What Do You Want to Knit Now that the Holidays Are Over?
I don't know about anyone else, but now that Christmas (or whatever winter holiday you celebrate, I don't want to exclude anyone!!) is over, what do you want to knit? Are you knitting for yourself or for others? Did you get cool yarns/needles that you are dying to use???

As for me, to start the thread, I need to finish my son's Harry Potter scarf long neglected due to the holidays and then make his hat while it's still cold out and he's still at the age where he would actually wear it. My other son wants a scarf, too. I also have a baby blanket to make for oldest son's teacher who is due in March. I want to make a sweater for my dog and I have the yarn to make an OSU throw for my husband who is about the hugest Ohio State fan I've ever met and I graduated from there so I've met a few!!!

Happy New Year to All and Happy Knitting to You, too!!!

I'm going to finish the clapotis scarf I started for myself, and then do 2 baby blankets for a couple of classmates who are expecting their first babies in march and april.

I started a pair of fancy-cabled Scottish knee socks - intended for the County Fair next fall and [I hope!] destined for a blue ribbon - and will finish these up. They take a lot of attention, which is good because we had to put our little dachshund down yesterday and I need to hide in a difficult project for a while.

I also want to finish a pair of socks for my nephew's birthday.

PS - I also need to prepare for my class of beginning knitters, starts on Jan. 2! And get my website expanded greatly. And make a dvd for teaching non-knitters how to knit Continental-style.

I still have some things to make - I made felt clogs as gifts this year. My parents saw a picture of them the other day and now they each want a pair! I wore my "pidge" scarf to work and one of my friends wants one. And another friend gave me this huge carton of vintage knitting, needlepoint and crochet books - when I asked him how much - he said he just wanted me to make him a scarf. Then I have 2 birthdays next month so I am making scarves for both of them...and I usually knit something for my assistants for Valentine's Day!

I think by Jusy 4th I will be able to knit for me... oh no that is when I start Christmas knitting again!

It never ends and I do not even have a scarf for myself yet this year...

Well I am almost finished with another beanie for myself, and then I need to get back to work on the Palindrome scarf I am making for a friend.

After that, who knows?

Dot -- so sorry to hear about your dachshund. I just got a dog last year after losing one we loved dearly in 2004, it took a while for me to be ready to have another one. I just wanted to offer my condolences, that's so hard!!!!!

Thank you. Yes, it is hard. But she had had severe seizures for almost a year - and Christmas, she seized almost non-stop. Horrible to see - but it made the Decision a no-brainer.

Oh yeah, she was also incontinent. I created a set of Doggie Piddle-Pants to keep her diapers on... took her like 3 days to figure how to get that diaper off without losing her piddle-pants. So much for that!

I was lucky when our dog passed away that she just went naturally, in her sleep at home, but I understand about the medical issues -- she was diabetic and had thryoid problems so I was doing insulin shots and thyroid medicine daily for the last couple of years of her life. Good luck -- I hope your knitting can help your healing process!

I want to make socks and a pair of handwarmers I had an idea for. I'd also like to make a sweater, but I doubt that will happen this year.

I've got 2 pair of socks, each half done, that have been patiently waiting for Christmas knitting to be finished, so I need to get back to them. I received bamboo sock yarn as a gift, so I have to start at least one of them soon. And I got a pattern and linen to make a string bag so I need to start that soon. In fact, I need to search for some string bag pattersn as I want more of a solid bottom then the pattern that came with the yarn.

After all that, I'd like to make me a scarf. I need to test the cable pattern first, though, before I find some super-duper soft wool for the project. It will be summer before I get this started!!
