But this year I have vowed to try extra hard to plan ahead! My first challenge was my niece's birthday coming up this May. This time I began knitting right after New Years after I found this pattern for a girl's ruffled bolero in the December holiday issue of Knit Simple magazine.
Best of all about planning ahead is I feel so relieved. No more scrambling and staying up until midnight tediously weaving in yarn ends. Also, now I finally have time to wrap it up all nice and give it properly. It definitely is better to plan ahead but there's still a lot more birthdays coming up so I guess I'd better stay busy!
