Hi Cheley!

I'm so sorry to hear about your eye! I'm in the same boat, we waited until the last minute to get all our presents for our kids, I just finished wrapping them!

Every year I promise that when someone's birthday comes around I am going to get their Christmas present as well but I never do it. I always think of excuses of why I shouldn't but then, come December I'm kicking myself for waiting until it's too late!

Good luck! Better late than never! Merry Christmas!
Late at night, when the family's all asleep,
you will find me counting stitches
instead of counting sheep!

I'm on Etsy when I'm not knitting...

I'm Hartleystudio on Ravelry too!!

I'm wishing you a very speedy recovery! I'm sure if you're a little late the recipients will understand that it's hard to do needle work with one eye!

I'm late for everything LOL Thankfully my kiddo is still small enough that the presents I don't get a chance to wrap can come from Santa :D

Oh man I can't say I was knitting with one eye, but I did spend all day today finishing my moms lace scarf... She doesn't even know it's coming so I could have taken my time and finished it for her bday... but no no I just had to have it done for Xmas.

I finished knitting around 1:30 am, washed it and pinned it out to block in the bathroom. I was finished it totally by 3:30 am... We aren't going to my moms until noon so hopefully there will be enough time for it to dry. I pulled out one of our fans from storage to help speed things up...

It's 4am now on Christmas morning... I guess I should go to bed.

hope you're feeling better!!!

I do that too-we were much, much better overall this year, and we didn't have to wrap presents in the wee hours of the morning (), but unfortunately I didn't manage to finish my Dad's pj pant's I was sewing for him. I just wrapped up what I *had* finished and gave that to him and I actually finished them right after they left. So technically, they were finished, my parents just arrived too early! LOL!!

Of course, there are two knitting projects that I still owe that are not finished. However, I am in the clear because I got other gifts as well for them-my Mom got KP Harmony Options (she loves them! surprise! LOL) and my DSis got flannel pj pants and one half of a two-Moss Grid Towel-set . Somehow I got the first towel done months ago, and this one just got started two days ago (I recently found the project bag that got lost in my closet!).

So as you can see from all these replies, you are not alone! Hang in there, and feel better!
