WIP Wednesday
Yes, I know it is June...but I have to fill up my Christmas Chest for gift giving. Plus I am thinking of re-opening the ETSY shop in the fall.  So I have started some knitted ornaments and I am reading over some ideas in The Christmas Craft Book.

This is a gift I am giving to my Son for Christmas...He is crazy over slippers this will be the third pair I have made him.  Can you see the little green bead marker?  My little girl made them...she is so talented.  I am going to put some on the ETSY shop for her.  She is so cute making them.  We went to the local KIP last week and she sat quietly making these and sold three pair.  Enterprising little minx.
This one is getting is my take with project. Its such an easy project and all my others are color working, so unless I am going to the local yarn shop to knit, I take this one.  Some people just don't understand that, yes, I need this much table space for my yarn (I have to switch them around so they don't get tangled) the chart and my little note pad so I can keep track.  My goodness don't they knit.

Don't Forget to stop by and Link Up With me on Sharing Saturday and off Anything that you have created, from knitting, sewing, homemaking, gardening, photography, wood work...anything that you have made with your loving hands.
Well, what is every up to?  what are you knitting? are you causing as much trouble as I am knitting in public?

Christmas knitting - I am so jealous! I think I might need to get started soon.

I'm working on holiday gifts, too. (If you'd like some company, a few of us are cheering each other on with early holiday crafting on Tuesdays.) The book looks like it will have some fun inspiration!

I should get started too, and I will after I finish my girls summer skirts. Being so new to knitting though, I may only be able to make very small things.

Sounds very organized. Good idea to add your daughter's stitch markers to the shop; may as well encourage that entrepreneurial spirit!
