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 got a good start on Christmas. I believe I've got all of my yarn bought. For the moms I'm doing felted purses and my SIL is getting some dish clothes and such. She got married in February so I know these will be a good gift.

As for the men I have not clue.
