On the knitting front I've completed another order for a Kaia Babydoll - this time in cotton (modelled above by my petite two year old). It's a size 2 - 3 years old and I added some length so it can be worn as a dress now and last longer as a babydoll top.
I'm also halfway through a pair of socks for Kim's Christmas present - not terribly exciting for him to get one sock only on Christmas Day!!
And thanks again to Julia's DH for the fantastic sock blocker!! This was my first ever sock, and although it took f.o.r.e.v.e.r I'm keen to get stuck into the second one as I've learnt a lot from the first and want to perfect some techniques for future socks.
I have also decided that next year I will spend time during the year making things for gifts for next Christmas so that there isn't the extra time pressure too close to Christmas. It is such a great feeling to make something that someone else can use and treasure - and handmade gifts mean so much more. Having said that, my children are pretty delighted with their Singstar present!
I have a couple of things on my needles right now, so will hopefully be updating this blog again soon.
