Wow, one month down...only 326 knitting day left until Christmas!  What did everyone complete this past month?  I finished-
3 hats (2 to be future xmas presents, one for a swap)
Here is the swap recipient, irid3sc3nt, wearing her hat.

A branching out scarf, late 2005 xmas gift
A red white and blue fluffy garter stitch scarf, future present for my boyfriend's mom.
Plus I've started working on the Yorick scarf (more than half done, and I've just decided what to do with it!) and another hat for a swap.  I guess I didn't get as much done as I had wanted, but this month has been extremely busy.

But now its February, which means hat time.  I love making hats the best.  My hopefuls to complete this February include a Tychus hat from Knitty, which I'll have to keep on the DL cuz I want to give it to my boyfriend.  I also need to finish up a Cabled Newsboy cap (my first cables, yay!)...I've finished the body but I still need to knit the bill.  I also have 2 hats and a panta(hey its head gear, it counts!) that I need to make for swap.  Busy busy busy...

I haven't really done anything for christamas yet. I was knitting soley for christmas since september last year, so I have been doing some projects for myself lately. When march rolls around i am going to make my dad's present. I am making him a hat/mitten/scarf set in his college alma mater's colors, because he has been hinting he wanted a scarf in those colors since i learned how to knit. Then i figure I will make like one person's present a month, depending on how time-consuming they are.

Wow I'm so impressed by how organized everyone is! I have no idea what I'm getting most people on my "list". Heck, I don't even have a list yet! Hmm one thing I do know though is that I want to make my little cousin something because he gave me an awesome present and I just signed my family's card for his last year! Only problem is, he is an 18 year old college freshman, very mainstream. Not sure what cool thing I could make him that he'd actually wear =/ Any ideas???

I have five people I know for sure I am going to knit something for... besides that, I have no clue. I have been collecting yarn I like when it's on sale or I have a coupon or something, and I am going to just knit stuff that I like. Then, come Christmas I should have a fair about of stuff to choose from for those other people that inevitably I feel compelled to give something to.


As far as your cousin, does he wear scarves? Like, I have found that those a pretty safe  bet, and the possibilities are endless. But I dated a guy once who refuses to wear scarves because it "makes him look like a hipster fa660t". Needless to say, we are no longer dating. Jerk.

But I digress...

I am making the Mens cashmere scarf in the Last Minute Knitted Gifts book (althought not from cashmere), and I really love it. The color they suggest is masculine, and the stitch is really awesome, whether you are a man, a woman, a donkey, whatever.

What about an illustion scarf? Maybe a skul, or a alien? Or make you own? On one of the eariler pages I posted a link to a create your own illustion pattern thingy, maybe check that out.


Good luck, let us know what you end up with!

Thanks for the ideas! I was thinking an illusion scarf with soccer balls since he loves soccer, but I was a little confused about the how to make your own pattern directions, so I might just do a skully thing first and then try to make my own pattern. or just fudge around until I come up with something soccer ball esque
