Hey everybody. I'm going to join this KAL.

48 DAYS?! Wow... I didn't know it was that close!!! Here's my To Knit list:

socks for grandma
set of dishcloths for sister, aunt, other grandma, sister in law
golf club cover set for dad and brother
hat or scarf for other brother
cosmetic purse for BFF
Fiber Trends Huggable Hedgehog for 2 year old cousin
scarf or hat for another brother
basket liners for my mom (to use in her Longerberger baskets)

Yep, so there's my list. I'm pretty sure I won't get to everything on it, but I'll try to do my best to make whatever I can.

Howdy I'd like to join this KAL, too. Maybe we can all keep each other motivated! I don't have as much to do as most people on here, but with two jobs it's still a lot! So far I've committed myself to 3, maybe 4, quick-knit afghans, 5 Christmas stockings, a hat, a bag, and maybe a scarf. How many days left until Christmas? lol

When am I ever going to find the time to finish the scarf, start and finish the earwarmer and the gift bag and then knit a mug cozy as well! Thats it, next year, Im just buying eveybody their own knitting needles and they can knit their own stuff.
Make the scarf and ear warmers and put the gift bag off until after Christmas, just tell her it is coming. Then she will have something to store your lovely knitted items in during the summer. That was you will have more time to make the cup cozies and things. YOU CAN DO THIS!!! Good luck!

Alright! Good Idea! Thanks for the pep talk, err... Knitter? lol I think we need to have names we can call each other, other than the usernames. You guys can call me Christen, or Chris, whchever is easiest for you to remember.

Also, welcome to knitwit and ladyjessica! The more the merrier, and everyones welcome no matter if you have one thing or 50 to knit before Christmas.

for the handle on my damask bag I went to walmart and got some of their cord from the sewing section (it's the same stuff they use for curtains or bedspread trim, you know, that silky rayon/cotton curtain tie-back rope) I used the thicker rope to make a 'braid knot' and then i secured it onto the bag with a very tight knot, I also bought some thinner matching rope instead of waxed cord like the pattern calls for. Get a few more yards than you think you need, extra is way better.

Welcome, Scout! If you dont mind, what are the baby ugg booties? Do they really look like uggs? If so, they would be great for my niece! Can you share the pattern?

Thanks for the welcome.

I think the booties are too die for and they do look like little ugg boots.
