The Leaves are Falling

The leaves are falling here in New England ... which means its really time to start thinking about holiday knitting!

1. Diane's Gloves - need thumb an ends woven in. 1/15/10
2. Derek's scarf - needs to be completed.
3. Leyburn socks - second leg needs finishing. 1/14/10
4. Toe up socks - second heel and leg needs to be completed. 1/25/10
5. Cable bottom up sweater - Just needs ends woven in and buttons put on
6. Reversible Cable Scarf
7. Bat Shawl
8. Christmas Stocking
9. Baby Blanket
10. Drawstring Bag

I am still working my way through my list of projects I wanted to finish up this year. I would like to start the new year without projects that have been hanging around for years.

I finished knitting the cable sweater, just have to weave in the ends and put the buttons on and that one will be done!

I would like the bat shawl to be done by Halloween so that I can use it ... probably won't be wearing that any other time of year :o)

And the Christmas list:

1. Joe gloves
2. Diane's stocking
3. Mom headband - found a great pattern, forget where!
4. Knitter's Guild Project - we are exchanging baktus scarves this year. I got the yarn this past weekend for mine.

Took the drop spindle class this weekend and did pretty well. Now I just need to practice to get consistent with the drafting so that the yarn is the same width throughout. Practiced for an hour last night :o)
