You are such a fast knitter I'd say go ahead and knit it up and get it off your plate, then you can enjoy it this Christmas. Of course that's easy for me to say since I'm not the one who has to do it...But then you can get right back to your other projects.


I say put in hold another year if it will be hard to get it done this year. That would just be a source of stress and who wants that!


I'm of the put it off 'til next year mentality...


Hmmmm I think you should pack it away and finish it up for the next holiday season cuz if you were that enthralled by it, you would have finished it by now :) Less stress and you'll have fun decorating for the season.


I vote you finish the tree skirt. You can do it!

Have a great day everyone!


Popping in out of the abyss... :-) My vote is to put it away and stick with the enjoyable knitting. You've had enough stress lately! However, I would try to put it at the top of my list for the new year. That way you'll have the pleasure of knowing it's done for the next holiday season.


I'm gonna go with finishing the tree skirt. You love decorating your home for the holidays and I think you would adore it on your tree. That said, if to finish the tree skirt would cause you undue stress, then definitely don't do it.

Way to backpedal on an issue, huh? Sorry, watching too much West Wing now.

I'm sorry you ripped Ariann, but if you don't like it or the pattern isn't intriguing you, then it's time to drop it. Beryl is a great pattern and I think you will be pleased with the end result.

I love Del;s Gathered Pullover too and it will probably be my next project. I've been all about pullover this winter.


I with the majority, you knit so fast, knit it up. You'll be glad you did when you see the finished skirt under your tree.


I've always suspected magazines intentionally make it hard to distinguish ads from content, to get you to read the ads. (Have you ever tried to locate a particular article in Vogue? You can't, because most of the pages don't even have numbers.)


Oh sweetie, put it off for yet another year and take a bubble bath!

My take is that if you have put it off until now,it's not that important.

Trust me, I know...I'm a recovered type A!

Whether or not to do the tree skirt depends on which will annoy you more... feeling you *have* to knit it, or feeling guilty about not having knit it. My initial thought was "put it away and do it for next year", but then I remembered the stockings that I *still* don't have initials on after several years. I find that I don't think about doing it (at least, not seriously) unless it's close to Christmas, and then I don't do it because I'm "too busy" doing other stuff. So if I'm going to get them done, I pretty much need to do it in the lead-up to Christmas. (Now I just need to remember where I put that gold braid...)
