Christmas Knitting Begins

It's the end of October and it's time to start thinking about knitting for Christmas gifts.  It seems like every year someone wants something knitted- a scarf, a hat, fingerless gloves, etc. I end up just knitting these items and figure out who gets what later on.

Right now I'm knitting a scarf. It's the Grapevine Lace Scarf pattern. I started it yesterday and knitted off and on. Super easy pattern to memorize and not boring due to the increases and decreases along the way. I have an idea who this will be for. Here is an in progress pic.

I wish I could remember what yarn I'm using. Since we moved into our house my yarn became a jumbled mess and I lost tags and labels and it got all mixed up.

I should be getting some more yarn this week for more projects. I just spent some money (I know my husband will be thrilled) for some new yarn from Eat.Sleep.Knit so I can get some more projects done. If I didn't have to work I would be able to get these things done so much quicker. Stupid bills!
