For J's version, I added a self-drafted hood since she prefers hoodies over sweatshirts. I also increased the length of the sleeves to full-length (as opposed to the 3/4 length sleeves in the pattern). I'm not sure what the deal is with the waistband at the bottom of the top, but I shorted it by several inches and it was still WAAAAY too big, so I ended up adding a drawstring so it could be cinched up.

I also made a purse for my husband's nana, as well as a hot water bottle cover for his great-aunt. I can't seem to find photos of either of them at the moment, but I know I did take some! Anyways, it's New Year's Eve tonight (not typically one of my favourite nights, it always seems to be a let-down), but it should be alright. We're going to some friends' place for a house party, so I'd better scoot and get ready. Hope all 5 of you that might possibly read this have a safe, healthy and happy 2011!
