I think annual maternity leave would help me a great deal in getting christmas makes finished in time. I finished my sister in law's wrist warmers and I am writing up the pattern for a friend to proof for me, and today, I finished Eliza's ballerina, I started her on Monday and stitched the last bits together today.
She's a variation on Alan Dart's Tooth Trader, but modified to be a ballerina instead of a fairy,
I think she turned out reasonably well.... I mean, knitted toys are not my forte, but, well, it's ok.
