Can’t blog now must finish knitting nieces’ Christmas presents….

How are you guys coming along? (Or is it fair to ask.)

Edited to add… DONE!

My five siblings and I do a round-robin on Christmas gift giving and this year it’s our turn for my brother with four daughters. Here, let me just block this one and then run in a few ends and they should all be in the mail come Monday.

Well done. I try to avoid gift knitting for more than one or two people, and this year I have scratched even those gifts off my list as I try to get some other long-lingering projects off the needles. But giving a well-knit item to an appreciative recipient is something that gives back in good memories so thoroughly…I really should reconsider my position on this!

I’ve finished the knitted gifts I had planned on making but there’s time to think about whether I should knit for someone else. I’m not feeling the inspiration yet so maybe I’m done.

In the mail come Monday. Very impressive.

I haven’t knit any Christmas gifts and may not. I’m still working on the graduation gift blanket for my grand-daughter, taking my time over it.

sounds like you are making good progress

I’m knitting a pair of mittens for my son in law — he has been impressed with the ones I’ve made for Mr Cute, so I’m making a pair for him

my Christmas creating is having a hard time making progress because of all the house prep, but I should be able to finally get to that in a serious way soon – hurrah!

Well, I have one more Chanukah gift in progress and then the toy to go with a book (*The Gruffalo* — Phoeny’s pattern for the toy, but just the title character, not the others). I’ve been shopping a bit and will be working through the gift stash (non-knitted gifts, that is) and resorting to Amazon a little, not to mention a few magazine subscriptions, but maybe I’ll make it. Glad Chanukah isn’t early this year. What I finished and blocked yesterday? Oh, right, that was for me. But it was a November and early December KAL, so that’s ok, right?
