Christmas crafting!

This year, I got the wild idea of making several gifts for Christmas. Of course, I didn't decide this until it was almost Thanksgiving. lol Yeah, gave myself plenty of time. I am making some progress though!
First up:
Christmas knit #1 - done!  
A slouchy, cabled hat for the friend who's letting me park in her backyard right now. =)

I'm not big on wearing hats, but after trying this one on, I might just have to make myself one... after Christmas, of course!

Christmas knit #2 - done!  
A cabled hat for my 7yo nephew. This one was my first shot at cabling without a cable needle - definitely quicker!

I'm still planning something for my niece and three other nephews and possibly a few more items, time permitting. =)

The past few days have involved a LOT of family time between Thanksgiving, shopping and decorating. We hit a few stores Friday (no, I didn't get up at 4a!) and I spent time yesterday helping my friend decorate. Let's just say, that experience reminded my why I got rid of all but a single bin of Christmas decor...

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! =)
