Potato Print Gift Wrap & A Warm Winter Jumper

I still had tons of parcel wrap left from when I made my kite, so I decided to turn it into some Christmas gift wrap.

I'd totally forgotten about it until it literally fell on me. Sewing the pieces together and weaving in the lose end didn't actually take that long and I now have a cosy, warm jumper to get me through winter.

So I spend Saturday afternoon knitting while watching "Journey to the Center of the Earth" (the 1959 version of course) and Sunday afternoon knitting and watching "The Secret Garden". Needless to say, I now want a tam like Mary's:
