Here are the cute little postcards that I received from one of postcard partners. Soo sent me 3 little Christmas tree postcards, which I think are adorable. She also makes really lovely things, as I checked out her blog as soon as I received them. How nice to receive such nice little pressies in the mail.
Also as promised I finished the dress for my friend's daughter for Christmas.
Pattern: Thinking Dress from Miss Bea's Rainy Day book.
Yarn: Cotton Ease in Turquoise. I only used about 1 and a half balls.
Size: 1 to 2 years.
I sewed a little blue heart on the neckline at the back to fasten the opening. I think it came out rather cute. Pity I never made one for Isabelle, but I did knit her one in denim but with just plain stockinette stitch, and a pink flower appliqued on it. It still hangs in the wardrobe and has only been worn a few times. Maybe I will show it later in the week and see if anybody with a little girl would like it. I think it is about a size 3 to 4 years.
I also finished up my other Christmas knit for my friend's son who is nearly 1 year old. This is George from the Jaeger 29 book. I omitted the pockets, I just dont think it is a good idea to provide hidey holes for food in knitted items, and it might get a bit soggy too, so I think it turned out okay. This is the 1 to 2 year size, and I used Zhivago in an olive color. Nice and soft. Now to pop these into the Christmas present pile to be wrapped, and they are good to go. Happy knitting!
