The October issue of Let's Knit will feature a toy knit/crochet book so if you're knitting for children this year, don't forget to have a look at that :-)

Ah looking forward to the book in October :-)

I don't think I will have time this year to knit Christmas pressies as I will have my hands full getting stuff knit/crocheted for the baby :cheese:

ive started my crimbo knitting today :)

 

this first pattern im knitting is a toiletries bag from ravelry, this one im knitting tho is only going to be a sample to get me used to the pattern as the base isnt looking very strong so going to do the proper gifts ones with double strands for base and single strands for the lace sides, will post a piccie up when its resembling a bag shape more, its on dpn & my first time using them (the free ones from lk) was quite fiddly to start off with but OK now ive got thru a few rows.

 

ive made a list of whose having what handmade and so far...

mum: hodded scarf, toiletries bag with smellies(handmade from local shop) in and a knitted shower puff too, maybe a jewellery set too

sister: slouchy beret, toiletries bag same as my mum, a handbag charm

ds2: tank top from a past issue of lk & a knit bus & blanket set (also from a free book from an lk offer)

ds1: hat & scarf set most likely try & do a ben 10/transformers/power rangers style

 

thats it so far, dont want too big a list to try & finish otherwise i will panic!!

xx
