has anyone started on christmas gifts already?
I thought we could start a thread for those of us who are starting on our gift knitting. Right now I am working on a Mistake Rib Beanie for my boyfriend. After which I think I will start the Dead Fish hat from knitty for my dad.

Me, me, me
I started about a month ago. I just finished a felted tote for SIL andI'm working on a 6hr Afghan for my grandma. I also bought some yarn for other Christmas projects.

Last year was my 1st Christmas as a knitter and I thought I was going to make all these great gifts. I ran outta time, so I am starting now. I will do the best I can and whatever I finish I will give. I refuse to stress about it this year, I don't want knitting to become a chore.
Knit On...

I have three passions:
1. My husband
2. My daughter
3. Knitting
Everything else can wait.

Yep just started yesterday. I am knitting on a hooded scarf for my little sister.

Let me see if I have my list ready?

My twin wants a cardigan for around the house-rockafeller cardigan from wenlan chia

my brother got greedy and he wants a cardigan, hat and fingerless gloves with a mitten cover (but that's ok he is very knit worthy he wore out the first sweater I gave him)

my brother-in-law wants a viking hat

my mother wants a scarf

my best friend wants a scarf and

bf daughter wants something pretty (havent decided yet what to give her. she is 6)

and I think that's is everyone.

I have been thinking about it. I decided my first lace project is going to be a Christmas gift for my great-aunt. Not that she needs another scarf, but she is appreciative of things like that.

The rest of them, I have no clue.

I am thinking about it. No decisions yet. What does a Dead Fish hat and a Mistake Rib Beanie look like? The names are interesting? I am looking for a hat for one of my sons which has a spiral look when you look at the top of it. I just made a decision, lol. He does like beanies, any suggestions and the spiral is for him?

All I know I'm making for sure, is our nieces and nephews are all getting hats/mitts/scarves made from Briggs & Little wool, for warm and toasty outside play.

I've mostly been thinking about non-knitted things. I've been knitting lots of dishclothes this year, so I'll be giving those as add-ons, for the most part. But I have a LONG list to buy for, so you better believe I've been thinking about it!
