While I am not doing any holiday knitting, I did decide to make a little something as a gift:
Fabulous, isn't it? Any guesses as to the final design?
In other news, for the last minute holiday shoppers, I'd like to point you to some things I have made that you can also read --
For the knitter in your life, Sweater Quest: My Year of Knitting Dangerously makes a great present. For the mentally ill person in your life, Hillbilly Gothic: A Memoir of Madness and Motherhood could a be strong choice, depending on the flavor of that person's particular illness.

And on that self-promotional note, I am off to get the last of the gifts in the mail. This makes me happier than I can begin to describe.
