My older daughter is taking a ballet class, and I worry about her getting cold on the drive, so I want to make her a set (and my younger daughter will surely want a set, too, so she can also be a "bahweena!") of these:
Leg warmers (I'll probably add some poofy edging on the top)
Ballerina shrug (with no finishing!)
For my son, I've almost finished a red version of this Hallows Cardigan (based on a sweater Ron wears in one of the Harry Potter movies):
(My husband reads the blog, so, sweetheart, YOU GET NOTHING.)
And then for some other family members (who are NOT my sisters, though I love you all), I love finding useful little things that you'd never think of, but use constantly.
This is hard. But sometime last fall, I came across this:
It's an organizer that hangs on the back of a car seat. And yes, it's sewn, not knit. I could definitely use one of these, and I think most families could, too.
Of course, I can't forget me! I should ask for some yarn to indulge, right? Probably some time around Valentine's day, I might be ready to start a BIG project for myself:
This gorgeous Snowdrift Cardigan, either in winter white or "greige."
What are you making for Christmas gifts?
