I will be knitting like the wind everyone is getting knitwear this year. But the big deal will be a design competition spread over Dec and Jan I know I will need to design and knit three things though I don't have a cue what they will be!! Excited

My OWL! I'm making lots of washcloths for presents for the all the little kiddos this Christmas. I'd love to do a fair isle stocking, but I think time is against me.

I'm mid-way through a couple of scaves, and then I start on the pile of hats. And I'm making radish earrings for a friend! (I'm pretty sure they're going to be my most successful knitted gift this year.)

Katrin said...

I have some scarves on my christmas knitting list as well as another hat for myself plus mittens for winter.

Vanessa said...

I have a whole bunch of mittens to knit! I still haven't found the right "guy gift" that isn't a hat... but I will knit on!

Christmas knitting for me will be socks, cowls and finally finishing the colorwork vest for my son and a letterman's sweater for my daughter!

Robyn Nanae said...

Little things for me mostly. I'm going to be making some toys for the three children of a friend who recently left her husband with little more than a few clothes. Other than that probably hats and maybe a couple of shawls.

Michelle said...

Stuff for the kiddos! I've still got a few hats in the works, a Charlie Brown sweater for my Charlie, and probably some stocking stuffers/toys.

I'm on my third of three Noro scarves for my brother and brothers-in-law. That may be it for holiday knitting for me this year.

joseybug said...

Haven't totally narrowed it down... Finish a shawl, make a shawl for MIL, poss sox for sis, scarf for dad's new secretary... who knows what else

Crystal said...

I don't have much in the way of holiday knitting yet, but my nieces new husband is stationed in Iraq. So I plan to knit hats and hand warmers for her and her husband. Pink for her, and a dark tan for him. :)

For holiday gifts, I still have to knit one pair of socks for my cousin, crochet an amigurumi octupus for a friend and see what else strikes me.
Oh, and I need a hat. For me. Only.

I have snowflakes to make. LOTS of snowflakes. We usually give them to the kids teachers, include them in Christmas cards, attach to packages, etc. Just a little personal touch added to purchased gifts! :)

MindySue said...

I have a few hats to make and a couple of sweaters.

spartyliblover said...

I need to make 2 pairs of Bella mittens (one for me, one as a holiday gift), and I'm working on a couple wine sweaters as holiday gifts and a pair of fingerless mitts or two as well. Can't wait to get started on them!

Holiday crocheting this year consists of making my various gifts to my sisters and parents (table runners, pillows, animals, etc.), a tree skirt, some ornaments, and some small pieces to be auctioned off at a church Art Gala to raise money.

Raewyn said...

Christmas is in summer for me, but this year I'll have family visiting from Europe so they may well be getting hats, scarves and mittens.

Joannie said...

With the new baby, I'll be lucky to finish knitting my OWL and hopefully a pair of socks for my deserving husband. I miss the free time I used to have. - JMN of Hufflepuff

My biggest project for the Holiday season this year is my OWL. I am making a sweater to wear for the holidays to my (many) Christmas gatherings.

My next holiday project is bath puff's and washcloths for friends and family.

..that would be Alethea who can't read directions today.

Holiday plans are a set of mittens for my Dad, a hat for Mom (got the yarn and button at Rhinebeck!), and...something for DH. Possibly the Cthulu hat he's been harassing me about.

I'm working away on some color work gloves for my sister and then I have plans to knit my first ever lace shawl as a Christmas gift. And of course finishing up my OWL!

I have some mittens and slippers to work on for close family, but for my extended family I'm making teddy bears in their honor to donate to charity.
