Inventory of projects

September is WIP Wrestle, so I’ll be tackling all my works in progress. Admittedly, I have done a fairly good job since the last time I wrestled with them so my sticks are fairly empty. I have more “want to starts” than I have actually in process.

Currently on my sticks:

  • Amigurimi animals for Boo-crochet
  • Plushie-intarsia knit
  • Jellybean socks-two at a time toe up

Once I finish those, I’ll tackle my holiday crafting. In theory I have plenty of time between now and my tentative completion date to complete the following:

  • For Boo
      Boo’s animals
  • Top secret gift knittingx2
  • Boo’s Secret Elf gift
  • My Secret Elf gift
      Sewing project
      Spinning/Knitting project
  • For me
    1. homespun sweater
      2 pairs of socks

If my hands still work after that list, I also would like to complete:

  • Purse
  • tennis ball frog
  • Spinning, lots and lots of spinning


Crafts, Kids & Christmas

Last Wednesday, Jason’s Mom invited me to help out at a local school craft show. The little ones are able to purchase handmade gifts for Christmas while at school. The children take home an envelope earlier in the month so that parents/guardians can help the child determine how much to bring, how many gifts to buy for whom. It was a lot of fun. I have been trying to come up with ideas for older brothers, fathers and grandfathers as well as gifts for little ones under the age of 3.


  • beaded keychains that have dad or granddad on them
  • scarf with dad/granddad

Young sibling

  • maybe adorable knitting socks
  • hats
  • stuffies-animals/dolls for the little ones
  • sock puppets/animals
