidedly calling two-thousand-and-twelve, I have been somewhat slacking on the the knitting front. I have several projects on the needles and shoved in bags and in the back of my brain somewhere but I just haven't managed to organize myself enough to get anything done. People just keep having babies and the seasons change with out so much as consulting me and my project progress.

Chances are that if you are a friend or family member you have most likely been waiting for your handmade gift for so long that you've forgotten about it or just plain given up on me. Well I haven't forgotten and this is my effort to light a fire under my own ass. Granted there are many more people I would like to make something for, (especially you, Dad!) I have got to start somewhere. This is my short list of things I will finish in the next two weeks:

 1. The scarf I promised Coral D. back in January. I don't think she thought I was serious when I told her I would have it to her by July.

2. LeighAnne's baby gift. Little Mr. Wright is due in a couple weeks. Wright, you are not in any hurry; two weeks, okay buddy?

If you can think of a humiliating consequence for me should I fail to complete my short list will you please post it in the comments. I'm hoping the fear of public humiliation will thwart my procrastination. Or leave me a comment on the blog about what hand knit you would like and I'll see about making that for you! I would love to hear what sewn or knitted item you might like. Just don't expect it in the next two weeks.
