Christmas started in May for me. I'm also working on knitted gifts for everyone this year as part of my stash reduction efforts. So far it's mostly scarves and a felted jacket for my nephew. I still need some inspiration too.

Thanks for the sweet words!
You are a smart, smart woman. Last year I swore up and down that I would give only store-bought gifts this year. Then MIL (who is a knitter, and appreciates such things) hinted about socks. And now I have this bee in my bonnet about knitting socks for holiday gifts. And like, you know, it would be great if I had a lot of amputee relatives, because my second sock syndrome situation is really quite desperate. Also Yeti relatives, since I have two (single) enormous socks perfectly sized for yeti feet. But the idea of cranking out a bazillion socks by December...even I don't buy it, and it's my b.s.! Anyway, I admire your organization and foresight. Now stop it, will ya? :)
