Yep! I've started. Last year I made hats and mittens for all my nieces & nephews (9 of 'em) and I had a hard time getting them all done and got quite bored doing the same pattern. So this year I've decided to do up a bunch of headbands for the girls and then throw in some "girlie" stuff...lip gloss, lotion, etc. I'm stumped on the 2 boys though and I still have to think of something for my mom.

I have finished a few things already. A santa hat and scarf set. I'm working on another hat/scarf set for my niece and almost finished with that one. I've planned a few dish cloths and they're next. I also want to make some felted potholders for a friend. I tried it twice and they came out so misshaped. Yuck. Gotta try again. I don't give away much of my work outside of the immediate family other than my neice, who really appreciates it and gushes over the presents. She can't wait till she's big enough to try it herself.

Making my list and checking it twice...
So tonight while going through my new KnitPicks catalog, I decided to look up some Knitpicks yarn that I have in my stash. I looked through different patterns on Rav that were knit with Suri Dream and cam across a simple scarf that only takes 1 ball. This prompted me to being my Christmas Knitting List - cause last year I get all whacked out trying to remember what I planned on making for who.

So my list is started and I have the pattern name, yarn name, # of skeins, who it's for and if it's completed columns. I hope this will keep me organized. I tried to pick simple, 1-2 skein pattens to keep the stress level down. Plus I think it will give me enough time to get all of the knitting complete in plenty of time. Yeah me for being proactive
Knit On...

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

I started in... I think February lol. So far, I've done three pairs of socks, a pullover for my 2 year old niece, and three hats. I have two more hats left and then I'm done!

Christmas gifts already
I have always been an early Christmas shopper but since I have been knitting and giving knitted gifts I have to start even earlier and often run out of time. Last Christmas I intended to give my daughter in law the Knitting Pure and Simple Bulky Hooded Vest but didn't get it done. It is almost complete for this year! I am also making a matching vest for her 2 year old daughter. Another daughter in law is getting a cardigan that I have yet to find a pattern for. She is a yoga teacher and I would love to find something appropriate for yoga. Anyone have a pattern idea that I could use?
Happy knitting

I got the hooded scarf pattern from Interweave Knits Winter 2008 issue. You can get the issue here:

As for reading the pattern I'm not sure how to help until you actually get the pattern in front of you. It's easider to help you interprete the pattern when you have it in front of you. Do you already know how to knit? If not review the videos on here. It will be a great help. The pattern is not a beginner pattern though but you will learn alot!!
