Christmas crafting has begun!

It took me a while to get here, but I am finally immersed in Christmas knitting.  I found a really nice cotton to start knitting my niece a scarf.  I made her one a couple years ago, but as kids usually do, she has gotten quite a bit taller!  So I think a new scarf is in order.


Of course, once I started knitting this scarf, Emma immediately demanded a new scarf for Christmas as well.  I think that I will make her a cowl that she can wear around the house this winter.  She sees me knitting quite a bit, and gets little ideas while I am knitting for others what she wants for herself.  It is cute.


As far as anything else on the needles, well there isn't anything.  I am still trying to get into a groove with knitting for Christmas, and although I like to have several projects going at the same time, at this stage in the game I really need to concentrate on finishing one project before starting a new one.  Then at least I will have one present done instead of several half finished projects!


As far as books go, I have nothing new at the moment.  Too many things going on to look for a new book for myself right now.  We are fully into holiday books at this point.  And that is keeping me busy enough for the kids and for me!  I don't expect to be reading anything besides recipes until Christmas is over.  At which point I hope to have some gift cards to Barnes and Noble that I can use!

Linking up at the yarn along today!
