Christmas gifts?
Just wondered if anyone had started their Christmas knitting yet, if so what are y'all making?
I haven't started, would love to finish Moms vest for her by then, but we'll see.
Also, I really need to make my Dad a hat this year, he wanted one last year, but I only had time for a scarf. Any ideas on fav. yarn for hat? (little pressed for money, so inexpensive would be great)

Hi jberry,

I started on a Christmas in June. It's a blanket OR Comforter for our son's bed. It takes 88 squares to make it. I don't even have half them made yet. Some are already stitched togather though.

NOw I have other things in mind to knit after I'm finish with it.

So far my knitting is still in the planning and the ordering stage. I am going to be making clogs, bags, scarves, weaters and face cloths. My daughter is making purses for her grandmothers, and ds is making coasters for his grandparents. So far I have gotten the wool for dd's purses and she is set to start this week. ds is still learning knit stitch though he really wants to make coasters. My lys is having a sale next week so I will be getting some stuff then. I feel really behind on my list though. I am starting the facecloths tonight after I get finished with ds wallaby today!
Recent FO:Damask just needs a handle and some waxed cording.
3 pair of clogs
OTN: Wonderful Wallaby for dd(on hold)
Pigeldy done but needs to be seamed and felted
Thorne market bag
Clogs (to replace shawls)
Christmas Stocking
In line to be cast on:Clogs (2 more pair)
scarf for ds
cat scarf for ds#2
2 booga bags

I am still in the planning stage as well, but I think I'm good to start soon. My rule this year is simple, but make it look complicated. So everyone is getting something either cabled or felted!
I knit because the voices tell me to

I just received the yarn for my first Christmas projects yesterday. I'm making my grandfather a scarf (probably Irish Hiking Scarf) and my grandmother some felted slippers out of the Knit Picks Shamrock yarn in Dougherty. Mainly because we're Irish and their last name is Dougherty so when I saw that yarn I knew I had to make them gifts with it. I probably won't start them until next month though. I have some birthday presents to finish first.

I'm still in the planning stages, but I have several ideas I'm cooking up. I just priced some yarn at Knitpicks yesterday for a sweater for my Mom.

Because most of my family still lives in central New York, I'm thinking scarves and hats for everyone.

We'll see how that goes,

i started last month... making weasley sweaters for my youngest two boys (gods it's boring... stockingette stitch for the whole thing)... not making MIL anything (esp after finding out the only thing she's used that i've ever made her was an afghan... she doesn't want the rest to "get messed up" so why bother?)
nada. taking a break.

I too am still in the planning stages. I'm making everyone small-ish gifts; no sweaters or blankets. I making a few Fetching's, a Calorimetry or two, a couple of felted purses, 2 stuffed animals, some hats, and I don't remember what else. Some of you are quite ambitious with your blankets and sweaters and complicated cables. Go you!!
