AS soon as I finish the last baby blanket I am working on, I have to get started on my Christmas gifts. My Daughter-in-law wants a slouchy hat. She said black or white , pattern or no pattern, leaves it up to me. Grandson wants a pair of fingertip gloves , a hat and a scarf. He is 8 years old and thinks the mittens I made last year are now too babyish for him. Then I have two pairs of mittens for two little boys that come through my crossing( I am a school crossing guard) So yes I will be busy in the next few weeks

Daylily, another one tomorrow

This year seems like such a good year to knit gifts - lots of options for cowls, little (crescent) shawls, convertible or fingerless gloves, slouchy hats. Now to just get started...

I love knitting holiday gifts. I need to get on them soon! I have a scarf for my sister and a slouchy hat on the needles. But fingerless mitts always end up being quick gifts for sure!

My grandson wanted fingerless mitts last year. I made the mitts and a scarf out of Cascades Superwash Merino. (So my daughter could wash them in the machine). The mitt pattern was "Fits Like A ... Glove" by Nancy Lindberg. It sounds like you will be busy, but the best kind of busy.

Normally I would have my Christmas knitting nearly done by now. This year, however, I had shoulder surgery in May, and although I am back to knitting, I think I will only squeak out a sweater or two for my granddaughter. While I am back to knitting, I cant yet keep at it quite as long as I would like.

As usual, I have a list of items I WANT to make. How many will make it to a gift bag is a totally different list :-)

Usually I make socks for my husband and my son, which I am again doing this Christmas. In fact they may each get two pairs this year. Since we don't have family to celebrate with in our area, I've borrowed an idea from the Yarn Harlot for a bee-stitch wash cloth and turned it into this year's Christmas grab box gift. I've knit a set of three washcloths in different colors with matching ribbons to keep them together. Several sets go in a box to be sent out of town and the recipients can choose which color combinations they want. They can then swap colors if they choose. It's an experiment with this side of the family so we'll see how it goes!

I am almost done my holiday knitting. I started in June. I knit 37 hats for family members, all different. They get to choose their own hat. I have one scarf to do, and that is it.
:)

Hand knit socks rock.

I am finishing up a sweater for my husband, hope to have it done next week. I am also working on a lace and cable hat for my daughter.
My daughter's former room mate requested an ear warmer, and I complete that several weeks ago while watching the World Series.

I have big plans for Christmas and the yarn is purchased. It will be interesting to have another forum for find out how many knitters finished their gifts. As for me, time is passing. I don't think I'll make it!

Peace, Quietlynne

I crocheted the red "angry bird" hat for my great nephew for his birthday and everyone loved it. I've had a couple of requests for the pink (girl) angry bird hat from my nieces, so it looks like angry bird earflap hats are going to be my crocheted gifts this year!

(I'm also working in charity projects in between gift projects -- mittens for our LYS "warm hands" project and chemo caps for the guests at the Gift of Life Transplant House where I work and knitting to keep my Etsy store stocked thru Christmas. If only I didn't have to leave the house for work....sigh)
