LOL!!! Yeah, I proscratinate too... My sister had begged for a knit hat, scarf and mitt set for Christmas. I found the patterns, I ordered the wool she wanted and when it arrived (in early October) I tossed it under my bed since I was super bogged down with some other projects. I pulled the wool out last night when I had an "OH NO!!!" moment. LUCKILY, my sister is away at university and I often make up packages to send to her (she stresses easily) so I had a box of scented soap, flannel pj's, a mixed CD, slippers and a few misc items that can be wrapped up and turned into a Xmas gift.
I'm still on the hook for the scarf, hat and mitts though, I told her I was a little delayed on the project but they would DEFINITELY be ready for Xmas 2006.
