1. Make a list. Lists are your friends. At the very least, write down what item you would like to knit to whom and how much yarn you need for each of them (yardage rather than weight!). Try to make an estimation how much time you need for each item.
  2. Start with the smaller items on your list and check if you needed more or less time to knit them than you estimated. Also, this is the perfect opportunity to find out how many yards you can knit per week. If you are not sure you will be ready in time, remove some of the larger items from your list and choose smaller ones instead.
  3. Don’t stress. Christmas is all about love so believe me it’s much better to give a hat you enjoyed working on than a sweater you struggled with because the ‘damn thing will never be ready’.
