Oh Christmas Tree & Hacho Mittens
The Christmas tree is up, decorated, and lit. Alex was way more excited this year than he's ever been before. He put up all the ornaments that you see on the bottom 3 feet of the tree, and he did a pretty good job of getting them spread out. Aaron moved one and Alex got really upset so I told him to leave them where Alex put them, and fill in as best he could with the glass ornaments.
I also finished Alex's Hacho mittens finally. To be fair, I finished them last year but he lost one. I didn't think it was necessary to knit the replacement at the time (after all, the season was over), but now it's getting really cold and it's definitely mitten weather. I started them three times before I found the needle size that I used on the original pair.
Now, I just need to finish the one seaming job that is due before Christmas, and I think I can sneak in a quick pair of mittens for myself. Oh, and I also need to finish Sabrina's mittens before she gets here in the next few weeks. Better get some pain killers, cause my fingers are gonna be sore.
