I haven't decided what (if anything) I'm going to make Christmas gifts.

I'm really just making a sleeve for Christmas...my dad asked me to knit him a cable sweater in August and there is no way I can do that for Christmas...so I thought it would be funny to have him open a sleeve on Christmas

CUTE pumpkins!
I want to make one of those glow-in-the-dark jack-o-lanterns, and use some of that new Bernat glowing yarn.

Now that is funny! Sounds like something I'd do...

Rita the look lovely! What patterns did you use? (Listen to me, like I need more patterns on my queue )

Um Yeah My list is way long
Lets see I have decided to knit or crochet everyone's christmas presents this year so I have no time for halloweeny type things.
This is just the start of the list
Hat and socks for sis in law- all I have to do is weave in all my ends
Matching hats for neices, not even on the needles yet
Green hat for brother No 1~ actually finished with ends tucked in
Purple Hat for mum and slippers- hat done, still looking for a pattern I like for the slippers
Dishcloths for dad- alaska one and moose one done tails to be tucked
Knitted wall hanging for sis-in-laws parents- On the needles, will have to post a pic when it is done.
Slippers for stepdad- need good pattern, looking for recommendations!
Purple and gold socks for brother no2
Hat for sis in law no two
Looking at patterns for those two projects also.
Gee I think thats it. Oh cept for the sweater for my daughter.

I do not tend to knit many presents for christmas but i am making another hat and scarf set for my friend . The scarf is underway and it would be great if i could finish them before the months over
I also need to start a baby blanket for a baby due during the festivities. I plan to use the moc cable pattern , So it will take time . An early start will be good
