I just made my mom this bag.  http://www.flickr.com/photos/33431230@N00/134214145/

It's for her birthday but I thought it would be a good idea for someone else to use for mother's day.  I think it's a cute purse, knitting bag, or even a decorative basket type thing.   It's the buttonhole bag pattern from www.masondixonknitting.com .  It was a really quick knit, too.

I am still trying to figure out what to make my mom and SO's mom for Mother's Day.  I was thinking maybe the lap blanket from weekend knitting but I love it so much I'd be tempted to keep it for myself.  Hmmm. My mom loves socks, maybe an easy sock pattern (it'd be my first pair of socks).  Looking forward to hearing what others are making!

There will be lavender filled sachets for all of the mothers in my life.  There are so many, (both sisters, my aunt, and my godmother) so there is a small project that is very pretty and useful.

Gah!  I'd completely forgotten about the in-law! (runs around frantically searching for patterns)

I'm making my mom the Branching Out lace scarf from Knitting. As my first attempt at knitting lace it's going s-l-o-o-o-w, so in fact I just emailed her two weeks ahead of time to tell her that her gift might be late. Sad

Yeah! Cheesy
I've finished my moms purse.  I did the lopi tote with a skull & crossbones...my first/second felted wool creation.  (my first was the test purse to make sure i could make it quality for my mom).  It turned out pretty good...hopefully i'll get to post a pic, just have to figure out how to lower my pic quality so it will fit. 
Now i'm working on the super easy maryjane slippers...they are so cute i made a pair for the boyfriends mom and i loved them so much i just wanted to continue knitting them. 
Well I hope everyone elses projects are coming along...good luck
7 days and counting...knit faster!!! Shocked

I'm still knitting my mom's shawl.... i don't think it will be done in time!!!  Shocked But I could always make it a belated mother's day/early birthday gift since her birthday is in july... Plus she lives a couple hours away so I'm not even sure if I'll be seeing her on mother's day!

My mom's b-day is at the end of the month, so I'm making her a Mother's day/B-day present.

Knit-Dork, I was also thinking of making Kitchen-sink from Knitty.  It looks pretty difficult; it might take me a long time to complete. I told her I was going to make her a beach tote, and itsybitsty and kitchensink are the only patterns I have found that I liked.  I might just do the smaller one, since it is labeled as being less difficult.

Hahaha, so I've been having so many problems trying to knit Birch for my mom. . .

First, the first place I ordered from had the yarn, but the pattern was backordered.  So I got the pattern elsewhere and then it finally came to my house and I tried to start knitting it. . . on my denise interchangables.  ( I know now, not too bright was I?) The KSH got all caught up in every join with those so I ripped back the monstrosity (I'd only gotten about two very messed up rows far anyway,) and tried again on plain aluminum straights that were hand-me-downs.  But those were so long an heavy that it was too awkward to knit with them.  (I've been knitting socks on comparatively weightless needles, and I couldn't make myself adjust to the size and weight of these needles, and pay attention to the lace pattern at the same time.)

So I ended up buying a set of Addi Naturas. . . which right now, are still in the mail on their way to me.  I'm going to call my mom today and tell her that her gift (that she didn't even know she was getting) is going to be late.  The good news is, I finished the body of Sonnet for my boyfriend's mom, and just have to do the sleeves!

I just finished up felted oven mitts for the mom and mom-in-law.  They are pretty quick and functional - I had to try them out to see if they really worked!
