Time to Start Fall and Winter Projects

Summer is winding down and in some ways I'm glad. I love spring and summer, but with gardening and horse shows, having the grandkids out, etc., I pretty much have to put my craft projects on hold. There just doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day to get everything done!
Well, I'm starting to think about what projects I want to work on first. I guess I do have a few that I need to finish up! The holidays are just around the corner and I've got to get the knitted Christmas stockings done. I'm wanting to finish up some more of the fingerless gloves, too. I think they'll make nice little winter gifts. I'm always on the look out for some soft, fine yarns to do those with.
My neice got married this summer and I'd like to make her a great afghan. Something fluffy and loose made on great big knitting needles . I've picked out a couple of possible patterns at Knitting Pattern Central.
My youngest grandson has outgrown his baby afghan and I probably ought to be thinking of something more suitable for a little boy.
That pretty much fills up my knitting time, but I'll need to get some more quilted ball ornaments done before the holiday season gets here. I'm on the lookout for some great holiday quilt fabrics to make those out of. This angel cat was a popular ornament.
Looks like I won't have much time to be bored through the winter months. That's ok - I love to create pretty things and keep my hands busy during those long evenings of TV watching with my husband.
