Future Project Possibilities

I feel the need to document the ideas in my head before they all disappear. some of these projects have been in my head for a long time now...i need to start making plans to do some of them, especially now when i'm planning ahead for christmas. so in no particular order:

some kind of fair-isle accessories: hats or mittens --maybe mittens from winter ik 04?
double knitted mittens using self-striping yarn and solid yarn for the lining (reversible)
a clapotis
nautical stripey hourglass sweater in navy and white with shoulder button placket
knitted tunic possibly dip-dyed
something from scarf style
gotta think of more small man-appropriate gifts
another tivoli in cotton
another cozy (maybe patons classic merino? or use hand-dyed silk from stash)
felted canteen bag from fall ik
cable and rib socks from fall ik
if time allows: make christmas stockings for me and the roomie
oh yeah, and a wrap cardigan. i really want to make one.

----

make up quilted wall kit
cosmetic bag clutch from quilted bags
fleece mittens/hats? (seems very wrong, but undoubtedly quicker than knitting)
lobster mittens

i'm actually excited about christmas gifts since it is august and not december. i was excited last year too, until i almost had a panic attack. i'm proud to say i'm almost done with one present and another is on the needles. i have a feeling i'm just going to make a ton of items and decide who they go to later.

i'm also still determined to decrease my stash before buying more yarn, so it's gonna be a challenge. some of that yarn has been sitting around forever, waiting for me to find the right project. i need to drive home this point b/c knitpicks is really tempting me with their new yarn lines. *sigh*

now to selfishly finish the minisweater for me me me. and *then* i promise i'll get cracking on the christmas gifts.
