Let's see. I'm skipping Halloween.

Christmas: I have completed 5 washcloth and back scrubber sets, 1 dust bunny almost done, 1 dust bunny to go. I have one sweater for DD 1/4 done and another one started (her birthday is 4 days after Christmas). Have a few squares done for a lapghan for the ex.

I have started a beaded felt Christmas stocking for DD's boyfriend. Swore I would never make another one since all the other guys I made them for didn't hang around very long. I am not overly fond of this boyfriend of hers so I am hoping the Christmas Stocking Curse will work. If it does, it will be well worth the time spent.

I want to make a hat/scarf/mittens set for my DIL, but don't know if I will get to it.

DGD always comes up with something for me to do for her friends. Have to reserve some time for that.

I think that's it. So far, anyway.

I already have one scarf and hat set made for a friend, have made three mini-stocking ornaments for my class and have the scarf and hat patterns picked out for the girls I babysit and a scarf and hat pattern for another friend. Now, I have to get the yarn!

I've thought about it, since I have to finish them so much earlier this year in order for them to arrive in time for Christmas.

For my mother I was thinking about this Slant Pocket Bag

For my nieces probably matching Summerlin dresses (from Ravelry) and a toy of some sort -- probably the Honey Bunny.

For MB a stole/shawl (pattern tbd), Bug I would love to knit him a sweater using cotton yarn but don't think that's realistic & will probably knit him a hedgehog family & find him a set of Jan Brett books to go with them (he has let me know he isn't too happy that I haven't brought mine to his house lately), Ladybug likes to sleep with several bunnies and I was thinking of Honey Bunny for her as well & some books or a Summerlin dress.

DB is hard to figure out, as well as the other male members of my family. Dad would like anything I make him, but my brothers are a bit picky & my SIL is worse. A few years ago I crocheted some fun flip flops & she liked them so much she gave them to one of her sisters.

For friends I'm going to attempt to knit snowflakes. I love crocheting snowflakes, but this will be my first year knitting some.

I have started planning, so that is good! I'll finalize my plans because I am going to go to Honolulu in September & am excited about being able to explore several LYS & hopefully pick up supplies for the gifts.

holiday knitting
I have plans but will time run out before I finish all I want. It did last year and I still have three scarves on needles and I think I will finish them and work on something new as well. I will add that last year my mate of 27 years passed away just before Halloween and it did put a lot on hold for ......... Still adjusting to being without my other. I knitted for my husband first last year nd my middle son took his gift as I was going to donate it to charity and he said no!! I never did finish my sons scarf to go with his hat and it is half done right now. My list of gifts is long and time always seems to run out before I can finish!!!
