View Full Version : Holiday Gifts

I know it's just now summer but I knit slowly so I've already started thinking about holiday gifts. Thankfully, my gift giving list is short.

I'm going to try to stay away from scarves because I find them a tad boring.

So far I've finished one pair of felted slippers (from Donna Wellman's free pattern http://people.delphiforums.com/knit_chat/knitchat/patterns/feltedslipper.htm and I like them very much I just have to figure out how to make them even longer since both me and my mom have canoes for feet!

I always give soap for gifts, so I'm going to make a few soap socks. Little bags you put the soap in and use it as a washcloth/soap holer.

I thought about doing socks, but those are pretty labor intensive for me.

What's on your gift knitting list for the holidays? I need more ideas.

what about hats and/or mittens? Felted coasters? Felted purses?

My friends love my little felted purse...it only took one skein and went quickly.

My friends love my little felted purse...it only took one skein and went quickly. Oooh did you use a pattern? I like that idea. I need quick ideas since we don't draw names until Thanksgiving :roll:

I'll probably whip up some hats and scarves and just hope they match up with some peeps. If not I guess I can give them to parents. Slippers/clogs would be good.

Not knitting related but this year I am making gormet mustards as well :) Yes, I always plan this far ahead (yet I don't shop until December... go figure :roll: )

Gourmet mustards? That sounds interesting. Care to share?

I love the ideas so far! Thanks.
