time to start thinking about making gifts

 I am always amazed how fast the year goes. It seems like it was just summer a few weeks ago and now we are starting to feel a little of the cold of winter. And since Santa is showing up early every place (he "arrived" at a nearby mall last Friday in my area), I thought, it's time to start making gifts. For those of you who have been steadily working on your gifts since December 26, 2009, I say hooray for you. However, I haven't been and I suspect a few other people may not have been. So for those of you who procrastinate, here's a little help

This is a pattern pink ribbon shawl, but you could make it any color to honor whoever you wanted to honor:

I thought this was really cute, a cat and mouse afghan

It's Thanksgiving next week, which seems to be a minor bump on the way to Christmas. But I love Thanksgiving and if I get a few minutes to think, I want to make this turkey

Here's a nice crochet v-neck sweater

I like this scarf from Berroco. I even like the yarn. But if you're like me, you will probably search your stash before buying more yarn

Once again, Caron's 12 days of Christmas - both knit and crochet

Do you or somebody you know like "Star Wars" - here's a Yoda pattern for you. You could even make it a Christmas ornament....

It's starting to get cold in my neck of the woods, so that means it's time to think about bundling up. This would make a great gift set for somebody or even you...
hat, mittens and scarf

That's all I got for now, I hope you _enjoy_
