I did manage to finish off my sister's birthday pressie (after relocating the pattern) and finished it on the 29th of December. I am sure I started this in July of 2009 so it has sat around for a bit. It is from the Sirdar Big Softie Knits For Beginners book 344.
Pattern: Design B - One Button Wonder. I made the size 14 but I am hoping it is long enough, seems a little bit cropped to me compared to the sleeves but we will see how it looks when she tries it on.
I have managed to finish off all the birthday shopping for January
8th - my sister's birthday
12th - my goddaughter's birthday
16th - Lachie's 16th birthday (makes me feel old)
21st - my mum's birthday
Thank goodness most other birthdays fall during the year and are spread out a bit too. I have lots of cousins and aunts in January too but never see them much or buy them pressies - thank goodness!!!!
Hope you are all enjoying your holidays if you are having them. Isabelle is learning to sew a ribbon bag these holidays and Lachlan is reading all his new books so Im hoping they dont get too bored early on. I am going to try and do some sewing these holidays and finish off some socks that I started 2 days ago, one knit and one to go!
