Christmas Knitting

My Christmas knitting is finished. Scott still needs to finish a hat, weave in a few ends and find the perfect buttons, but we're going to make it and with very little stress. What's the secret? I slashed my 'to knit' list and split the remaining list with Scott.

Here was what we planned:
5 scarves
5 pairs of socks
1 sweater
1 possible afghan
1 pair of gloves

Here's what happened:
6 scarves (2 crocheted by me, 2 knitted by me, two cowls knitted by Scott)
2 pair of socks (knit by me)
1 pair of gloves (knit by me)

That's 3 pairs of socks, 1 sweater and 1 afghan short of my preliminary goal. I'm okay with it. It was only a preliminary list anyway. The only project I regret is not starting a sweater for Scott. The sweater could conceivably be finished before the end of the year, but only if I could hold my head up long enough to cast on. Anyone else feeling congested, vaguely achy, fatigued and unfocused the last few weeks?
