O.K… Please don’t hurt me… :devil:
Has anyone started working on Christmas projects??? If so, what are they??? I found a really kewl “winter” wreath in the latest Creative Knitting magazine that I think I might start.
O.K… Please don’t hurt me… :devil:
No one will hurt you. Most of us are working on, or have ordered yarn for, Christmas presents already.
KK is making ELEVENTYPLEX KAJILLION pair of clogs for Xmas and has bought out knitpicks! :shock:
I’m about half done with DD’s sweater, 25% done with niece’s pair of socks, and have yarn for other DD’s and other niece’s sweater, and patterns picked out for DS - sweater and hat.
I really want to make the clogs for someone, but don’t have anyone to make them for (except me). :??
Happy Christmas Knitting :XY:
I have gifts made or in the making/planning stage, because last year I started too late and ended up spending lots of money for gifts at the last minute on top of the stress of not finishing what I planned.
As for Christmasy stuff, I might do something small for Secret Santa type stuff at work later on.
I have the yarn for 2 blankets. not sure if I’ll ever get around to them.
I want to make clogs for most of my list - but how do you get them to fit people?
I have scarfs made or being made… along with a shawl although one of the scarfs is now going to be a birthday present cause I thought I had more time for the birthday till last night… so have to redo that one… :rollseyes:
I have birthdays in October that i’m focusing on first, then i’ll work on Xmas…
I’m going to do a few clogs (of course!) and i’m thinking about doing a sweater for my sister… Perhaps Knitty’s “Tempting” - not sure about that one… But as soon as i knock down these b-day pressies (DNA scarf and a pair of clogs) i’ll be knitting like crazy for the holidays…
Looks like Clogs are THE thing to make… Are they basically like making a “felted sock” (without the heel of course??))
What’s a good pattern to try??? ((Mom is always looking for comfy foot wear))
This is the famous clog thread
Well, 15, anyway… :shifty:
Mary! How SAD that none of your family or friends has FEET! Were they involved in some kind of mass foot-slicing incident??
Im giving all of mine UNfelted, then they can come over (or Ill do it there) & Ill felt to fit!! I cant wait to see the hilarity ensue when people open these KNITTED TRUCKS of unfelted slippers!! :roflhard:
Somebody has to capture that on video! "Poor Kelly, she SAYS she can knit. . . . "
This is how I figured i would do it. I would be too afraid to felt them too much if I tried to guess. Plus it will be real fun to see the looks on their faces when they unpack King Kong sized clogs.
I am just started my christmas knitting. I am doing a poncho (yeah, I know but she asked for it!) for my SIL. And a wrap for my grandmother. I am planning on doing hats, mittens and scarves for the kids. Finially FT clogs for my brother, Dad and FIL. I am in the middle of deciding on gifts for everyone else. I figured this list will keep me busy for a while.
I have been knitting my christmas presents since early July. I have whipped out 7 hats, 11 dish cloths and towel topper sets. I am currently working on a hooded sweater for my brother I have the front done, now I have to cast on for the back.
I’m making scarves for my girlfriends…I figure they’re quicker (especially since I’m such a S-L-O-W knitter), and I can change up the patterns so I don’t get bored.
For my friends’ babes, I’ll be making funky hats. I have a few patterns that I’m looking foward to trying.
I’ve almost finished with the first of 5 scarves.
They’ve all GOT feet! They just don’t want clogs to put on all those cold tootsies :crying: :?? :shock:
I thought my girls would these - I showed them pics of yours and Silvers - but they both said they’d rather have sweaters :rollseyes: (and I didn’t even show them Ingrid’s and Silver’s sweaters).
They just want to turn Mom into their personal knitting machine!
Clogs would be SO much faster - and I wanted to FELT something! :happydance:
make them purses!!
Well… my wife is making stuff for a combination of craft show and Christmas. (She does crochet.)
As for me, I’m having enough trouble getting through this necklace thing for my kids, which was supposed to be done a week or two ago. But yes, I’ve started thinking about Christmas too… just hoping I’ll have enough time (and be good enough) to actually finish a project or two by then.
good idea. thanks KK!
So far, I am working on purses and dishcloths for Christmas. I need to order yarn for my sister’s throw. It will be here before we know…

Great idea Brenda - I found a free pattern for the Buttonhole Bag that I really like and think they will too. And it’s FELTED. :happydance: :happydance:
It will be LOTS faster than sweaters, - won’t work for DS though. I guess he gets the sweater.
Happy Christmas Knitting all you Santas out there. :XX: :XX:
(need a knitting emoticon in a Santa hat and beard)
