This a quick round up of all the gifts I made for my friend's kiddies this Christmastime, I had planned to do this post whilst on my Christmas break but with being poorly I couldn't find the energy.
To be honest the only thing I really achieved was, to watch too many period crime dramas (Poirot, Marple, Sherlock Holmes), knit a few more inches on my Christmas jumper sleeves and eat my body weight in chocolate - couldn't taste it, didn't matter, I was sick, not dead!
I especially love the Reindeer pattern, (see left) which also can be turned into a dog, perhaps for next year!
I did have to deviate from the original pattern somewhat. Firstly I just could not seem to get the correct number of stitches at any point during knitting (me or the pattern I'd put my money on it being me!). Secondly, I ran out of time, I seriously underestimated just how long it takes me to knit up a fully clothed dolly! So their dresses are sleeveless and collarless, though I am sure the little girls won't mind!
