I have officially started my Xmas knitting for this year. So far I have the makings of a B4(ish) bag to go in the box, and am going to start a few little felted mobius baskets to put little goodies in. This is all using up remnants of stash and being felted it uses it up double fast too :lol:
I am trying to keep away from the usual scarves and hats, but will definitely try some proper gloves this year I think.

I can totally recommend the Forest Canopy cowl to everyone. It took 2/3 evenings to do and was incredibly easy, I used a skein of sport weight sock yarn and I had loads left over so it's a definite 1 skein project.

OOOOOO I had forgotten about the Bravo bag. 8-) I've nearly finished my B4-ish bag (just needs lining and stiff bottom :o ) but this is going to be my next steal I think. I am just running through Ravelry looking at the finished items to get an idea of the construction and then will get on with this at the weekend I think ;)
