well.... im not knitting anything for christmas specifically, but I am working on a baby blanket for a cousin's wife's coming child that is due on December 20th (close enough to christmas ). A friend of mine wants me to make her a matching hat to the scarf that I made her for her birthday a year or so ago in LB Jiffy Denver(her birthday is in December, which makes a scarf a perfect gift).

I am knitting my youngest soon and his girfriend an afghan so when he gets transfered to a new duty station, they will have the afghan to remind them of the time they spent in Key West. After I get that finished, I have a sweater planned for my oldest son who is a special case. Everything has to be downsized to fit him. He is a very petite young man. Both in weight and height.

I'm knitting 2 lace scarves, but not sure of the pattern yet. I really like the Cat's Paw pattern, but still looking around.

I'm knitting 2 pair of thick wool socks for my dad and brother, as they're often outside in the winter.

Not sure what else yet.

I'm sick and tired of my knitted gifts being unappreciated, so only a few special people are getting knit gifts this year. I'm knitting Selbu mittens form the book Selbuvotter for my Mom, one of my sisters and my best friend for their gifts. I'll be baking for a few others, and buying for my niece's.

I have a thing for knitting socks for my mom for Christmas and I need to find some yarn that I want to use. Mom is allergic to wool so I may try Bamboo this time and see how she does with those.

Like lizard, I'm not knitting specifically for Christmas, I'm just knitting as I have time. Probably things wouldn't be ready in time anyway,... so when I have finished that lacescarf, and other things, I decide to give them away for the nextbest holiday :D
That way, I'm not under pressure to finish this and that...

I've finally planned ahead this year! So far, I'm nearly finished with two little felted bags in UGA colors for my nieces. I'm working on a Cable Comfort Throw for my FIL, a Romance Reversible Shawl for my MIL (in a nice darker green, not the pink!

That's all that's actually on the needles so far. Still have quite a few others who will get something knitted, but I haven't figured out the rest yet!---oh, some washclothes for our band director gifts, to go with some soaps, etc..

I just finished sewing quilted stockings for the troops. Every year red cross collects them and fills with goodies and send to soldiers. I have 46 done and I think I might stop there. We did 10 a piece last year and ended up with 800 from our sewing group, this year they want 1000 so we all stepped it up a bit. I am worn out officially now on christmas already.
I knitted hot water bottle for someone with MS who lives in a damp 300 year old house in new england, a clapotis for my mom and working on a quilt for my sister, if I actually do it, ( I been promising for years a large bed quilt for her but I dont do larger than crib size usually) A felted hat for friend and until I hit the local yarn shop I dont have any more ideas.

Blankets for my niece and nephew, the niece's is done and nephew's is two blocks away and needs to be sewn together. I am also making an afghan for my MIL, about half way there on that one. I want to make a shawl with a lace pattern of some kind for my mother but haven't found a pattern that I like yet. And of course some mittens, one pair needs skulls on them. So far that's it, but I'm sure this list will grow it always does.
