|My niece's Jacket with Moss Stitch Bands.|
95% of the items I knit are gifts (I don't know why, I just seem incapable of knitting for myself!), so this meme will be great for me as I'll be able to plan everything in advance, instead of that awful last minute rush, let's knit til 4am, thing that seems to get me every time.
I'm not really selective when it comes to choosing who to knit for. My only rule is "if they appreciate it, they can have it". If they don't actually like knitting, I don't bother knitting for them, as I don't want to waste time & money on something they're never going to use, or even like. Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on how many people want knits), the majority of people I know appreciate the time and effort I've taken to make things.

The main people I'll be knitting for this year, are (in particular order):
- Sara (sister)
- Tazz (sister)
- Katy (sister)
- Abby (cousin/best friend)
- Tilly (niece)
- Daisy (niece)
I'll also be knitting for friends and a couple of other family members, but the 7 people mentioned above are the people I'll be mainly focusing on. Some gifts have deadlines, such as Tamin's congrulations package, but other than that, and a couple of anniversaries, I'll mostly be knitting things just because I want to gift bomb them.
So that is my twist on today's Holiday Stash Down 2012 prompt, which was created by the Underground Crafter. Head over to today's post to check out other posts along the same lines.
