Christmas Knitting

As the school term finally draws to an end this Friday, I decided to get underway with my plans for some knitted gifts for family and friends. As it is summer in Australia this time of year, I find it difficult to come up with knitted gifts because are they are generally for cold weather, although where I live, it doesn't hurt to have a couple of extra scarves.

So far, I am planning to knit 2 Elisa's nest totes and a Tilted Duster from Interweave Fall 07. Being the super organized person I am (not really), I have already bought the yarn:

Moda Vera bamboo cotton

Some more Moda Vera Bamboo/cotton for the string totes.

Tilted Duster from Interweave Knits Fall 07

My progress on the Tilted duster. The back has been completed. I am knitting with 12ply Rustic in a steely blue/grey called Delta from the Bendigo Woollen Mills.

What are your plans for knitted gifts this year?

What's the 12ply rustic like to knit with? I'm vaguely considering it for my next big project (which won't be started until well after Christmas).

And Christmas knitting? Well, pretty light - just finished (like, at 2am this morning) a pair of socks for my mum, and I have two skeins of The Knittery's 8ply Silk/Merino on it's way for a couple of quick scarfs. And that's it.

No one appreciates my knitted gifts but me, I'm afraid. *emo tearz* . I might knit a few people some fingerless gloves (always useful) but that's about it.
