Already planning for next year

Even though Christmas just happened I am already planning for next year. I have big plans for next Christmas and it is going to take me a year to get it all done.

I know for sure I am expanding what I knit and more people will be getting knitted items from me. This year my mom made all us kids a beautiful blanket, they were a huge hit and I am thinking of making a couple for gifts next year. I know they took her a long time so I better get to work on them now. Plus I have a lot of other projects in mind, including longies and hudson hats.

What I do not make I am going to try to find on clearance. If I shop all year it should make it so much easier to finish closer to Christmas. Even though I do not like the thought of getting up early, I do plan on black Friday shopping next year, Chris did this year and it saved us a lot of money!

Then they'll have their bigger gift from Santa of course.
