Have I told you how much I hate christmas shopping? Have I also mentioned the I HATE trying to figure out what I should buy for people... now don't get me wrong, I am not a scrooge, but I really don't like buying presents. AND I absolutely don't like being in stores crowded by people trying to buy things and being rude the entire time as if this is the last box of chocolates on the planet!

So... that being said, I have made some gifts this year. I say some because like always I over estimate my dedication to making something and getting it done on time! BUT Isabel's hat is done! I am very proud to say it only took me the two and a half days I said it would and Its beautiful.

But rather than unveil the finished product at once... I'll show you some progress... because progress it good and encouraging.

The best part about this gift is that I was in Michaels with her the other day and she pointed out the very same yarn and said to me that she would absolutely LOVE for me to make her something in this yarn in this color because its her color. I bought this yarn, with her in mind, about 2 months ago and I thought to myself, this is a beautiful color for Isabel. Great minds think alike!

and... here.. it... is!

Once I give it to her I'll post a pic of her wearing it... I was so tempted to ask her to try it on last night, but I resisted so she can be surprised on christmas.

And my dad's getting a hat too... by request, and since I know I can get it done on time... no sweat! Two less presents I have to shop for in the hell that is the mall.

Is it just me or do the holidays bring out the worst in shoppers?

For those of you who have finished your shopping and wrapping like most normal people.. yeah shut up! stop gloating.... I know I suck! and the rest of us that haven't even started yet... good luck!!
