I'm in work mode trying to get everything ready for Christmas and this is the week for festivities at the office. We have a lunch on Friday and a gift exchange. The lunch is a pitch in type thing so I still have something to make for that and I have to pick up a gift for that exchange. My husband's office is having a pitch in lunch the same day. So there will be very little knitting this week. The good news is vacation starts Friday afternoon!
The department I'm part of at the office exchanges gifts too. I joined this department about three years ago just before Christmas. The department is small - three ladies plus me - so exchanging gifts isn't too bad. But the first year I didn't know they exchanged. And it was kind of awkward at the end of our annual planning meeting when the other pulled out gifts for everyone and I didn't have anything to give. But this year I'm prepared. I have some homemade carmel and little candle votives wrapped up with a Peppermint Ballband wash cloth tied in a bow. I thought they came out pretty cute!
