I just counted and realized that my niece is already 22 months! I didnt even realize that. But If they would have fit a toddler then they may fit her. Im not sure. I may see her in a few days so I'll check out her feet, lol. Also Im thinking it might not be too hard to attach a sole so then she can walk about in them. We live in the middle of the desert, so there shouldnt be any problems with snow. And, her birthday is in late January, so I can start them after Christmas.

Oo! I want to join!

I don't have an extensive list, and I've already made one of the gifts and gifted it before Christmas (because it got cold and I wanted her to have it early).

But I need to make:

Branching Out for my bf's mother (maybe I won't give it to her if it's a disaster though)

A pair of socks for bf

Something for bf's dad's partner - I consider this the non-essential gift because I don't yet know how she'll react. But she's a sweet lady so I think she will be quite delighted.

Im still on the scarf. I was going to start the earwarmer, until I realized that I was kntting the scarf on the needles I needed for the earwarmer. And I had started the mug cozy but then I realized that I had measured my swatch wrong and it was actually 5 stitches to an inch, not 6. And then I had to frog it all because it was ten stitches too long and ended up being 12 inches intead of 10 1/2. I really need to invest in a tape measure rather than a ruler I printed off the internet. Im going to look for one today, so then I can measure how long the scarf needs to be and then measure the stripes and calculate how many more stripes I need.


ETA: I just realized that lots of KAL's have little signature icons. Do you guys think we need some? I could probably whip up a couple in photoshop. What would we want on them?
Whoa Chris, those KAL buttons so much better then what I was going to suggest (holly with yarn instead of berries). I've already saved the blue one and it's about to be added.
On the tape measure, in Oz we had a sale at lincraft where if you spent $30 you got a free tapemeasure. and coz I'm so frequently there they let me have one even though I was a couple of bucks short (ask and you shall receive ) Check out if somewhere near you has a freebie offer-it's not adding to your stash, It's stocking up on necessities to get a Freebie
And just to panic-I mean MOTIVATE everyone... 45 days!!! (I need to get my butt into gear)

AAAgh only 45. I am dying. I have got to start going faster. Perhaps I need to just knit. No housework, no homeschooling, no cooking, no nothing til I catch up. The scarf I am working on is up to 30 inches. What is a good length for a manly scarf? 50? 60? I will probably work on in it the rest of this evening. I at least want to get to where I have to change skeins tonight. Tomorrow I am going to try for at least twenty rows on my wrap. Then I will work on either my stocking or finish the scarf. I really need to start getting somethings actually finished. I have so much to do.
And yes calling me Melissa works for me.

Squee! Hobs and Firey Vixxen, you guys have no idea how happy it made me to see those icons in your signatures. I was trying to make the icons smaller but I didnt think the words would be big enough. So sorry, hobs, if its a little too big for you. And Vixxen, Im glad you downsized it. It looks rather good. I kept trying to make a mantle with a knit stocking, but my copy and paste tactics werent working. My photoshop skills aren't the greatest. I ended up just image searching christmas and got the pictures and then added the words. So I cant take all the credit. But, if anybody with better photoshop skills than me wants to give it a shot, go ahead. In the meantime, I'll work on trying to make a decent icon with Vixxens idea on it. I may be able to do it.

Also, Vixxen, what is Oz?

Melissa, I usually just end up knitting the scarves to the point where I can hang them around my neck and have the cast on and the needle at my waist. And then I bind off and hope to God the person I making the scarf for has a torso like mine. But I would make it 60 to be sure. A little long wouldnt hurt.

Okay, I have finished the back and one sleeve of my DD's Pullover. So, it is halfway finished (unless you count the seaming and such) but I have one more sleeve and the front to finish THEN I have a front right section to finish on a duster, two sleeves and the front ribbed band (I would say that the duster is about half done as well) and then I have a Dickenson Pullover to start and finish, I think that if i finish the two half done sweaters by december then I can do it. I bet the Dickenson Pullover goes by pretty fast, I love to make cabled things and i know that i will WANT to work on it (it's 3 AM and I keep telling myself "just one more row")

Then I still have some felted bags to finish (and some to start)
and a scarf... AAAAH I dread scarves, they take soooooo long and they have to be really long, the scarf is WAAAAAY at the bottom on my list of priorities though, if I dont have the time to finish it then I will buy one and pretend that i made it

Drummerboi I love the KAL designs you made but i don't know how to add it to my sig. How do i do it?

uggg i only have 20" done on my sis' scarf and still haven't added any more to my grandfathers scarf. will be working on that tomorrow. i may have to call in sick to work just to get this done. the problem is i have been working 11 to 12 hr days at work.

i NEED a day off just to catch up on my knitting. especially since i found out i can't go home for thanksgiving and i had been counting on a 6hr plane ride of uninterrupted knitting. which means 12 hrs roundtrip. damnit. so i think a feel the flu coming. yep i think i feel it.
