Holiday Knitting

Holiday knitting can really throw you for a loop. I don't have too many projects to finish for the holidays, but I also don't have a whole lot of free time, so it's all been spent knitting knitting knitting! It sounds a lot nicer than it is. I've actually been really stressed, and I feel pressured to finish stuff before it's really done just to save time and so I can move on to the next thing. But then I'd be really upset because it would come out terrible looking (I'm a perfectionist. Can you tell?)

Although, as I was walking along, knitting in public, I got kind of a mixed-bag compliment. Someone was really impressed with my knitting, saying "oh wow. It looks good, really good. Store-bought good!" I know how she meant it, and to be honest, that's the type of quality I'm aiming for. But I want to be better than mass-produced, cheaply made products. But I think that's just me...
