Awesome Christmas Gifts
For New Year's Eve each year, we celebrate Christmas with our friend Charles.  We exchange gifts and then go out for a nice dinner.  It's always festive and always fun.  Combined with Christmas at Thaddeus' family's house and then Christmas with my family, there is ample opportunity for gifts.

Here are two of my knit-related gifts I got this year.

These are a pair of texting gloves made from various tweed fabrics, felt and knitted fabric from a company called baabaazuzu.  Each pair is unique and they're very warm and allow me to text or knit whist keeping my hands warm

This is a fantastic book I hadn't seen yet called Knit Your Own Cat by Sally Muir and Joanna Osborne with 16 knitting patterns for actually knitted cats...quite ingenious (they also have a couple of books called Knit Your Own Dog!)

Anyone else get any great knit-related gifts this year?
