Call me crazy, but I am already thinking about my after Christmas Day crafting... I know, I know. I am also stressing the Christmas Day part since a friend informed me that my Christmas cards will not be late as Christmas is not just one day, it lasts for 12 days, and I need to own my Catholic-ness, pick up my cards today and send them out... proud and unashamed!
I have a confession to make. My Ravelry queue is 144 patterns long. Please, tell me that I am not the only one? Tell me mine is actually a modest length and you scoff at my measly 144. There are a ton of things out there I add that I would love to make. I may never make it, but I would love to! And then there are some I am dying to make!
January holds a 1st birthday for us, so there are plans for a milo (here is the link to one I made) and another hat (because all babies looooove hats) as well as a birthday crown for Tiger.

As soon as I finish Rogue's Campfire sweater I am planning on making two Boheme sweaters for the girls. Lily might help me with one of them. And I need to make poor Buttercup another sweater as her Tiny Tea Leaves was put through the washing machine. She was very sad and came out asking if I would make her another as I was frantically whittling on some Christmas hats and looking off to the side to see Rogue's Campfire waiting to be done. I promised soon... soon... Maybe I ought to make one before the Boheme.
Anyway, I thought I would share with you a few patterns I am really wanting to make. Not just queue love, but things I truly am planning on making.

For Sweet Pea: i heart rainbows. I wish they made this pattern big enough for Buttercup too. This would be so sweet matching between a big sister and a little sister! I will, of course, have to make the hat, too. This pattern is by Tin Can Knits, which I have to admit is probably my favorite set of designers ever. There patterns are worth every penny. I have loved every pattern I have made by them and I have made quite a few. I admit, I am a fan girl... big time.

For Bear: Another Campfire! I think I might make another for Tiger too. Wouldn't that be cute??

For Rogue: Another Antler hat. He would love a matching one to a certain someone.

So that is a little look at my future plans. Yeah, I must be crazy. I won't even show you the stuff I have planned for birthdays. My local yarn shop loves me. Last time I went in they knew me by name. Which is good... right?
