FO’s and I won a contest!

Plugging away at the Christmas knitting, I finished a hat for my fiancés dad today. I knit the larger size.

In other news, I won a contest over at the knitallyear blog! Yay! I feel so special that I won ^_^ Apparently, I won 10 balls of yarn from Webs, and an autographed cartoon from Franklin Habit at The Panopticon blog! Yay!!!

My second FO this week was a pair of fingerless gloves for myself. This way I can knit while I’m waiting for the bus without getting (too) cold. I love the thumb on the pattern, and the yarn I used is really nice too.
