More fun with ornaments

I don't know why I didn't start doing this sooner, but I've been having a blast knitting ornaments (as you probably know by now, lol).  Alex turned in his teacher gift, and she showed it off to the entire class.  He said that he got high-fives from everyone and that they talked about it all through circle time.  I think they were just talking, and he assumed it was about the ornament...I mean, what else could they be talking about?! lol.

Since the Christmas balls, I've make two mittens from the Smittens pattern, two ornaments from The Knitter's Almanac, and I whipped up a little sweater for the tree.  This yarn is from a pair of socks that Rain from Honey & Ollie knit for me a million years ago, for our first (and my only) sock swap.  The socks were later attacked by carpet beetle larva, and I had to rip them out so that I could knit little hexipuffs for my Bee Keeper's Quilt with the left over yarn.  That way I can keep them forever.  I figured I had quite a lot of this yarn, and it would make a beautiful little sweater ornament (and I was right).  And since Alex was upset with me for giving away the mini-mittens, tree, and star ornaments (they were gifts to my coworkers), I figure I'll finish my last Expressions hat today and spend the rest of my free time knitting more ornaments and baking gingerbread cookies.  It's my first year for both activities.  We'll see how it goes :)
