Daughter: 4 boy poppets: almost done!!  Now have to make them some clothes and get more eyes!

Well I've started on scarf #2.  I love the first one so much that I've ordered yarn for two more, so that'll be three friends and my mum who all get one.

In case anyone is interested, the yarn I'm using is Bergere de France's Angel and is very reasonably priced and I definitely recommend it  Grin

If you knit, hats, socks, and slippers always go over really well with my dad.  Easy fleece blankets do too, and all you have to do is finish the edges.  My dad is getting slippers and an apron this year, because he's been baking bread pretty often lately.  Does your dad cook at all?  What is he into?

I'm taking 18 hours this semester plus we live right where Hurricane Ike hit so my life has been crazy since September.  I'm in the middle of my last week before finals so all the craziness will be ending soon.  I'll have two weeks to get all of this done, but I think I can do it!  I've been wanting to craft so badly for about two months now but won't let myself because I know my schoolwork will get neglected.  I'm ready to get this stuff going!

Mom: knifty knitted scarf
Dad: photo album of his side of the family going back to my grandma as a little kid
brother (16): NO IDEA!!! He'll probably just get non-crafted things.
my grandma: scrapbook of family Christmas pictures since 1950  and a photo video of our trip to Alaska
friend: pillow as she requested (I made her one five years ago in high school and she said a new one is needed)Boys I babysit (ages 4, 7, 11, 15): knifty knitted hats--all made of the same yarn, but with different designs (they all requested hats)
Parents of the above four kiddos:a photo video of the kids throughout this past year
18 month old cousin: a sock monkey made of cute stripey socks
cousin and his wife: family album with my grandma's recipes and family pictures intermingled
Uncle:same as above
five ladies I work with:banana nut bread in decorative trays ($1 each @ Michaels), felt ornament, and beaded candy cane
11 year old cousin:bright orange knitted hat (orange is her school color and she loves to hunt)
handchime students (about 30 kids): glass ball ornaments with swirly paint or snow inside
Sunday school students (about 12 kids ages 4-7):felt ornaments and beaded candy canes
