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 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.
