Halloween and Xmas?
I wanna know what everyone has planned for there first project of the holiday for halloween and Xmas? Anything you wanted to do last year but you didn't get around to? Does anyone have some big plans for someone in there family/group of friends? Anything so big your thinking "better get started now?" I know i do! Or am i the only goober dork who LOVES knitting for the holidays and has already started planning? My plans includes some lovely cable and lace orange and/ or green hats for halloween and some hats with earflaps for xmas. Lots of slippers, mitts, hats, kitchen cloths and hot pads for my Mom...stuff for the dog.
PLEASE! Someone relate! I can't be the only one.

Yup, I actually have all my Christmas knitting planned and I've already started. I'm making an afghan for my dad and step mom and my mil and fil, and I have started both. I've ordered the yarn for Tori's shawl and dh can cozy, and the pattern book for Jeremiah's toys. I finished a hat that came out too smal for a baby for it's the first of Belle's doll clothes. I have everything else, I think. Oh I may need to get more yarn for one of the afghans....

Most of it is quick items, the only ones that are going to take more time is the afghans....

Last year I knit for my DGD and DIL, this year, my guys both want socks. I knit so slowly, that's all I can get done, beside my other projects. Sewing quite a few things though.

I've thought about it, since I have to finish them so much earlier this year in order for them to arrive in time for Christmas.

For my mother I was thinking about this Slant Pocket Bag

For my nieces probably matching Summerlin dresses (from Ravelry) and a toy of some sort -- probably the Honey Bunny.

For MB a stole/shawl (pattern tbd), Bug I would love to knit him a sweater using cotton yarn but don't think that's realistic & will probably knit him a hedgehog family & find him a set of Jan Brett books to go with them (he has let me know he isn't too happy that I haven't brought mine to his house lately), Ladybug likes to sleep with several bunnies and I was thinking of Honey Bunny for her as well & some books or a Summerlin dress.

DB is hard to figure out, as well as the other male members of my family. Dad would like anything I make him, but my brothers are a bit picky & my SIL is worse. A few years ago I crocheted some fun flip flops & she liked them so much she gave them to one of her sisters.

For friends I'm going to attempt to knit snowflakes. I love crocheting snowflakes, but this will be my first year knitting some.

I have started planning, so that is good! I'll finalize my plans because I am going to go to Honolulu in September & am excited about being able to explore several LYS & hopefully pick up supplies for the gifts.
