That's 78 days till Hanukkah and 102 days til Christmas.

How's your holiday knitting coming??

I'm on the ball!


The sockhead hat ball that is!

I was going to keep this one for myself, but I think I'm going to gift it.


When I get excited, the hat rises!

Never fear procrastinators!!!

I've got something that will make your hat rise!

It's the Knitcircus Special Gifts Issue!

Check out those glovelets! I'm a total sucker for a picot edge. My inner girlie-girl coming out I guess.

Remember to check it out on Wednesday, September 15! Don't be a scrooge! Even if you think knitting gifts for unappreciative unibrowed uncles that may or may not be related to you because that limb of your family tree is a little "shady," it's OK!

No one ever said the things you're going to find in the Special Gifts Issue you have to give as gifts!

Finally, before I go, I'll share my personal favorite part of the gift issue--the gratuitous cookie p o rn!

Because what's a holiday without COOKIES?!

Love the high rise sockhead - awesome.

Christmas doesn't get mentioned here till the end of November!

But mentioning anything cookie related is OK.

I am a scrooge. I don't buy magazines anymore either in print or online.

I have one more gift to knit, and I am pretty much done w/ Christmas knitting. I will make some cookies to give out, but that is it!

I don't even want to know how many days there are until Christmas - somehow I think this is going to be a very lazy Christmas on my part. Christmas means I only have 6 weeks to go in my pregnancy...

I can't figure out WHAT I want to make for people for Christmas. Guess I'd best start figuring it out!
