Christmas Presents are started

I always run out of time for all the things that I want to make for Christmas presents. This is my optimistic list this year:

  • Aran vest for Ryder
  • velvet dress for Maryn
  • socks for Gord
  • socks and dressing gown for Jack
  • carpet bag for Stephanie
  • socks for Alice
  • place mats for Shirley and maybe David and Amy
  • blackberry jam for everyone
  • socks for Kim and Katie
So far  I have completed Ryder's vest, ta da! Sorry for the poor quality pictures, it is hard to photograph white as it reflects back the light.
The pattern is available on Ravelry as a pdf download
