New WIPs for November!

The panic has started to set in....Christmas is less than two months away, and since we aren't traveling to Kansas City for the holidays, I have to make sure all of my gifts are done with plenty of time to ship them out. GULP! To free up my crafting time, I spent most of the weekend working like mad to finish the top-secret test knitting project I've been working on since September, and I'm just about ready to bind off the final section - most likely, that will happen tonight.

That means it's time to shift my gift-making into full gear, and unfortunately, a lot of those projects won't be shareable on this blog til after they are gifted. As a result, this is when I start to trot out the "decoy" projects to keep things interesting - these are projects for recipients who either don't read my blog, or won't realize it's for them if they do (I hope!).  Last night, I started the first such project - last month's FreshStitches Kit Club shipment, Gordon the Pink Flamingo:

Flamingo Feet!
I fell in love with the Snow Family & Evergreens pattern featured on the cover of the new WEBS catalog which arrived on Monday, and yesterday I bought the pattern (along with the super-adorable Hot Chocolate Polar Bear Run pattern - I have no self-control!). I'll probably be casting on for one or both of these projects over the weekend, if not sooner. There is a KAL for the Snow Family pattern which started yesterday here on the WEBS blog if you'd like to join in the fun!

You may like to know: believe it or not, I have no affiliation with WEBS, I just love shopping their online store and can't resist cute holiday toy patterns!
