What's on your Christmas knitting list? ARGHH, it's December already and I've not started.

I was at a Knitting Guild meeting last night and Sandra (who knits for everyone at Christmas) gets a phone call from her sister-in-law:  "We really liked those hats you knit us last year, could you do us each some more this year and we really liked our socks and the kids would love leg warmers and . . ."    Sandra's comment was "The hats are doable, but where was all this information when I asked in August?! And how long does she think all this knitting is going to take? It's December already!!"

I guess it's time to get down to some sort of list.
2 Toques, one for my son and a second one for the daughter's new boyfriend, both in black, of course.
Socks, at least 2 pairs.
Cowl and matching mittens.
Finish mittens for myself since it's getting cold here.

Must get going on it.


  1. I think my Christmas knitting is finished -as of last night. Two Minion Hats, one Santa Hat, one Unoriginal Hat and one Easy Peasy scarf. Now back to knitting for me.

  2. I don't do Xmas knitting. Causes way too much stress. I know, I know, I should be ashamed of my lazy ways!

  3. the hats are started, and nothing else will be done for them! (except for some pajama pants... those are quick...)
    I feel like I have "sucker" tattooed on my forehead...

  4. I don't take orders for knitting any time past November because I spend the two months before Christmas knitting tuques for the homeless. Everyone else can whistle!!
