The minute I saw this pattern I knew it was the right one for Miss Emma. After finishing Joshua’s afghan, however, I thought maybe I should find a simpler one for the sake of time. After browsing Ravelry, there just wasn’t one that caught my eye, and so I began the Honeycomb. I made a little goal that would ensure it’s completion. If I knit so many inches a day, I could finish it in time for Christmas.
Goals are great, but sometimes there’s a time when they just aren’t realistic. And that’s exactly what happened. I chose to be a happy mama, enjoying the holidays, rather than a driven, crazy woman trying to finish a blanket.
So you know what I did? I wrapped that unfinished honeycomb and put it under the tree. You know how hard that was to do? Very hard! And you know what Emma G did? Right after opening it, she promptly brought it over to me, not uttering a single word. She’s hilarious, that girl.
If only Christmas would have waited two weeks…
