Can you stand the excitement?

I started this little sweater last weekend, and if it wasn't for the distraction of that baby blanket, it would have sleeves by now. As I indicated below, the pattern is from Ann Budd's Knitter's Handy Book of Sweater Patterns and the yarn is Lion Cotton-Ease (I promise that with a good washing, the stitches will be perfectly even). When this baby is finished, I have to start another for her twin sister.

But here's the dilemna... my nieces will be 4 in April and these were to be their birthday gifts. In hopes that they would be able to wear them next fall and early winter, I knit them a size larger, but now fear that they are going to be huge. So do I wait and give them for Christmas, or just give them as planned... Oh well, I'll just knit on for now. I'm planning on embroidering (with my remedial skills) each girl's initial on the front.
