My xmas make


I just wanted to share the Aran jacket that I made for DD1 for her xmas present.  The pattern itself was for a normal length cardigan with no hood so she added a few requests!  She and her sister and myself are all monkeys in that we have long arms so to get it made to measure was a real treat for her!

She was on her way home from work - hence the tired look!  I had to share also this second photo as she always embarrassed me in wool shops when looking for a pattern as she was always laughing at the models posing in their knitwear!!  This is her version of them!

She would kill me if I didnt balance things up so here she is as her usual self!
You can see her favourite colour!
Thanks for your visit!
