It's A Jungle In Here!

So, after we got home and unpacked, we all made our way into the living room and discovered that it had been turned into a jungle. See?
Those are my aunt and uncle's plants that they brought over for us to plant-sit while they're on a cruise. There really are a bunch of them. Anyways, back to knitting.

I wimped out on SnB last night. I was too tired and after picking up Spooky and bringing her home, letting her run around, and then unpacking, all I wanted to do was take a bath and go to bed. So, I did. I did take pictures though, so here you go.

First up, the finished Noro hat that I'm giving DF's sister for Christmas:
And a better shot for the colors of the hat:Thanks again to Anxious Dog on Ravelry for sending the yarn and the pattern!

Here's the finished broad street mitten and the one in progress:Sorry the pictures are so dark. The camera didn't like trying to figure out if it was blue or black. Here is the in-progress one:And last, but not least, when we picked up all the mail that had been held for us while we were gone, I had another surprise from that contest I won on the Ravelry Christian Knitters group. This one was from Kay and I can't wait to start working with the lovely yarn.Two skeins of Sassy Stripes in a nice blue colorway and a big skein of Alpaca Sox yarn in the prettiest jewel tones I have seen in a long time. I can't wait to work with them both!

Thanks again for all the gifts you guys! They're all great!

That's it for today. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to show you another finished mitten, and who knows, maybe I'll start on another project, or at least wind some yarn for one.

Knit on...

Those sk of Sassy Stripes would make an awesome House of Awesome scarf, if you were into it.
