I just spent most of the day deciding on yarns online for scarves for my three sisters. The patterns are from Victorian lace Today. It took a long time to find one site where I could find/like yarn for all three projects for three verydifferent people. But I succeeded with Wool Girl on line and got free shipping to boot.

well, not exactly xmas, but my mom is getting a cabled purse and matching scarf for her bday in sept, just got the yarn and pattern today.
Otherwise, scarves and hats. dH is getting an irish hiking scarf and matching hat for xmas.
I have a new rule for presents though, because I tend to take on too much at one time. Quick too knit but looks complicated. That's why everyone is getting something cabled this year

:happydancing: I'm done... except for my dad and I'm not really sure if I'll knit him something or not... I made him Dashings so thought I might try to do the cable and make a matching hat...

I have bath mitts, dish rags for the n'bors that I'll throw in some little lotions and soap, scarves basically for the family except one hat...

All I have left to do for Christmas is buy my kids their gifts :rofling: and I have a head start on that...

Felted bags for Mom, sisters and sister-in-law, ribbed scarf for brother, and a few other things I haven't figured out yet. Maybe the felted clogs from Fiber Trends. These clogs are soooo cute, and pretty fast to make. If you haven't seen them yet, search the KAL for them.
