i think it's a little of both.

i am going to focus on the bigger kids as well as the mamas and the papas (if I have any suitable yarn for a dad ) since there always seems to be a wealth of baby stuff, knitted or otherwise.

Plus as we head into the latter part of 2007, if we are lacking small(er) items we will still be able to crank out itty bitty stuff since it knits up so quickly.

good idea

I have some burp cloths with matching bibs that I am finishing up that I can donate, and after that I'll start some work on some older kids/mama/papa items.

I seem to have a ton of random baby hats around here too that I should dig up to donate. I mean really, how many hats do two girls really need? lol

I have a neck warmer pattern if anyone is interested.

Yeah, this is kind of how I've been feeling too. I haven't gotten nearly as much knitting done as I expected to, but I am slowly working on some things!

How about I throw some smaller patterns your way that are fun to knit and to recieve?

Simple, warm hat/neckwarmer
Hat that uses smaller amounts of yarn
Hat that uses scrap yarn
Beautiful booble hat
Quick and beautiful scarf
Easy child's hoodie
Beautiful fingerless gloves
Adorable baby hat - I've modified this pattern to fit toddler sizes, and to add ear coverer things that tie under the child's neck.

Inspired yet??

I am unfortunately going to have to make my February stuff be for March as we've had the plague here and I haven't been able to finish them yet.

I changed the title of this Thread. I think we probably don't need a separate thread for each month.

I haven't really started what I was planning to do yet either, so no worries. We are all just doing the best we can!

Do you think the mods could make this thread a sticky, since we're donating everything that we make?

It would also be easier to keep track of it that way.

Just an idea.

I'd love to see it!

Unfortunately, I didn't get much knitting done this month.
Too much overtime at work combined with constant sports practices/cub scout meetings.

I really want to get some things accomplished this month.

This is a great idea! I pm'd Arwyn, the mod for Yarn Crafts, with the request.

I'm trying to get back in the knitting groove... I'm not a fast knitter (though I hope to remedy that by learning continental soon) and I have four projects that I need to cast on and finish before I can start with HH stuff.

My point being, as soon as I catch up I'd like to knit a couple of things for the HH.

Just a reminder so we're all on the same page. MDC loves that its members do this for each other, but the Holiday Helpers thread is NOT an official, MDC-endorsed charity or event. It is run purely by volunteers, who set their own rules and guidelines, and is not sponsored nor run by Mothering.com, MDC, nor any of its representatives in any official capacity.

All that legal disclaimerage out of the way, you guys rock, and I'm happy to sticky this.

Arwyn --

Thank you for stickying us!!!!!

I have a link to this thread in my sig. After reading your post I'm a little confused as to if that is okay or not. Am I not allowed to do that?

The link in your signature is fine. Posting anywhere JUST to spam the link would not be ok - same rules apply to the main Holiday Helper thread.

alrighty I have a pair of wee nb longies and a hat thats about an 18mt-2T . I am sure my kids winter knits from this year will still be like new as we had no winter this year and can be put in the donation pile.

I am trying to get my yarns organized for easier choices in knitting, I am finding that I have a lot of girly yarns and no boy yarns. If anyone has boy or GN yarns to donate let me know

I finished up another hat this weekend! Wool, cream, and I would say for a 8-10 year old ( I also did one for a AIDS auction!!)
post #58 of 150
Does anyone have a link to the free wrap-style soaker that someone had posted earlier?
I thought it was on this thread, but I can't find it.

My new laptop had *issues* and everything had to be dumped and I'm starting from scratch again.
All my patterns and links are gone.
