Now I'm Knitting?

"Our" Christmas is this coming Saturday. I have final exams to give and grades to do. I have the following preparations completed:
  • grocery shopping, except for the one obligatory "I forgot" item.
  • packages wrapped

I still need to clean, straighten, PUT UP THE TREE, and get the cooking that can be done ahead of time finished. So naturally, I wound yarn and started a knitting project! Makes perfect sense, right? This way, with everything in a disaster, I'm at least calm about it. The project is the Josephine Shawl from Ravelry. I have a little bit of some lovely colors to show off, and I thought this would be a simple way to do it. There are few things more hypnotic and calming than garter stitch.
