You have no idea how happy this made me. I've only finished one present so far (out of five). The second present, while finished, has gone horribly wrong (a pair of mitts that are two different sizes). I might have time to re-knit (for the second time) one of the mitts but nothing else.
Will my friend care? No, of course not because there is still a special box of tea I bought her and a jar of homemade ginger cranberry sauce. And she knows that my very difficult parent went into hospice last week and all of the weight of dealing with everything has fallen on me who lives 1,000 miles away.
So thank you. I feel better now. It doesn't HAVE TO be finished by Christmas.
