Not this year thankfully! Last year I started about now and made personalised stockings for the smaller grandchildren and also loads of tiny wee dark red glitter wool drawstring sacks tied with raw jute string and filled with little Christmas chocolate eggs. I no longer do sweaters etc as gifts because most people don't appreciate the time and effort required not to mention the cost of decent yarn.
Two years ago I knitted my baby grandson a beautiful santa sweater and hat to match. His parents were delighted with it and he wore it at Christmas parties, lunch etc. then the bastards sold it on e-bay! I know that someone else will get to enjoy it but..................
