{Christmas Knitting?}

I got a call from family back home that my camera is on it's way , so that's good.  I'll be able to have pictures for you of my FO's from the last month and maybe get this blog up and going soon. :)

I'm also thinking ahead to Christmas Knitting.  I'm definitely cutting back this year because I think there are certain family members who just aren't *thrilled* with hand knitting. And I want them to be overjoyed and EXCITED to get my hand knit gifts.  It's not like they save me a bunch of money or time or anything. *scoff* 

IF you aren't a family member, check out my Christmas 2011 tab at the top for my first planning thoughts and then let me know what you think!


  1. I have completely stopped knitted gifts because 99% of the people I know don't truly value them. They think it's a copout so that I can spend less money, but it never crosses their mind how many hours I spend on their gifts!

    I adore the hat you have on your Xmas tab. I would totally keep that. :P

  2. This is you cutting down :-o That's like 2 years worth of projects to me! Wish you were in my family, I'd definitely appreciate it :-)

  3. I love your Christmas ideas - wished I was a family member after reading it.

    I know what you mean though about cutting back. Basically, if you aren't in my house or gave birth to me then your present is going to come from the store. It doesn't mean I love you less - they just appreciate it more... lol. If I'm going to put forth that much effort and love in each stitch, I would hope the recipient would be over the moon to receive it... and those few on my list definitely will be and then some.

  4. Whoa, you're really on top of your game!
