Christmas knitting
Yep- I started quite some time ago! I am making an elephant blanket for my niece. I knit slowly too. And I have many other projects on the go. (but not necessarily for Christmas) although I am hoping to get all of my projects done before Christmas

I have a cable scarf I just finished for a Chinese Christmas gift. I just need to get started on the hat to match. Sock monkeys for the kids sounds like a wonderful idea. I may start one after I finish the baby blanket I'm knitting for my daughter who is due in July.

I've started on my hats and scarfs for the soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan for Operation Gratitude. I've been involved for about 4 yrs. and it is so rewarding.

i have my list made.... i'll start working on them once i finish a few things for myself.

This year i'm not giving handmade gifts to anyone i haven't given birth to. Last year I stressed and ended up overdoing it so that i ended up with that claw type thing going on with my hands, this year i was in a car accident and have a lot going on in addition to being unable to sit or stand for any length of time and i can't knit while laying down (injured my back, still dealing with testing to see just how bad the damage is) so only my 2 youngest are getting anything handmade.

i have an afghan for my oldest almost done (crocheted, and almost done because i'm almost out of yarn and it's been discontinued... but he wants a lapghan so it's all good) and then i have the colors for my youngest.

if i get them done in time then i'll probably work on sweaters for them.

Sounds like quite a selection of Christmas goodies - hope they turn out well!

I had another look at my golf club cover and noticed that it has the ladder effect in the shaping and not all the way from the cast-on. I still haven't decided what to do with it, but it doesn't look as bad as I thought at first.

Not sure what to do next - a phone cover or a wash cloth maybe.
