Christmas Knits

Well, I didn't make it, of course. I did wrap up hubby's sweater (I had all the pieces done) and told him that some assembly was required for it. I'm almost done seaming it now - hopefully will finish tonight. I also wrapped his two single socks that were finished and I'm hoping to finish the second socks this week. 

I did finish The Bug's outfit - weeks before Christmas, thankfully.

  1. Just too cute!

    I'm with you: what does a baby dress need with pockets, fake or otherwise? When she learns to put her hand in a pocket, she may have one. VBG!

  2. Those are all so cute! I'm amazed you still get so much knitting done with such a small baby around. I love that tiny dress.

  3. Talk about best knit-dressed baby! Adorable.

    Hee hee - I love the idea of presenting a knt gift with "some assembly required" on the box.
