I've actually started my Christmas knitting. I know many people will have planned well ahead for this and have most things actually wrapped already, but this is unusual for me. I usually find myself on Christmas Eve, thinking "I could have made so and so a such and such..."
So, I give you, completed, a cardigan for my youngest neice, R.
It's based on Helena from Knitty, but has some modifications.
I love the picot edging. The yarn is Hacho, by Mirasol, and it's gorgeous to work with.
Flushed with my success, I cast on a felted bag for her mum.
I must admit, I'm not loving working with these huge, 8mm needles.
