Lots of other things on my web page that make great gifts but I just selected a few of those that I thought could reasonably be knit in the remaining time period. Even it isn't totally finished you can always wrap it up with a promise to get to it over the holidays. Not only is a knitted gift useful but it comes with lots of love. Nobody knits for someone they don't love or like a whole lot.

Happy Knitting, Rochelle

I am sure you don't want to be reminded or to even think about it but it is less then 5 weeks plus a couple days to Christmas   J
