Operation Knit Your Heart Out

Cozy knit sweaters like this one from Nordstrom Rack really makes the last week of this semester a bit easier. Sitting on the couch next to the Christmas tree, donning a warm sweater, and sipping a cup of coffee does relieve some of that I-need-to-write-40-pages-by-Friday-and-I’m-going-insane kind of stress. I’ve got a few other stress-relieving sweaters in my tiny closet {i.e. this one from Ruche}. Sweaters are serious business up here in the North, what with all the snow and ice and highs of 20 degrees, so high fives to Nordstrom Rack for making these cozy, stress-relieving sweaters easy to find.

Remember how I cordially introduced you to my Two-Years-In-The-Making scarf yesterday? Remember how that scarf took me two years to complete? Well, I may have officially gone insane {thanks graduate school} because I’ve decided to knit my sisters chunky scarves for Christmas this year.

{cue gasps!, whats!, and no ways! mumbled from the crowd}

Don’t worry. They both already know they’re coming. No secrets being blown here!

So, rather than two years, I’ve only got two and a half weeks to knit two big, cozy scarves. Which means that I’ll probably have to speed up my “knitting pace” so I’m on track for Christmas rather than December 10th, 2016.  I’m calling this endeavor Operation Knit Your Heart Out. The name Operation Grace Needs To Learn How To Knit A Scarf In Less Than Two Years wasn’t exactly “catchy” or “inspirational.”

So who wants to join me? Anyone need some added stress? Anyone else loooove time crunches?

I’ve got two needles and a bag full of yarn. Come at me, Christmas deadline.

Operation Knit Your Heart Out is a GO!
