I know some of you out there are knitting gifts for others during the holidays, and I don't know about you, but I think I filled my plate a bit too full. I just thought it would be nice to have people post pics and give them even more of an incentive to finish!

Last night I finally decided on what to give my co-workers... I kept on wanting to make things that were too big and time consuming.  Now I am going to make them mini mitten ornaments for their Christmas trees Smiley
I made one so far.  The flash kinda washed it out a bit.  The pattern is from http://img.yarn.com/pdf/MiniMittenPattern.pdf

It's difficult to knit with trotters - but I cope!

No you can rub it in my face all you want Wink This is my first year knitting gifts for more than one person so I really underestimated how long it would take! Last night I knit a large chunk of the luggy bonnet. I just have to complete the top shaping, assemble, and sew in lots of fun ends!

Since I'm doing some christmas knitting, too, I thought I'd add what I have done and what I need to do still. I'll include some links to the projects that I have done, too.

DONE:
-hats for 2 friends, sister, 2 future sister in laws, and nephew.
(http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2220/2073915625_81c447be7e.jpg?v=0, http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2126/2073912047_55a07e6ad9.jpg?v=0) There are some others that I haven't taken pictures of yet. They are all Ela's Favorite Hat from 101 One Skein Wonders. Some of them I just changed a little.
-Mittens for everyone! (5 total, so far) (http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2066/2074706764_ae0589ac29.jpg?v=0) These mittens are all the Gauntlet mittens from Speed Knitting.
-Scarves for my 2 future sister in laws and a friend. The blue and cream scarves are k2p2 rib and the fuzzy one is just garter.
(http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2052/2073911157_a42030ed74.jpg?v=0, http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2163/2073904903_fe5e9e1a3f.jpg?v=0, http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2357/2073905793_366b5c35f6.jpg?v=0)

TO DO:
-Hat and mittens for my mom
-finish my mom's socks
-mittens for my dad? Hat? I don't know yet!

And I have one more to do that isn't a Christmas present. One of my classmates asked me to make him a hat with earflaps, so I'll be doing that over Christmas break!

It feels good to know I'm mostly done! Good luck to everyone else on getting things finished!

I received a link to these really cute Mini Sweater Ornaments in my Berrocco newsletter this morning!
I may try a few of these instead of some of the mini mittens.
