I choose to knit her a sweater with a hood this year:
Pattern: Manda Ruth by Jane Richmond (p.s. Love love love her designs, I will knit something from her for myself next!)
Yarn: Lark by Quince and Co
This arm pit had to be patched a bit as I am still acquiring my stitch pick up skills. Also for this project I thought myself with the use of You Tube how to do Magic Loop. I found that with the small opening of the arms it was difficult to use DPNs, with the magic loop method it was much easier to handle and quicker for me.
