I restarted the mittens, but now they're too big and I'm beginning to feel burned out on knitting. I may go back and finish the smaller ones after all and call it a day; if they don't fit I'll just promise to make new ones after Christmas; deadline-free.
My older siblings are going back to Chicago today unexpectedly, so I won't be spending Christmas/Chanukah with them after all and I guess I'll just have to mail their gifts. All that time could have been spent on mittens, darn it.
Other than that, I'm quite miserable, thank you. I'm beginning to wonder if this depression has a capital D.
