Exchanges finished

I have finished and posted the last of my exchanges  for this year, I have really enjoyed doing them and receiving the lovely parcels through the post. Now I need to concentrate on my Xmas pressies not been very organised this year. My mother on visiting the Knitting and stitching show in Harrogate persuaded me to knit a jacket for her for Christmas the stall holder assured me it takes only 10 hours to knit as you can see it is on

large needles which are 15mm and you knit with four strands of thread, I must admit it does knit up quickly as you can see I have all ready finished the back and started one side of the front which I have actually now nearly finished.
