Trip wires and deadlines

I'm coming down to the wire now and I have a bad feeling that I'm not quite going to make it on all the projects I hoped to get done.

I'm only part way through spinning the wool for my dad's hat. The resulting yarn is wonderful, but I won't have enough to complete the project and knit it in the next 15 days....

Well, I might if I didn't have all these other projects to work on, too.

There is the tea cozy for my mother-in-law.

Then I have a hat to finish for Allison. (I had completed another one for her, but my niece also wanted a red hat, so I decided to make a different version of the hat with a little more grown-up feel for Allison.) I will get this one done.

I've started a hat for Ken in Navy Blue Merino that I purchased. He will be able to wear this one with his uniform on those very cold winter nights.

I'm still working on my mom's lace scarf.

I have decided to give Wes and John money. Matthew will probably end up with a gift certificate for someplace.

And my red socks are just about ready for a heel flap but they will have to wait until all these other projects are finished.

Welcome to the Christmas Nutters Knitalong! Yes hats are the problem at the moment aren't they? Nice WIP's by the way.
