The great rush to finish Christmas presents has begun. Why am I thinking about Christmas in July?. Well, I only have 158 days to finish all of my presents, and that isn't very much time when you factor in working full time. In case you didn't notice, I have put a countdown to Christmas over on the left. Eventually, I am going to put a list of all the people I am making presents for and scratch them off as they are completed.

The Fair Isle Bag is a gift for someone. I can't really disclose the name just in case they might read my blog. It's going to be hard to let go of it, but I know that it will be going to a good appreciative home. I'm having a hard time trying to decide what to make for people this year, and I'm debating on asking people what they want and forgoing the whole surprise thing. Losing the surprise is kind of a bummer, but I would hate to work really hard on something and it not be worn/used. It's so hard to guess what people want, and it's not like they can go to the store and make and exchange. Ya know what I mean?

My biggest concern is what to make for my sister. I would love to surprise her with something really cool that she will just love to pieces, but I can't really decide what that would be. That is why I'm thinking I should give her some options and let her decide what she wants. However, wouldn't that take all of the fun out of it? Any suggestions?
