In an effort to save me the stress of pre-Christmas plans, I've decided to let things happen or not. I remember last year how relieved I was to get back to MY knitting. For my family, I can knit them stuff anytime of the year. When I make it 'for Christmas' I feel like I'm on a deadline and begin to resent the project.

So, I'll do what I want, when I want! So there, Christmas list!! :rofling:

I'm free!!! (except for those few things. . . . . :rollseyes: )

Everyone is getting a scarf! Quick, easy, and not all that expensive. Only 3 more & I'm DONE. ((My niece is getting my latest Teddy Bear))

I'm not knitting for Christmas, since I've been knitting I've knit for others...of which I love!!! But, now, I have made a vow (have a knitting buddy watching to see that I keep it ) that I am knitting for Lonnie and me. It was a very 'soothing' decision after just doing afghans for wedding gifts & right after the KP socks & several other projects with deadlines, so I feel very good about the decision :D.
I agree with Ingrid, can and do knit for family any time & all of the time, so not for Christmas this year :D .
Glen, scarves are always a winner! And teddy bears are way too sweet, love it!
What about you, kitkat, are you knitting for Christmas, are you feeling rushed or are you on schedule?

uhhhhh... I've just begun, and have a LONNNNG ways to go :|.

am working on the first blanket, pic in my blog thread. 1 more blanket the same size to go.
have WOTA but haven't started the 5 pairs of cloggies yet.
still have to buy Kureyon and Cascade for a bag.

If I can do 1 foot of blanket per week I think I'll be doing good. big *IF* there tho :|.

the cloggies *should be* fast. but we'll see how well they fit.

I'm too busy knitting baby gifts to worry about Christmas gifts. I'll buy gifts this year. Besides, I like to keep them guessing at what they'll get. lol

I have several different lists:

Will do for shore:
Scarves for SIL and SM (one with Divine, one with this funky stuff)
Felted bag for son's girlfriend
Quicky scarves for 4 girlfriends (fun fur type stuff)

If I get around to it:
Mini poncho/shawl/shrug for Mom ( I have funky stuff for 3 of these)

Dream projects:
felted clogs for the boys (I am shooting for valentines day for those)
Mini poncho/shrug/shawl for SIL and SM

One year I decided to do bed spread size quilts for my two sons and my exboyfriends son. Huge mistake....I did all three in the same pattern. Way too much of the same thing. The next year I decided to do lapquilts for my 5 nieces and nephews. I brilliantly started THOSE on Thanksgiving weekend. I did them in various flannels. (these are all teenagers). 3 of them got them complete, and the other two were completed but not quilted. Both of those sets of projects were just too much pressure. The truth is, I haven't really quilted since (it was almost two years ago) because I was fried from it. So now I think small dream bigger :XX:

Kelly are you SERIOUSLY going to do 14 of them, BY DECEMBER 25th???? HELLO, MCFLY!!!!!!!

Once I master the clogs which most likely won't happen until after the big day I figure those could be next year's niece/nephew gift, but only if I start them early! In the meantime, I filled tote bags with scarf yarn and the appropriate needles so that I can have those projects going on the go.
