believe me, i KNOW i'm crazy.

Ouch! Coffee coming through your nose HURTS! Thanks for making me smile (but only because my list is only *slightly* shorter and less ambitious than yours.
Wow- you are ambitious! I am only knitting 4 gifts this year and I haven't finished any of them yet.
Good luck with *THE* List! Don't forget to rest your hands every now & then!
Yes, my dear, you are crazy. I think it may be time to create a knitting hotline for crazy Christmas knitters. In fact I could use that myself...

I'm with you -- I have a list that I'm almost embarrassed to post because if I could, I'd knit something for everyone I know! It's insane, but I prefer to think of it as just very generous. :) Don't you think? I think it's just such a nice gesture to make something for someone, and when we love to knit, everyone benefits. Good luck! Jenifer
Hi. what is the pattern for the irish hiking scarf - tahki donegal tweed, brown?

I am so happy I found your site. It appears we have more in common than knitting! I'll let you know when I complete the "world renound" triple lindee patern!
