24th February 2011: WHOOP! Can FINALLY get started properly on this now. Fabric and socks arrived in the post this morning just as I was setting up my sewing machine. Coincidence. Just waiting for my jumper to arrive then can near get this finished. Whoop! Completely gutted though, I missed out on a pair of perfect boots for him on ebay but was outbid at the last minute. Was the only bidder as well til that point. :( Long, hard search is hard but something will turn up in the end, it always does.
