My handmade gifts were all really well recieved :) The reaction to curious george was "you MADE that?" which is always nice. The sweater fit my little sister very well, and she liked it. You can't see the detail and she's making a funny face, but here she is wearing it:
I was worried the sleeves would be too short, I'm glad I didn't extend them, I just stretched them a bit when blocking. ***WOW does blocking make a difference in a sweater - I'm definitely converted. The stitches soften and even, and the fabric drape gets so much nicer***

I'm going to make the Broadripple socks from and they are going to be FOR ME! :)
